I’m always amazed at how people can turn shipping containers, hard, cold metal boxes, into some of the most beautiful, warm and welcoming homes. That’s exactly what this young couple from Victoria have done, transforming 3 20ft shipping containers into a wonderful, functional house.

Everywhere you look, Richard and Amy have packed their container home with great small space design ideas, ensuring that within the small footprint of the shipping containers, there is a tremendous amount of home and living space. Just as much thought has been put into the build of the home, with some great choices in materials and construction techniques making this a high performing and well insulating container home.

This home utilises a grid tied solar system, taking advantage of the extreme Australian sun. It also collects all it’s own water. With another family member on the way, this is sure to be a wonderful home for this young family. I hope you enjoy this video tour!

  1. Sad. Get a good paying career find a real house and let these fools smell each others shit all day long everytime someone has to take a dump.😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

  2. Well thought out, wonderfully designed. The pass thru from one to another is ingenious. Absolutely love it!
    Congratulations on the new addition.

  3. If you like container bldgs check the one East of orange grovestand ? Griffin road * Davie FL. And punch a Nazi while you're at it.

  4. its a great advantage against the bugs and spiders in australia, that place is just crawling, a house like that cannot be burrowed into, perfect for down under

  5. Apart from the bed and the built-in sofa, I love this house. It would be nice to have another room. I love how environmentally friendly it is.

  6. I pray that if God blesses me with children I can leave them an inheritance (land, cash, investments). Don't be mad at her parents for making smart financial choices.

  7. having worked security for nearly a decade I can assure you that a house is far from the last thing people think of when they see a shipping container

  8. A shipping container wasnt that big, why do you need so many window and big entrance? You can get sunlight from the top. They try to make it look like a house is complete wrong.

  9. Next step, make this a shippable design: windows like to break, walls crack, insulation has to piece out so the load is not oversized! But how cool would that be?

  10. It's rude to ask a friend how much, but a crucial question for anybody considering doing this for themselves. Thank you! $ 97,570.50 U.S.
