Meet Our Models

Our structures start with a Corten steel shipping container called a High Cube. Shipping containers bring goods from around the world, most often China, to America. Once they arrive, they rarely return. They represent a high embedded energy cost, so repurposing them is very environmentally friendly. Because they are water tight, sturdy, and quasi-portable, they are excellent building blocks. Artistry and design turn them into unique living elements.

Rhino Cubed…a Colorado-based company building artistic tiny homes from shipping containers. A shipping container is a perfect building envelope: structurally sound, water tight, and quasi-portable. Creative artistry and design turn them into unique living structures.
