Rhino Cubed’s Zulu Queen Micro Container Home is also a Living Sculpture

was founded by former high tech executive Jan Burton and architect Sam Austin to combine their love of art and design with tiny homes. The company offers two different sizes of container home (20 or 25 ft) with three levels of finish depending on what the buyer wants to do with the container. Get a basic shell with windows and doors to outfit as you want for about $19k. Add on insulation and walls for $30k or have Rhino Cubed construct an entire micro home with the works for about $60k. The top level of finish adds on an IKEA kitchen with a DC refrigerator, a sculptural lofted bed over living quarters and a bathroom. This model also includes a 1250 watt solar generator to run everything you need inside, along with water storage and grey water disposal system, timber frame detail, a porch, and water collection roof.
