Why: This two-storey home in Wuxi, China, is environmentally-friendly, and can be easily moved if necessary. The components of the build also allow the structure to be self-sustaining, with rooftop solar panels and a mechanism that harvests rain water for flushing, washing and cleaning.Photographer:Jens Markus LindheSource:Arcgency

The center of the space can be customized to a buyer’s specifications, but typically includes the kitchen and living room.Photographer:Jens Markus LindheSource:Arcgency

With one wall of the kitchen made up of folding glass doors, the room can be easily opened up to the outdoors. Container designs typically combine the kitchen and the rest of the living area, making it a flexible space that can be used for multiple purposes.Photographer:Jens Markus LindheSource:Arcgency

How much: $35K–$165K

Why: The standard 1930s air stream gets a modern makeover with this one in Andalusia, Spain. The home-on-wheels offers all the luxuries of a standard anchored abode, but its portability means you can easily travel the country or relocate on a whim.Source:Airbnb

This isn’t your average trailer kitchen. The sleek cooking space would satisfy even the most discerning foodies — it’s fully equipped with an oven, microwave, fridge and freezer. At the back, a small bed is spacious for one, and nice and cozy for two.Source:Airbnb

How much: Price available upon request

Why: It’s a conversation-starter. This custom home in Itu, Brazil, was developed to work with the natural land, which definitely is a premium most home buyers can’t afford, but if you can, it’s worth it. While the main floor looks like three separate buildings, they’re actually connected by floor-to-ceiling glass walls.Source:Organic Architecture

The glass walls break down the division between indoor and outdoor space, allowing the home to pull in two of its main features (the landscape and the adjacent golf course) as part of its interior design.Source:Organic Architecture

How much: $180K–$250K (not including land)

Why: Made from eight containers, this two-storey home is designed with open common areas, as well as private bedrooms and offices on the second floor. According to designer Maria Jose Trejos, using recycled containers for this home reduced the construction time and environmental impact by 20 percent.Source:Maria Jose Trejos

The kitchen is bright and airy with floor-to-ceiling sliding doors and oversized doorways leading into the central living room. It’s a great place for a large family to convene or for social butterflies to host dinner or drinks.Source:Maria Jose Trejos

How much: $180K-$250K (not including cost of land)

Why: As mentioned, shipping containers are great for the environment, and depending on where you’re putting down roots, can be easy on your bank account, too. There are a lot of things to consider if you’re going this route, including whether you’re going to DIY or hire a company to finish the home for you.Photographer:Braden GunemSource:Tomecek Studio

How much: $75K–$500K (not including cost of land)

Why: With a private hot tub and heated pool steps away, this hidden hideaway in France is the perfect getaway. While it’s not exactly kid-friendly, it would work well for empty-nesters or a young couple with no plans to expand their family.Source:Airbnb
