We've all seen Shipping Container homes, but how many of us can say we've actually stayed in one? Built from recycled shipping containers, these simply amazing, durable, iron boxes were once used to ship just about anything imaginable around the globe by land and sea.
Now, with a new lease on life, FLOPHOUZE has transformed these containers into unique, comfortable, cozy living spaces. Come Stay, you won't want to leave.
FlopHouze V contains one private room with a queen bed and twin bunk beds. In the living area we have a funky and comfortable mid century couch. An efficient Hollywood bathroom separates the space with an iron and hair dryer. Outside, each Houze has its own fire-pit, hammock and chairs. Inside, the kitchenette features a sink, microwave, mini fridge, tea kettle and Chemex coffee maker for the morning get up an goers! The interiors are cladded with sustainably harvested wood from our farm in upstate New York and reclaimed lumber from a distillery in Kentucky. The windows were salvaged from a school in Philadelphia that was slated for demolition, and provide tons of natural light. On a playful note, we installed kitchen cabinet bases from an FDA laboratory in Brooklyn, and old bowling alley floors from Texas for the counter-tops! Upon your arrival, each Houze will have complimentary coffee and tea, Topochico sparkling water, and Mexican Cokes. Just a short drive away in Round Top, there is a market for light snacks and other goodies. Every detail has been carefully crafted to ensure that your stay is a memorable one
