Widower transforms shipping container into studio
Separating from a partner or losing a loved one can send some people into a deep spiral. Most people wouldn't have the energy or interest to start a creative project during their grieving period, but sometimes that's exactly what a person needs to get back onto his or her feet.
Mr. Evans is the perfect example of this: When he lost his wife after years of illness, he was given the difficult task of clearing out an old shipping container where the couple had stored all their worldly possessions. But instead of deciding what to keep and what to toss, he emptied the entire thing and transformed it into his new living quarters.
His entire home is less than 160 ft². I don't think this would be an option for people with claustrophobia, but Evans loves his new space.
He has everything he needs: a bed, couch, mini-kitchen, and even a bookcase for storage.
He drew on many years of experience as a ship builder to plan and construct the inside of his new place.
The kitchen doesn't only have a gas stove, it also has a microwave, sink, and more!
Evans carefully arranged details to make sure his home felt cozy. He also insulated the walls and ceiling to make sure it could withstand the winter months.
Who would've thought that he could create such a homey place out of an old shipping container? He could even travel around the world in his home—it's still moveable.
