About Building Our
Shipping Container House

Several years ago we had this crazy but wonderful and exciting idea of building a shipping container house, well our wish came true and it is amazing!

My next biggest wish is to be able to share the knowledge that we have.
So I have built this website, which contains many pages of interesting and helpful pages of information about planning and building 'Our Container House'.

To make reading this information even easier for you, I have bundled all my 'building container house' information from this website into one 'easy to read' ebook which has over 100 pages and includes over 150 images.

The ebook is in PDF format. (A PDF document is easily saved onto your computer)

About Our Container House

Our container house is our ‘holiday house’ as we had purchased a block of land with river frontage in southern New South Wales. We live in central Victoria so we decided to prefabricate as much as we could at home in Victoria.

Then we relocated the shipping containers to NSW on several trucks. We built our container house with two 40 and 20 foot shipping containers.

Our four shipping containers delivered ready to start building 'our container house'.

After 12 months our shipping container house was prefabricated as much as we could do so then the four shipping containers were loaded onto trucks and then rebuilt on the stumps that were ready and waiting.

Then our container house was rebuilt and finished with corrugated iron on the roof and walls and a huge verandah and steps. One day it will have a deck around it.
