Shipping Container House

Imagine, your home theater completely safe from rogue North Korean EMP atmospheric detonations! Or a steel fortress to fend off attacking hoardes from Trenton, NJ!

Container house, on River Road along the Delaware River, Yardley, is a private residence constructed in 2011 from 16 shipping containers. Imagine the neighbors' surprise when a fleet of trucks showed up early one morning to a waiting heavy forklift. A year and thousands of hours of welding later, it was move-in ready. The owner apparently is happy with the Rust-o-leum Red original paint job.

View with caution from River Road where the speed limit is 35 mph, and there is no safe place to pull over, or go around the block for a safer view.
