In this weeks episode, we explore this lovely family home which has been constructed using shipping containers. Named the South Coast Container House, this home has been sustainably constructed using four shipping containers and has also been extended to enclose communal spaces. At 95 square meters (1000 square feet) this home is capable of sleeping 10 people and has been divided into a main 85 square meter home, with an additional 15 square meter sleep-out made from a single 20ft shipping container.

+ Emma Vicktorius Bryce definitely has a way with People! He exemplifies the cordial manner we should all have when meeting a stranger! It's honestly celebrating people for their positive contribution to society- we need more avenues like this for pre-teens, Teens & College aged folks to really showcase their skills!

Take a drink every time the owner says externally 😂

Crafty Loops says:

My normal bricks and mortar house is a teeny tiny 69sqm (742sq ft). So this space is simply beautiful. I'd gladly give up my teeny house to live in shipping containers like this, teehee.

Why those houses can't be designed to collecting rain water ?!!

What an arse

RGP B says:

This channel and its message are so fantastic!

DreamingFlurry says:

Chrome may be energy-intensive, but it is also (at least when it comes to stuff used in the bathroom) in use for decades in most cases and it doesn't look like it has been scavenged from a WW2-Era ship or factory! Seriously, that bathroom needs nicer taps etc. 🙁

10 people? Do they have 8 kids and if so: Do they plan to expand when the kids grow older? (I mean call me an ass if you want, but I would have probably had a nervous breakdown if I didn't have my own room as a teenager!)

Do you know what can also fit 10 people comfortably?
A car
