Greetings from Puerto Rico! 🙂
Today’s The Casa Club Exclusive is a good one! This tiny container home located in the southwest coast of Puerto Rico is a true gem! We reached out to Pablo A. Nieves, the homeowner and builder, and got all the details of his almost completed build.
Located in Cabo Rojo, Puerto Rico, this project started in 2016 by Evelyn and Pablo Nieves as a relaxing-from-work spot. They wanted to use a 20 foot container to make sure that there was no big maintenance that would consume all their time, and they could spend more time enjoying it. Their tiny container home is located right next to the Caribbean US Fish and Wild Life reserve, right on mountain bike trails paradise, and 5 minutes from a variety of crystal clear beaches. Which sounds like an amazing piece of property to be honest!
Evelyn and Pablo wanted the bathroom to have an industrial look with the exposed copper and chrome details. Barn style bathroom door helps with space saving for additional options. The deck was planned to be an excellent space for entertaining for friends and family.
Designed to be robust by a local structural engineer who took in consideration that the container home is located in a hurricane path is one of the reasons they kept the original steel doors as storm protection.
So we know what you are asking, how much is this entire project costing? Pablo tells us that with the structural engineering designs, all the government permits, the land, and the container, they are looking at around $73,000.
Even though their home isn’t finished, it is shaping up to be a stunner! Thanks again to Pablo and Evelyn Nieves for sharing this exclusive with us at The Casa Club! 🙂
So what do you think? Would you live here?
