A prototype shipping container house that is currently on display in the Wynwood Yard and is arguably the first shipping container house in Miami-Dade County, is on the market for $250,000.
Constructed by Wyn-Box, a company that specializes in pre-fab buildings made out of shipping containers, the 640 square foot house is made of two standard containers. It has a large living room and a bedroom and has been fitted out with large insulated and impact resistant windows. The galley style kitchen, and compact bath feature luxury finishes, and an exterior deck is shaded by a wide, louvered awning.
The builders of another house, made of three containers and located outside Miami Shores, are claiming that their house is the first shipping container house in Miami-Dade County. They could technically be right, considering Wyn-Box originally constructed their house at Wynwood Yard to be a prototype showhouse to market their company. For the last year or so it has served as a showroom and hasn’t been lived in. Still, the Wyn-Box was (probably) built first.
The new owner will have to relocate it to a new piece of property. Right now it is directly facing the main stage at the Wynwood Yard. The listing agents are the Toomey Team of Keller Williams Realty.
