Jon and Kristen Meier think outside the box by building in it! They create custom, one of a kind shipping container homes and their latest client has them designing a three-container structure in the Smoky Mountains of North Carolina. Dealing with tricky terrain and inclement mountain weather, the team enlists the help of their family to install bowling alley wood countertops, large patio doors and a huge back deck with a spiral staircase leading up to a rooftop observation platform. With both Kristen and their client about to have babies, there are deadlines and due dates looming so it's a race to the finish line to complete the build on time.
Jon and Kristen want to change the way people think about container living and start by tackling their biggest build yet. They stagger two 40-foot containers and open the walls between them to create a massive great room. Then, they add a large deck to accommodate friends and family for entertaining.
Jon and Kristen design and build a container home for a local couple's adopted son and fill it with fun features like a lofted bed, hydraulic TV winch and an outdoor fire pit. They also build a second container with a custom workshop and rooftop deck with a driving range. However, with a massive hurricane rapidly approaching, it's all hands on deck as the team frantically works to batten down the hatches in time to save the build.
Jon and Kristen raise the bar by taking on their biggest container home yet for a homeowner who wants a home where her entire family can bunk down and enjoy the amazing views her property affords. An A-frame roof, full-size kitchen and multi-level covered porch are a few of the stunning features in this game-changing container build.
Jon and Kristen are eager to begin work on a very special container home that combines a unique design with the scenic beauty of South Texas. The home consists of three containers stacked to create a cantilevered look with multi-level decks that offer stunning views of nature all around. A great room with two guest bedrooms is down below with a kitchen and master suite up top complete with refurbished clawfoot bathtub. This visually stunning build will expand the imagination and show off the nearly limitless combinations that can be achieved with container homes.
Jon and Kristen work to build a container home for the in-laws when they come to visit their new grandson. With only four weeks to complete the project, the couple must tackle 20-foot and 40-foot containers to create a rooftop deck and an indoor living area.
