    Container as Guest House - I wouldn't mind staying here Poteet Architects blue container guesthouse with roof garden San Antonio Texas

  • Melissa Blaine

    Though this Texas garden retreat and guesthouse is only 8' x 40', it features all the comforts of a larger house: floor-to-ceiling glass doors and windows, heating and air-conditioning, a green roof, bamboo flooring and wallcoverings, a small sink and shower, and a composting toilet.“The green roof was an element that I had not thought of at the beginning, but as it turns out saves me more money on air-conditioning than the solar would have, and is a lot prettier,” says the resident.

    shipping container studio in San Antonio designed by Texas architect Jim Poteet. Painted a deep blue, the 40′ shipping container was transformed into a gorgeous backyard retreat, complete with a living green roof, composting toilet, rainwater collection and eco friendly finishes. The studio retreat also features floor-to-ceiling windows cut out of the container, blown-in insulation, and bamboo floors and walls.

    Luxury, imposing houses aren’t the only ones that can benefit from a green roof. Even something as small and simple as a shipping container house can use some of its benefits. It’s the case of this lovely shipping container guest house from San Antonio.
