2x 40ft Shipping Container Home, – Sarah House Project, – Glendale, Salt Lake City, Utah
The Sarah House Project is a mostly one-man effort to build a small home out of two 8 by 40-foot shipping containers.
Jeffrey White is adding something new to the mix. Something unexpectedly stylish. Shipping containers.
White’s house is 672 square feet.
White estimates the cost of the project, including the land, at $108,000 – $115,000. This, he says, is close to the cost of a conventional home and is higher than he expected, but White hopes he’ll be able to bring those numbers down in future.
“I would love this house to come somewhere in the $60,000 – $75,000 range,” White said.
The Crossroads Urban Center will eventually sell the home to a low-income single or couple
