This New Zealand couple traded in their posh home complete with tennis courts and swimming pool and opted for a much simpler accommodations made from a pair of 40ft high cube shipping containers situated in the middle of a cherry orchard. Priorities.

If have been stuffing your piggy bank for years to buy that plot of land in the mountain to give you easy access to the slopes, consider container a home construction.

They are built to withstand the rigors of international shipping so you can be confident they will be warm and dry in the winter. They are one big conversation piece so you will be the most interesting designy homeowner in the hood. Also since they are constructed from decommissioned containers, you will be doing your part to reduce, reuse and recycle every moment you are at home chilling. Whats not to love:
