Shipping Container Home Designed For Sustainable Family Living

In this weeks episode, we investigate this cute family home which has been built using transport containers. Named the South Coast Container House, this home has been sustainably built using four transport containers and has in addition been extended to enclose communal spaces. At 95 square meters (1000 square feet) this home is capable of snoozing 10 folks and has been divided into a main 85 square meter home, with an extra 15 square meter sleep-out made from a single 20ft transport container.

    When people in Australia say they face windows north to gain passive solar it always throws me for a second, cause in the US it’s south, lol

  3. $350,000 AUD = $240,205.00 USD + the LAND. Very nice design but certainly not budget friendly for people looking for affordable living. Interesting though and good information on container living.

  4. Any chance you have the floor plans to house home? … Would love to see them

  5. This is the illest container home ever. I’m gonna say it would sell for at least $300,000-375,000

  6. This space is awesome but not worth the price.

  7. Where does she keep her books? There were no book shelves in that ultra streamlined home.

  8. Woah just recently discovered this channel from the tokyo apartment video and now I’m instantly falling in love with you. I’m gonna be binging your videos however long it takes!
