Tiny is Trending Now

Bigger is not always better when buying and enjoying a home. Smaller is the trend today; you can do just about everything in a tiny home that you can in a huge mansion, enjoy it just as much, and be just as creative with design and décor.

Custom Container Homes

A container home customized for tropical Costa Rica living is the perfect solution for living in paradise. A single-unit container home is an inexpensive and eco-friendly year-round residence for one to three, and even four people. It can also be a low-upkeep vacation home to generate income. It is easily adaptable for eco-friendly off-grid living.
Today’s ultimate in tiny homes is the container home. Forget about the ugly brown box. Today’s designers have created customized, attractive container homes that can stand tall in any community. Look at what we have built! The only limit is your imagination. Your very own comfortable, contemporary container home on one of our 1.25-acre ocean view lots can be next.

Our First Container Home

Our first home is a four-container luxury residence that we finished last summer. To find where we are, paste these coordinates —  9.603214, -84.586708  — into your Google Maps search. Zoom in on the Satellite View, and you can see the home we have built.
The developer is Richard Krug, who has lived in Costa Rica for the past 30 years, and is best known as one of the pioneers of sportfishing tourism in the country. The builder was Gabriel (Gabe) Tomasini, a licensed welder who was a California building inspector before coming here to build this home. See the outstanding comments and review of this residence - go to Minute 26 on this documentary produced by a film company from Toronto, Canada.

Why Container Homes?

Quick Build Times

Quick Build Times

At a fraction of the cost

A container home can be built quickly. It costs less to build than a house built of conventional materials. It can be customized and built off-site, and then delivered to your land ready to move in. Once completed you can live in your tiny home, while you build your dream home on the same property.

Off-Grid Ready

Off-Grid Ready

Easily converted to self-sufficiency

If you are contemplating off-the-grid living, a tiny container home is far easier to customize with solar panels and water supply than is a traditional home. Everything from the electrical wiring to the plumbing is easily adaptable to a solar panel system, rain catchment, and even battery backups and cisterns.

Low Maintenance

Low Maintenance

Environmentally friendly homes

A tiny home costs less to build, and less to maintain. Containers are built to withstand extreme cold and extreme heat, and everything from rain to snow to sleet. They are earthquake- and hurricane-proof. Tiny homes are environmentally friendly. They leave a smaller footprint, and do less harm to nature.
