Greetings from Finland! 🙂


Today we are touring a container home in Harltola Lake, Finland. This summer lake house was built with 4 containers and cost owners 30% of a usual cost of building a house in the area. With the interior measuring at 60 square meters (646 sq. ft.) and the terrace at 54 meters (581 sq. ft.), this house is very impressive! Complete with a black exterior and white interior, a few simple but effective decorating methods, and as a result you have a very nice cottage.











Container homes come in all sizes and colors, or even covered in wood and can be found practically everywhere from industrial plots to hidden in the woods or placed on a cliff at the seaside. I kind of like the idea of a container home as it seems almost like a home you can pick up and place in another town or country you would like to live.

A container firm combined the containers, placed electricity, radiators, isolation and windows. The family uses old lakeside saunas to bath, and it took a day to place them near the lake where they were stacked side by side and two on top.

You know me, I try to give you every ounce of information on a container house I can find on the web, but I just couldn’t find any more information on this house other than a few blog posts and the photographer. If you know more information, please let me know!


So what do you think? Would you live here? 🙂
