I've been playing around with the design of a shipping container house that has 3 beds/ 2 baths and is around 750 square feet. Because the shipping containers are only 8 feet wide, you really have to maximize your space with murphy beds, but I tried to make the living spaces feel spacious, and I provided a lot of outdoor space.

Why use shipping containers? A used shipping container of this size can range from $3500 - $5000, which can really save on construction costs. By maximizing space and keeping the square footage low, it lowers the overall costs as well. This can make owning a home accessible to more people or even give people the ability to pay off their mortgage more quickly.

What would you do with your money if you didn't have rent or a mortgage each month?

I am so excited about this new project! It is a Mid-Century Modern home in Morningside that hasn't been updated since the 1980s. We are trying to undo some of the 80s additions and bring it back to it's original beauty.

Here is another fun kid's space. It's a basement playroom. Instead of a typical playroom with an explosion of primary colors, this one has a combination of natural wood and neutral tones. It is still playful with tree decals, a playhouse under the stairs, and a swing chair, but it also a space the grown-ups in the house would enjoy hanging out it in.
