About the Property
Studio, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2)
Our upcycled, eco-friendly container house is quite a conversation piece around the neighborhood (we had a pretty good turnout when the crane showed up). Before our container began its new life as a guest house in our yard, it trucked pineapples around Hawai'i. Everyone who sees it thinks that it's pretty amazing.
It has a queen bed (+pull-down twin bed), kitchen, full bathroom, TV, plenty of storage, feels roomy inside, and has dedicated outdoor space to eat, drink, and visit. Enjoy plums, pears, grapes, and raspberries right off the trees/vines/bushes in the summer.
The Big Yellow container is comfortably nestled in our fenced backyard and is conveniently located between the Wallingford and Fremont neighborhoods in Seattle. We're equidistant from Green Lake and Lake Union, where you can kayak, paddleboat, paddleboard, and enjoy many of the city's top-rated restaurants and cafes. Nearby: UW, Burke-Gilman trail, the Woodland Park Zoo, Gas Works Park, and Ballard. Public transportation is located one block away, providing quick access to downtown Seattle.
The container is professionally cleaned between guests and there is a well equipped kitchen for cooking or take out. Coffee provided (it is Seattle, after all).

Why the Owner Chose Fremont, Seattle, WA, USA:
After finishing our yard right before we got married in 2011, we saw the container house in Sunset magazine, thought it was one of the cooler things we'd ever seen, and decided to get it craned on in. And then we redid the yard again.
The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
Staying in eco-friendly lodging, house was featured in Sunset magazine (we love Sunset magazine), really nice block and neighbors.
