‘The home’s exoskeleton of cuboid forms emanate in all directions oriented to capture the sheer beauty of the vistas, sky and desert-scapel,’ the listing reads. 

The inside of the home features ‘concrete flooring, white walls and minimal furnishings’.

Surrounding the residence are incredible rock formations, private mountains, panoramic basin views and hundreds of Joshua Trees. 

The listing says the home is ‘ideal for stargazing, horses and those who seek tranquility for their spiritual, meditation or yoga practices’. 

‘Multiple flat sites to choose from that offer both astonishing desert scenery and privacy,’ the listing notes, adding that it is being built at the ‘height of rare and natural beauty’.

Images of what the home will look like shows each of the shipping containers with windows on the end. 

The other end of the containers all come together in the center of the house. 

James Whitaker, from Whitaker Studio, told the New York Post that the home will be powered by solar panels and it will also have a garage. 

‘Each container is orientated to maximize views across the landscape, or to use the topography to provide privacy, depending on their individual use,’ Whitaker said. 

The makers of the home also said that though the home is up for sale as a private residence, it could also be used for things like art installations. 

The home is expected to be complete in mid-2021.
