Precious cargo: Check out this luxurious shipping container home

Living in a shipping container might instantly sound like a nightmare, but if you know how to spruce it up, you could live a life of luxury.

This is what one architect has proven in Dallas, Texas, with a 3,700-square-foot house completely composed of shipping containers. Matt Mooney, who is responsible for the design, wanted to stay true to the materials as he built his creation, according to The Daily Mail. However, he knew that this didn’t have to translate into “ugly” or “uncomfortable.”

The house, which is known as PV14, is situated near White Rock Lake. A series of 18-wheelers needed to bring 14 large, steel boxes into the neighborhood to make Mooney’s dream a reality. He had been envisioning PV14 in his mind for more than 25 years, according to the Houston Chronicle. Now, the humble abode is complete, and Mooney is enjoying every inch of it with his wife, Barbara, a retired nurse.

The house can accommodate a single family with three bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms. It has a two-car garage, ground-level entertainment area, and a storage bay. The walls are double-insulated and have steel modules to maintain the structural integrity of the building. A concrete pier and beam foundation ensures that the house will be around for years to come.

However, it’s the luxury features of PV14 that may be shocking to those who thought Mooney would be limited by shipping containers. The house has a small penthouse and a roof deck with a panoramic view of the city. It also features deep balconies that allow natural light to flow freely throughout the structure. As a cherry on top, PV14 has a 40-foot-long swimming pool.

Recently, the house was on display for a tour organized by Dallas’s chapter of the American Institute of Architects. Although the tour is over, the house continues to make headlines for its use of unusual materials.
