Life Style

The Black Box, a gorgeous Scandinavian style container house consisting of two retail units.

If you are used to following our publications, then you have probably noticed that we really love to show you incredible houses. Whether for sale, rental or self build, custom homes are becoming a thriving property market and it’s always interesting to see what’s going on around the world before perhaps building your own… There’s a beautiful container house in Khamloops, British Columbia in Canada Catherine. Black Box welcomes you to the shores of Lake Thompson in the heart of the Okanagan. Opening!

Two versions of this house…

Black Box can be rented in whole or in part, together with a small, well-equipped container studio. The house is obviously bigger, but the neighboring studio is already great! The house offers two separate bedrooms and a studio, only one for a couple. Whichever option you choose, you will be relaxed with stunning views and interior design in Scandinavian style, calming and inspiring calm and serenity. The whole house is built from 4 containers, two large models were glued together to form the main house and two small ones were placed opposite to form the studio… The two spaces are separated by a beautiful porch that traverses both structures.

Inside the black box

The interior of the container house is decorated in a pure Scandinavian style. Minimalistic, but functional and comfortable, it has a bedroom, kitchen, living room, bathroom with toilet. Settling into this superb home lost in the woods doesn’t mean disconnecting from the world: you can share your incredible photos on Instagram as Wi-Fi is available for free. The bedroom has a queen size bed with a very comfortable foam mattress topper that will let you sleep like babies in the middle of nature…

To check in, it is enough to take some clothes with you, the rest is provided for you (dishes, linen, magazines, games, TV, etc.). During the season you can also use the provided summer kitchen hosts who live year-round in the “house” part and with whom you will have to travel between the two houses… You can also bring your pets with you, they are welcome in the “Black Box”!
