Why We Love This Container Home ADU

One of the most compact shipping container homes we offer, the SADU’s (pronounced say-dew) small footprint can fit almost anywhere. As a studio, it’s the perfect size for an ADU or short-term rental house for one or two people. A couple features to highlight are the open floor plan, a kitchenette with an induction cooktop, and space for a washer/dryer. Like some of our other models, we offer two different roofs you can choose between, giving you the option to pick what best fits your needs.

Due to the size, this unit is best sold as a “shell.” This means the metal fabrication is done and windows are installed, but all electrical, plumbing, drywall, etc. would be completed on site by others.

Interested in getting a feel for what staying in a small container home is like? Feel free to reach out to our first customer in Portland, who hosts a SADU on Airbnb.

Features - We pay attention to the details


We carefully consider the placement of our windows to allow natural lighting and airflow into our homes, while balancing privacy.


A combination of Corten Steel siding and marine grade paint on our container homes provides long-lasting strength and durability.


We use high-quality laminate flooring that is resistant to stains, scratches, and pets. With its authentic wood look, our floors balance beauty with durability.


Each of our homes are built to meet Energy Trust standards, including energy-efficient heating and cooling systems, and insulation that far exceeds code requirements.


Our high-quality finishes, including tiled showers and custom-built shelves, give our homes an elegant and modern feel.


We use top-notch finishes including elegant quartz countertops and brushed nickel fixtures, which complement the stainless-steel finish on our kitchen appliances.


Built-in storage and sliding barn-style doors make the most of available space.
