Project Type


Brook van der Linde and Husband Ryan Naylor built this charming 1400 sqft 3 bedroom 2 bathroom home over the course of a year with a budget of just $110,000 which included purchasing the Land in Asheville, North Carolina USA all materials, labor and city fee’s, etc.

The two largest cost savings over “conventional construction” being a “pursuit to use low to no cost re-used, scrap and surplus materials” which included 2 x Type 1A 40’ HC Containers and extensive DIY Sweat Equity whenever possible. The couple used their own hands and the hands of friends and family to accomplish a majority of the construction and sourced free / salvaged materials whenever possible - even the spiral staircase was found abandoned in a nearby empty lot.

Not only do houses like this reduce the impact on our planet but it is allowing couples like and Brook and Ryan to build a home they can afford.

Container Home Book 23 – 40 x 28

In my opinion this home is symbolic of the true spirit of the Owner Builder Container Home Movement.
