Can This Souped-Up $65K Container House Go Mainstream?

Here's a fun thought exercise: for $65K, would you rather buy a luxury tiny home made to order, or a custom shipping container home already equipped with a bathroom, laundry units, Bose entertainment system, and everything else you need? That's right—just like the Portland-based company that makes it easy to indulge in the tiny house craze, a Montana-based company wants to do the same for recycled shipping container homes. Montainer, which recently began taking online orders for its all-inclusive container dwellings, offers a base modular unit, Nomad, for $65K, plus the option for expansion modules (which will cost around $20K-$30K). Delivery and installation will add another $10K-$20K to the tab. The end result, though, is a container home that's fully-inspected and move-in ready.
