Up-cycled Shipping Container Homes & Studios
A guest house/garden retreat/playhouse by Jim Poteet of Poteet Architects in San Antonio, Texas
I have this obsession with up-cycled containers and I have posted about them here and here. I just love that you can take ugly, old shipping containers and turn them into something so beautiful. I mean to look at these pictures you would never guess that the original building material once sat on a dock or in a train yard. I am so in awe of these spaces, especially the artist studio.
