For many, a mega-mansion represents the ideal dream home, but for Mike and Shawn McConkey, a shipping container was their ideal. The McConkey Residence, designed by OBR Architecture, is one of San Diego’s first shipping container homes. Three containers form 800 square feet of living space, and floor-to-ceiling windows make the open-air design feel even larger. A retractable garage door next to the kitchen is another thoughtful element (and perfect for those times when the stove gets a bit too smoky). Speaking of smoke, the windows and roof incorporate flame-retardant materials in the event of wildfires.

She brings the modern into the design with the window treatments and the rug. The natural blue color on the wall and the curtains adds a pop of color to the space.
When considering where to splurge and where to budget, Minneapolis homeowner Patti Wagner says the key is to make a list and update it during the remodeling process so you don't get carried away and splurge on everything. Her paneled refrigerator was a Craigslist steal, and the microwave was a floor model with a steep discount. A friend who was remodeling and needed different-sized kitchen appliances sold them the stove, hood range and oven. “At the end, no one can tell which items were purchased at a budget,” she says. “Also, be patient and don't be afraid to consider second-hand items.”
