Container Guest House

Container Guest House Jim Poteet

Texas architect Jim Poteet had never worked with a container himself until Stacey Hill approached him about transforming one into a playhouse and a guest house.

The blue-painted container is equipped with heating and air-conditioning systems and its roof is filled with plants to help keep temperatures down inside the building.
