Video: Lake Highlands home is being built out of shipping containers
Is this the beginning of a new trend?
LAKE HIGHLANDS We’re still waiting for that interview with the homeowners, but until then, we’d like to show you the progress on the Peavy Road home we talked about a few months ago.
We heard rumors from neighbors inside the Old Lake Highlands Neighborhood Association that there was a home planned for Peavy Road that would be made from several shipping containers. Well, after watching construction and hearing from baffled onlookers, we can confirm — this modern house overlooking White Rock Lake will stand out.
Constructed out of seven 40-foot shipping containers stacked on a steel base, this home is not shy design-wise. The crew from Michael Gooden Design and Herman Darden Custom Homes are welding the containers together and using a plasma cutter (you can watch it work in a video below) to construct the second floor. It’s starting to take shape, too. My favorite feature of the home? The rooftop deck. Imagine the view from there!
You can follow the saga of the PV14 house, as it’s called on the website, but we hope to hear the story behind the design and its future residents soon.
