Picture this...Mountain views, a private hot tub, a fully stocked pond to fish, and you are surrounded by the beautiful scenery in West Virginia. Did I mention that this amazing spot is a shipping container?

Shipping Containers are the New Way to Vacation

They are even a very popular way to live. HGTV even has an entire series about Container Homes. I can't even imagine the work that goes into transforming a giant container into any type of living space. When you factor in adding electricity, water, and creating living spaces, it seems like a huge challenge. But if they are renovated and placed in great vacation spots, you could probably make a nice penny on Airbnb rentals.

The Perfect Couple's Getaway

My friend Hope (From the P'ton days) and her husband recently stayed in a shipping container for part of their anniversary. I can't even commit to a cabin, let alone a house that is made out of a shipping container. I'm just more of an all-inclusive hotel resort kind of girl. However, seeing Hope's rave review of their stay could sway me, maybe.

The Hideaway on Tacketts - Shipping Container


Here's the overview of the inside of this cozy spot. It's in Hurricane, West Virginia, and rents for around $135 per night. They had a great time, and I'm just a little jelly about the time away. We haven't traveled in quite a while. Am I going to make sure that my husband sees this - Yes.

See Inside the Indiana Home with a 2,700 Underground Bunker

No one knows exactly why the bunker was built. However, Tiffany Sherman of Realtor.com spoke with the listing agent, John Pfifer with Your Home Team in February of 2022 who said it was his understanding the bunker was built by the original owner of the property. A millionaire who was, "kind of into military surplus and had tanks and all kinds of different weapons. He did use it for his residence, but it’s more like a Doomsday bunker.”

With just under 700 more square footage than the house it shares the Spencer, Indiana property with, the bunker features, "200 amp service, 20 LED lights, water line coming in, vent piping for [a] future heat source, floor drains & escape hatch," according to the listing on Realtor.com which lists Corina Jones with Your Home Team as the property's agent, not Mr. Pfifer. Those 2,700 square feet are spread across 14 rooms, one of which is a 55-foot by 8-foot shooting range.
