Sunday Morning Modern

7e0661f06419a60e895055071ad4ce81CONTAINER HOMES 101 | Kelly and I have had a fascination with homes made from shipping containers and have been discussing the reality of them here in Asheville. Over the course of the past couple of years I’ve found a few interesting sources that I thought provided the best overview on them. There is an online article from Better Homes and Garden, a HGTV style video and some Pinterest boards.home-contained-1

Life Inside the Box | This article by Cynthia Bowman provides a good overview on the particular needs of container homes, as well as, some great visuals on a variety of residential uses. It is a “go to” for me. Please enjoy it here.Container

Man Converts Shipping Container | From Better Homes and Garden Television this 20 minute video is a good watch following one man in the creation of his own container home. It provides a step-by-step breakdown on the process from container to a Danish modern living space. We really enjoyed it and you can do so here.47ca221e50ef02aba2e826179888a46e

Pinterest | Of course you know we have our own Pinterest page with a collection of information we’ve been saving. I’ll just connect you to our collective board. We do each have our own boards for our own industrial dream homes. I’m piecing together my own design for a construction using three 20′ containers; 1 for Living, 1 for Bed and Bath, 1 for covered Outdoor Living. All with green roofs. Please enjoy what we have collected here.

Do you have an interest in an actual container home? Let us know by emailing us here. We do have a source and when we have that finalized we can follow-up with you. Until then enjoy your Sunday. Cheers!

Splurge | Upcycled Goods and Furnishings

IMG_2303We recently stopped by to catch up with Robert Nicholas, Asheville’s King of Upcycling. We always enjoy a stroll through his shop. Robert has a distinctive eye for picking vintage objects and crafting light fixtures that defy conventional scale and textures. The same keen eye curates the shops collection of curiosities that creates a sense of discovery and fun for guests. No doubt — he is the master of his domain! So, stop by 37 Paynes Way soon and enjoy the adventure. Cheers!Splurge Comp
