Shipping Container Homes – Latest Updates

What We are Building Now

We are moving ahead with our shipping container homes. We recently finished another.

We just moved a model one-container spec home (third build) from our partners’ workshop in San José to one of our 1.25-acre ocean view lots above Playa Hermosa south of Jacó for viewings and sales. It will shortly be placed on top of another container for a fabulous ocean view. Contact us for a showing.

We had already completed a lovely customized one-container home for a client who has property on Costa Rica’s Central Pacific coast between Quepos and Dominical. The first container is a self-contained residence with a bunk bedroom, ample living space, full kitchen area and bathroom with shower. It has been designed so that the owner can shortly add one two more container modules for additional living, office and recreational space.

Our builders/designers are working on a two-bedroom, one-container model home, with a bedroom at each end, center bathroom, and kitchen//living area whose wide doors will lead to an expansive deck.
