Hello, everyone! We continued to discover for you. In this episode, we will see a Fascinating 3x20ft Shipping Container House
The Tiny Shipping Container Home is a great way to live a minimalistic lifestyle. It is small but it has everything you need to live comfortably. It is perfect for someone who wants to downsize their lifestyle.
The Tiny Shipping Container Home is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint. You can live in a tiny container home for a fraction of the cost of a traditional home.
For the home-building journey, we decided to go down the untraditional route the design that comes up here is cool.
We wanted something that created a little bit of separation between the kitchen dining the study the living and then our sleeping quarters.
So we decided to stagger them to get the best passive solar design as well as a little bit of interest with the links.
The staggering of the containers so it looks aesthetically pleasing when you drive up as well with the three containers.
The adjoining factors together the total size of this home around four to nine point two square meters. You’ve got that air barrier in between the steel shipping container
The Exterior of the container
The outside cladding that’s also the same thing with the inside way of this container you’ve got the inside clad so you can also gain that sort of extra 17 mils of space to insulate.
So it’s like a sandwich we tried to push the boundaries with this project with our insulation to gain a higher star rating because in Australia you require at least a minimum of six-star this home’s seven points one so we’ve got the double-clave timber windows.
The bulk insulation in the ceiling and under the floor looking at the roof. This is a clever design. Because having the additional roof helps to cool down the space.
There are a couple of large tanks out the back collecting water throughout the year excellent what sizes are your tanks wave collecting around 30,000 liters we initially started with 20,000.
Inside the First Shipping Container
It’s all zero Finola hired joiner that’s in place, so it’s healthy for us to breathe and the finish that we’ve put on the plywood as well as low video C, it’s healthy for us to use the styling here is very modern.
We have a nice clean kitchen, we wanted to dishwasher just so people over time can utilize that so we decided to go with a half-draw dishwasher which is nice and compact.
We also wanted enough storage for pots and pans we don’t use many appliances but there’s enough storage for those bits that we do use I enjoy my little bits and pieces of ceramics and cookbooks.
There’s more than enough room in here to entertain six people for lunch or dinner brilliantly because there are thee shipping container house.
One of the first of the little joins and the containers yes so this is the first link that houses just the laundry.
And just a small pantry so we didn’t want to have to make space in a small house for these sort of appliances like a washer so we’ve gained that sort of space in these links.
The Next Shipping Container
This is our lounge of the container and study area my favorite part of the house and I can see why this is so cozy it’s so great we have the north and the easterly aspects so we gained some beautiful morning light in summer.
And then during winter it floods in so sitting on that couch with the morning cup of tea is divine but one of my favorite things is cozying up in winter in front of the wood burner.
A wood burner like this so quickly just becomes a central feature of every home. It heats the house well. In this home just utilizing fans, there is no air-conditioning.
So we only needed the wood burner and also during summer where we only require the cross flow ventilation so the natural winds call home and also the use of the electric fans on the ceiling.
The Seating Area of the container
This is the perfect space but I like how you’ve set it up that you both have your individual working space here. We do enjoy having our sides of the study area.
The Last Shipping Container
As we’ve mentioned was the storage and making everything as functional as possible so we decided to pick the bed up off the ground so we could have that storage.
This is a queen-sized bed that’s correct so within those dimensions that does just give you a tremendous amount of volume underneath it to turn into storage.
These drawers of the container are full depth for the whole depth of the queen mattress so for generous map storage that’s cool and that is a very neat drawer.
The Bathroom of the container
The tile working here is gorgeous, got a very talented Tyler being a smaller home we wanted to create the illusion of there being a bigger space so we went for full height tiles and also that wet room effect.
It is a very generous bathroom and they’ve got a flushing toilet here absolutely so this is just into our septic system with the use of rainwater.
And having it back to the wall with the system being built into the wall not only creates this really handy nipple but also makes for a more spacious area.
