located in round top, texas, flophouze presents guests with the opportunity to stay in one of six shipping containers as well as offering a turn key service in designing and building one of their own. each one consists of a living room, kitchen, bedroom and a bathroom with rates starting at $175 per night. guests also have access to fire pits, hammocks, and charging stations for electric vehicles.

from the shipping container itself to the decor within, each one is a clever demonstration of upcycling. the interiors of each container are clad with sustainable wood harvested from the company’s farm in upstate new york, windows have been salvaged from a school in philadelphia that was slated for demolition, and kitchen cabinets had a former life as cabinets in a laboratory in brooklyn. the result is a retro-inspired eco-friendly dwelling with a touch of western attitude.

  • I have been delivering shipping containers for 50 years, I love the different designs/ sizes/ and shapes that shipping containers can be placed and moved, I like also the fact that they can be relocated, it’s not permanent stuature, it can be removed and reinstalled at another location, they are stronger than a building, they are study, And built like a tank,and I am talking about a GERMAN/SHARMAN tank, ok cjm.
