Greetings from New York! 🙂
A simple yet striking design on today’s shipping container home. Dubbed The Black Rock Shipping Container House by the media, this L-shaped house using 3 shipping containers is located on Kail Street in Black Rock, Buffalo, New York. This house was constructed for a Black Rock native who recently returned to the area.
Construction of this shipping container home started in July 2017 and is now finished. As far as true shipping container projects in Buffalo, this is one of the first to come to fruition, especially in the residential department.
The house consists of two flush parallel containers creating the two-story section of the home, and a third perpendicular container creates the one-story portion of the home. A rectangular tower was constructed between the two masses. Windows were added to all of the containers, while paneling was affixed to the tower. Next came a green paint job, before landscaping in the front yard (with patio seating) appeared.
Looking at the house from Kail Street, the left side of the house, which appears as its front, sits in the foreground while the actual front of the house appears as the right side of the home. The three metal shipping containers will form a one bedroom home, with kitchen, living room, and a bathroom. The second floor is for storage.
The house was built diagonally on the Lot, to make full use of a big tree, and to maximize the space they can grow food in their yard.
We tried to find more photos of the exterior and of the interior but nothing. If you know the owners or know of where we can share more photos, please let us know! Always happy to share more awesome photos. 🙂
So what do you think? Would you live here? ☺
