Company History

Backcountry started its operations with a 20-foot shipping container. Jon, one of the founders, was an aeronautical engineer who was intrigued by the tiny home movement. He dabbled with his first 20-foot container, adding in his engineering skills and put the container home online.

It was an instant hit, leading to the rise of Backcountry Containers.

He went on to build a container home for his sister, which led to his design being featured on Tiny House, Big Living.

Interest in the container homes being built by the company continued to increase, leading to their own show, called “Containables,” which was featured on the DIY Network.

Rapid popularity and growth have led to the container home company offering five standard models and also working on commercial container projects. The company aims to offer cost-effective home solutions for anyone who wants to enjoy tiny living in a container home.

While the company recommends working with a local contractor to complete the build, they do have preferred regional contractors that are familiar with these homes and the process for installing them.

Working with a preferred contractor will help ensure that you receive the quality and craftsmanship you expect for your container home project.

Their general contractors can help with the permitting process and other aspects of the build.

Potential owners who want to fully embrace their property and leverage its unique features can opt for a custom build if the standard models do not meet their needs. The process begins with filling out a form that asks a series of questions:

  • Container home budget
  • Do you require financing
  • Do you have land to build on
  • Location
  • Other questions

Backcountry Containers have Texas prefab container homes that they can ship around the country. Containers are brand new or undergo “one trip,” so they’re new or “like new” before they’re prefabricated into the beautiful tiny homes they sell now.
