Kam Kasravi and Connie Dewitt wanted to build a modern cabin, so they started looking at prefab homes. They then discovered that most prefab/modular homes would not work for them as they were too big to transport to the location they had selected, surrounded by redwoods (Santa Cruz Mountains). This made them research shipping container homes. An 8ft wide shipping container would work perfect. So they visited the Port of Oakland, and found exactly what they needed. And so the shipping container house was born.
