Built using a single 20ft shipping container this is a container house like no other! Brilliantly constructed as a DIY labor of love using mostly reclaimed materials, it’s also unbelievably affordable! 

Shipping Container Houses can often look cold and boxy.

After all, it’s made from a cold metal box!

This container home, however, has been entirely clad both inside and out, with ceiling extensions and panoramic high windows that make the container look and feel much more like a tiny home while also being super insulted! 

Owners Paul and Cathy have poured so much creativity into this home. Clever use of reclaimed or self-harvested materials has resulted in a wonderful, character-filled house.

From the rustic iron-bark countertops to the beautiful reclaimed timber doors, this tiny house is packed with exquisite craftsmanship. 

This home is off the grid and capable of a simple solar set-up and rainwater harvesting, although the house is currently hooked up to grid power.

Surrounding the tiny house are lots of wicking garden beds, which create wonderful gardens amongst the otherwise industrial surroundings, while also producing fruit and vegetables. 

With Paul and Cathy doing all the labor themselves and thanks to some hard work in sourcing and reclaiming second-hand materials, this amazing shipping container home was constructed for an unbelievably low cost.

We hope you enjoy this episode!
