How are Container Cabins Different than Container Homes?

Container cabins are different from container homes in a few ways. While both types of structures use repurposed shipping containers, container homes are designed for full-time living and are more comfortable and stylish. Container cabins are usually more basic and offer housing and storage for hunters such as safety gun cabinets and racks for a safe secure way to store equipment. All space should be maximized for hunting gear safety and storage providing a more rustic experience than container homes.

Hunting Container Applications

There are an infinite number of ways to configure your cabin to fit your needs. Below we have listed a few.

Rooftop Huning: Elevate your hunting experience by installing a ladder-accessible hunting blind on the roof of your cabin. Imagine the convenience of enjoying your morning coffee in your cabin and being just minutes away from your blind. Maximize your hunting success with this elevated setup right above your cabin.

Rooftop hunting blind additions can include stairs, railings, safety grating flooring, and camouflage paint.

Storage Container Cabin – Shipping Container for Storing Hunting Supplies: Consider a container designed to store all your hunting supplies organized and within reach. Design it for a one-stop, effective way to provide ample space and protection for your hunting gear, firearms, ammunition, sleeping bags and even an area to store an ATV or Side by Side UTV.

Fish & Wild Game Cleaning Station Container: Upgrade your shipping container into the ultimate cleaning station. Some options include utility sinks, cutting boards, and tables designed for all your cleaning, skinning, and butcher needs. With ample storage for your knives, and cleaning products, you’ll have everything you need at your fingertips. Choose stainless steel tables that can be easily unlocked and rolled outdoors or stay stable indoors, providing convenience for those late-night cleaning sessions.

Further enhancements can include a refrigerator/freezer to store your game properly and a shower stall to get cleaned up after a long day. Let us help you design a one-of-a-kind hunter cleaning station container.


There are many benefits to customizing a shipping container into a hunting cabin; below are just a few:

Durability and Weather Resistant: Containers are built to withstand harsh environments and last for years. Wind and watertight containers protect against rising waters; therefore, they will not flood during storms. Proper insulation and HVAC can also be installed to protect against extreme heat or cold conditions to make your hunting experience comfortable.

Low Maintenance and Less Cleaning: When built and set up correctly, containers are durable so there is less ongoing maintenance than in a traditional home. Plus, with their compact size there is less cleaning and upkeep.

Safety While You Are Away: Shipping containers are built with thick steel and heavy safety doors and locks which makes them a great safe option on your property. Steel window shutters and a hideaway cabin entrance door and window are a few security options that will keep your hunting equipment safe. Cameras, lighting, and alarm features can also be added for security and safety during the off season.

Affordability: When budget is a concern customize your shipping container hunting cabin to fit your needs from rough and rugged to a rustic sophistication for your personal hunting retreat.

Sustainability: Made from recycled materials, and designed with environmental safety in mind, they are designed for maximum energy efficiency, making them great for the environment.

Mobility and Ease of Transport: With their modular design, they can be expanded and re-configured for different uses to fit your needs. This can help to reduce land disruption from having a large cabin or structure in one spot. You choose the location and move as needed.

Self-Sustaining for Off-The-Grid: Off-the-grid can be a challenge and somewhat expensive, so decide how sustainable you want, or must be, how often, and for how long will you be Off-The-Grid? Things to keep in mind are solar panels, generators, water collection and the reuse of grey water for non-potable uses such as toilet flushing, alternative heat source, cooking, food storage and composting toilets are few of many things to consider. Rest assure we can help you with all your needs.

Fully Customizable: With different types of hunting comes different needs for the hunter, but it can be tricky when modifying a container. That’s where we come in, our fabricators have the necessary tools and experience to customize your container to fit your needs.

Comfortable Shelter: Whether you are in South Texas or the wilderness in Wyoming shipping container hunting cabins provide shelter and can have all the comforts of home.
