This two-storey home is unlike most shipping container homes you’ve ever seen. Its wood plank cladding on the exterior gives it a completely different appearance to that of the shipping container’s original look. The simple design also maximises space while reducing costs.
Entry to the house is through the 6.8m x 3.5m living room on the ground floor. In the back is the wooden staircase that takes you to the second floor. Behind it is the 2.9m x 3.5m dining room, with a beautiful double-height ceiling, which gives more depth to the room.
To the left of the dining room is the 5.2m x 3.3m kitchen, with built in wooden cabinets and an island counter, perfect for having a light snack in the middle of the day. The kitchen also has two windows on either side, to make for a well-ventilated space.
Follow the corridor to the left of the kitchen to check out the 3.1m x 2.3m bath, which has a toilet, sink and tub. Right next to it is a separate WC of 2.3m x 1m, and at the end of the corridor is the 2.7m x 2.3m laundry room.
On the opposite side of the house, across the living room are the two bedrooms of the house that are located on the ground floor. The first one on the left is 6.8m x 2.3m, making a perfect downstairs bedroom, with enough space to fit a huge bed, nightstands, seating area, a tellie, and pretty much anything else you might need in your bedroom. The other bedroom to the right is 5.2m x 2.3m. The door to this one is through the dining room, behind the stairs.
Now to walk up to the second storey, you can either take the stairs in the center of the house, or step outside the front door and take the ramp on the south side of the house. Take the ramp up to the second floor, and step into the 4.5m x 6.8m family room. This space is perfect for lounging on Sunday mornings with the kids, as it is large enough to fit several sofas.
Beside the family room is a 2.3m x 6.8m multipurpose room. Say you like to take yoga classes or dance lessons, now you’ll be able to do both from the comfort of your own home, inside this multipurpose room.
To the right is the third bedroom of the house. This one is 5.2m x 2.3m, same as the one below it, except this one has a beautiful wood veranda, accessible only through this bedroom.
Across from the multipurpose room, through the family room is the upstairs bath of 2.7m x 2.3m, with toilet, sink and tub. Next to it, there’s a 1m x 2.3m separate WC, very useful if you find yourself in a rush and someone’s using the bath.
Finally, the 5.2m x 3.4m master bedroom, with walk-in closet and private wood 3.4m x 2m veranda, perfect for having breakfast outside on sunny mornings.
All in all, this amazing home is sure to exceed you and your family’s expectations with its large rooms and unique exterior.
