Couple Turns Upcycled Shipping Containers Into Luxury Swimming Pools

By Joseph Maclellan

Shipping containers may be the latest fad in small-space living. But the most ingenious use of them yet may have just arrived—as swimming pools. Modpools, a patent-pending, husband-and-wife startup, takes used steel containers, trims them down to size, and resells them as high-efficiency backyard pools that can move and modify as you do. Think of them as kiddie pools... for adults.

A basic, 32’ x 16’ swimming pool will easily cost you an average of more than $22,000. But what if for a few bucks more, you could have a viewing window into the pool itself from its side, a hot tub, infinity pool option, and the ability to control the water temperature from your phone?
