But now it’s a modern urban living space.“We can get creative,” Johnson said. “And get all the modern conveniences of a modern home."“This house is made out of four shipping containers,” Johnson explained.Johnson commissioned the home, deciding to experiment with the abandoned hollow containers.James Young designed it and it’s almost ready to move in.The home has come a long way from these hunks of empty metal. Now it has five decks and you can still see the original container exposed on the balcony.Johnson says he’s gotten lots of calls from buyers. He adds that with a view of downtown on a 700 square foot rooftop terrace, he's even considering making it a vacation rental. “We’ve had some interest in that but we’ve not made a final decision." As for the sticker price?“Somewhere in the neighborhood of $300,000,” Johnson said. “It has three bedrooms and two bathrooms.”But how does it "stack" up to other homes along Wyoming?We discovered a wide range of price tags. From a home on the block that costs $239,000 to another one that costs only $93,000 in the eight to nine hundred block of Wyoming.Johnson plans to also build condos at the Lone Star Brewery out of containers.“Based on traffic it’s pretty popular,” Johnson said.To see pictures of the finished product click here.For more information, call Johnson at 210-570-9170. © 2017 KENS-TV CONNECT TWEET LINKEDIN GOOGLE+ PINTEREST JOIN THE CONVERSATION To find out more about Facebook commenting please read the Conversation Guidelines and FAQs Leave a Comment TRENDING VIDEOS SAPD investigating social media threat of violence Boerne man witnesses Las Vegas shooting from hotel room VIA bus drivers tells nursing mother to "cover up" Arrest made in hit-and-run that injured teen NEISD releases submissions for Lee High School name change Las Vegas/Mandalay Bay shooting - What we know Video shows Las Vegas country music fans take cover amid gunfire Shooting survivors want more than prayers for Las Vegas #TheLateFeed: Violence ends with driver slamming into fighters More Stories COOKIN' WITH GRANDMA: Caldo de Res with Grandma Genevieve Dec 13, 2017, 5:54 a.m. Students remember slain Officer Ken Copeland, write… Dec 13, 2017, 9:57 p.m. H-E-B donates over 2.9 million meals to Texas food banks Dec 13, 2017, 4:39 p.m.
