Container homes have certainly taken the architectural world by storm, which is why we thought it only fitting to list a handful of old-shipping-containers-turned-stylish-homes that won’t break the bank.

After all, what’s the point of spending a fortune on your home if you’re not going to have a cent left for décor and furniture (not to mention utilities) afterwards?
