Steel Studio Apartment, Costa Rica

One of the best things about shipping container architecture is that it’s accessible to just about everyone, not just the high-concept designers and architects. This small studio apartment is sold in Costa Rica for about $15,000 – perhaps a little pricey for a studio in some parts of the world, but for owning your own little slice of Costa Rica, it seems pretty reasonable. The 20 foot-long container apartment is available from Shipping Container Homes in San Ramon.
