The tiny home phenomenon has become pretty widespread across Colorado, but it may come as a surprise to you to find out just how popular it has become to convert an old, metal, shipping container into one of these homes as well.

One Colorado native has done just that and lives more than comfortably in her tiny, shipping container home in the mountains of Colorado.

Meet Jen, a 40-something-year-old Colorado native that moved to Black Hawk somewhere around five years ago.

However, now Jen lives just outside of the popular gambling town in a very unique home made out of a repurposed shipping container.

The home is absolutely amazing, and features things like exterior trim made from Japanese charred cedar which make it fire-resistant, while simultaneously warding off bugs and birds.

The home has all the essentials - a living room, bathroom, kitchen, bedroom, and even a queen-sized pullout couch for when guests come to visit.

Upon deciding that this was the route she wanted to go with her new home, Jen obtained a permit and certificate of occupancy for the property and the house that would be placed on it and had it shipped in by truck and put in place by a crane.

While only 320 square feet in area, the old shipping container makes for perfect-sized living quarters for Jen and her dog Harley, with stunning views to go along with it.
