Unique Shipping Container House in Breckenridge, Colorado

F9 Productions recently completed the design of an innovative and one-of-a-kind custom home in beautiful Breckenridge Colorado, uniquely crafted entirely out of shipping containers. This custom single-family home totals 1,600 square feet of finished space and hovers over a two-car carport. The residence is comprised of three bedrooms, three bathrooms, and a harmonious kitchen, living, and dining area. The front of the home is also flanked by a 562 square foot deck that serves as an intermediate space between the natural and built environment.

By combining five 40 foot long “High Cube” shipping containers and elevating them on a web of steel stilts, this home provides expansive views of the Rocky Mountains. Generously sized windows and sliding glass doors are purposefully placed along the long edge of the shipping containers and invite you to a spacious deck that immediately pulls one’s gaze on the surrounding peaks. With a large master suite and bunk rooms that accommodate four additional beds, this modular home creates a perfect mountain retreat for the whole family.


This marks the second shipping-container-focused project for the Colorado-based design firm. The first project of a similar type was the corporate office and headquarters for Eldorado Climbing Walls of Louisville, Colorado.


Unlike the interior-placed shipping containers of Eldorado Climbing Walls though, these shipping containers must battle the elements of the mountains as they are exposed to high winds and intense cold during a majority of the year. Consequently, the Corten steel outer walls and lid are furred with wood framing and filled with closed cell spray foam insulation to keep the interior cozy and warm even during the most intense winters that the Rocky Mountain region has to offer.


If building with shipping containers piques your interest, then F9 Productions is the architecture firm for you!
