At Eco Home Designer, we are aware that families’ needs are constantly evolving. That’s why we try to come up with different types of Shipping Container Homes, to fit each particular family’s demands.
The SCH 6 is designed based on a great concept: a duplex. So if you’re a small family looking to make a profit from renting a part of your EcoHome, this is the perfect choice for you. Or maybe you’re only starting out in the SCH trend and have an acquaintance that is equally interested in trying it out. For any case, this amazing EcoHome does a great job at using each space to its fullest, while not compromising privacy or comfort.
Built with six 40ft shipping containers, this home has the exact same design on the lower level as it does on the upper level.
Entry to the ground level house is through the glass door in front. Step inside into the 4.8m x 7.3m dining/living room, which has another window in the back, giving it the feeling of depth. This room fits a large dining table and a couple of sofas for lounging.
On the right side of the dining/living room, are three sliding doors. The ones at the ends take you to the two 2.4m x 3.6m bedrooms, where you have enough space to fit a full bed, a dresser and a small seating area. Both bedrooms are divided by a 2.4m x 3.6m bathroom with toilet and shower separate from the double sink, for more privacy.
On the opposite side of the house, across the dining/living room are the 2.4m x 3.6m closet, big enough to fit all of your clothes, plus Christmas decorations and suitcases.
Next to the closet is the 2.4m x 3.6 kitchen, with built in cabinets and a convenient parallel design.
The last room of the house is the 2.4m x 3.6m laundry/utility room, large enough to fit any kind of appliance you may need, and a couple of clothes rack.
If you want to check out the upper level house, all you have to do is climb up the staircase on either side and enter through the glass door, once again.
All in all, this beautiful duplex may prove to you that shipping containers can be used to build any type of home, fulfilling the needs of any kind of family or families.
