Glamping can be defined broadly, including many other unique stays. A popular one today are container homes.
That’s correct! Homes that are crafted from the same container bins you see stacked up in seaports and rolled onto semis. Traditionally they are used to ship goods that get crammed into them overseas. But recently some created welders and contractors have made them into tiny homes.
Like our son, Micah, a graduate from Lincoln Tech’s Welding Academy in Denver. He engineered some simple-yet-open layouts specifically for people who want a restful, semi-outdoor experience. You can stay inside with all the amenities of a simple hotel room. Just slide open the door and you’re outside enjoying a fire as if you’re in a mountainside Colorado condo. The best of both worlds!
Since we decided to stick with tents, we removed two of our three container homes from our property. The third we plan to convert into a studio office down the road after we develop our glamping operation in the spring. You can still see the first version of the container on Airbnb here.
It’s still worth noting how diverse and fun the glamping world can be!
