The six recycled shipping containers have been transformed into a breezy 2,000 square foot beach house complete with an expansive 1,300 square foot exterior deck. It comes with a swimming pool and an outdoor shower and features the most renewable interior materials available. The Eco Top counter by Kliptech is made from 100% post consumer recycled fiber and bamboo fiber while all of the timber, including white oak floors and cypress decking and siding, is FSC-certified.

But the Andersons didn’t stop there. The home boasts the highest-performing appliances available, slashing energy consumption. This combined with the energy-saving water heater, 16 SEER HVAC and friendly spray polyurethane foam insulation not only makes this the first shipping container home at the bottom of Long Island, but also one of the most sustainable. It just goes to show that sustainability can be fashionable for everyone!
