Shipping container homes come to life

Tiny houses are not a thing of the past, and probably won't be for some time.  But several people throughout the United States thought outside the container, if you will, and decided to up the ante a bit and come up with a similar concept, shipping container homes.

These shipping container homes are designed by only a handful of companies throughout the United States, completely manufactured in a factory-controlled environment, so there is no need to worry about quality or reliability.  All you have to do is supply the land, a chunk of change, and the design process begins.

Shipping container home sizes and budgets vary depending on your desires, but can be accomplished with a decent sized home.  The below homes range anywhere from about 1,000 square feet to 2,400 square feet.

Here are a few previews of some of the shipping container homes out there:

Treehouse apartments

Treehouse living in Italy is happening at this apartment complex

Treehouses used to be everyone's childhood dream, but now adults are taking to one of the coolest housing trends ever at this Italian apartment complex.  This apartment complex, called 25 Verde and designed by architect Luciano Pia, stands in Turin, Italy at five stories high with 63 rooms... and it is gorgeous!

According to the property's website, Pia integrated about 150 trees into 25 Verde's eco-friendly design, 40 standing in the courtyard alone, which means less pollution and reduced noise for its residents.  The trees absorb harmful toxins in the air by street cars and even create a microclimate during the seasons, controlling the interior temperatures of the units throughout the year.
