We've all seen Shipping Container homes, but how many of us can say we've actually stayed in one? Built from recycled shipping containers, these simply amazing, durable, iron boxes were once used to ship just about anything imaginable around the globe by land and sea.
Now, with a new lease on life, FLOPHOUZE has transformed these containers into unique, comfortable, cozy living spaces. Come. Stay. you won't want to leave.
Each unit can accommodate 1-4 people. FlopHouze I has a queen bed at one end and full size couch at the other end of the 300 sq. foot space. An efficient hollywood bathroom separates the space with an iron and hair dryer. Outside, each Houze has its own hammock, fire pit and chairs. Inside, the kitchenette features a sink, microwave, mini fridge, tea kettle and coffee maker for the morning get up an goers! The interiors are cladded with sustainably harvested wood from our farm in upstate New York and reclaimed lumber from a distillery in Kentucky. The windows were salvaged from a school in Philadelphia that was slated for demolition, and provide tons of natural light. On a playful note, we installed kitchen cabinet bases from an FDA laboratory in Brooklyn, and old bowling alley floors from Texas to complete the countertops! Upon your arrival, each casa will have complimentary coffee and tea, Topochico sparkling water, and Mexican Cokes. Just a short drive away in Round Top, there is a market for light snacks and other goodies. Every detail has been carefully crafted to ensure that your stay is a memorable one

Very Cool & Well Done
When we pulled up, we weren't quite sure what we were getting ourselves into. However, upon walking in the door, we were greatly surprised! The place is very well done & so clean! Also the bed was super comfortable. It was the perfect little place for my husband & I to stay. It would be fun property for a group to stay too! If we're in Round Top again, we'll definitely stay at The FlopHouze again.
So glad you guys enjoyed your stay! Come back and see us soon!
Super cute, easy check in/out and no issues!
A nice secluded spot to stay for a few folks. Our dog loved it!

Thanks Tracy, you guys were wonderful also! Hope to see you guys again soon!
Unique Stay During Antiques Week
Our group ( 3 adults one 3 year old) stayed in one unit! It is so well done inside and beautifully decorated, I particularly LOVED the record player and the amazing selection of records. The inside is well planned and we were able to stay comfortably for a few nights. Most of our time was spent outdoors at the antique show a few minutes down the road driving, and of course sitting in the outdoor chairs watching the sun set. Coming from NJ to this show and staying at the Flophouze was such a great & memorable experience. I would totally recommend it! Matt and gang were very helpful if we needed anything and full of info on navigating the area and the antiques show ( this was our first time). I can't end this without mentioning how lovely the landscape and the containers look from the outside, bring your camera!
We are so glad you loved our place and made the trip! Thanks for coming out and experiencing all we have to offer! Hope you guys are able to make it down again soon, We loved having y'all!
-Till next time :)
