I think I’ve heard just about everything there is to hear about PV14, the modern home constructed of 14 shipping containers located on Peavy Road in Old Lake Highlands. The home, which has outstanding panoramic views of White Rock Lake and downtown Dallas, including Boy Scout Hill, has been praised and has raised several eyebrows as neighbors watched the home go vertical.

It’s been called both trendy and tremendous, but while there was some negative feedback from some of the homeowners, many of whom felt the structure was too tall for a neighborhood full of single-story 1950s traditionals, after the AIA Dallas Tour of Homes the collective gasp of excitement over the home was well heard.
