If you’re trying to find your family’s next home and are interested in checking out a Shipping Container Home, then the SCH 7 is worth a look.
This beautiful home has everything you and your family could need, plus having the benefit of living in an eco home.
Access to the house is through the covered deck. Slide the glass door and step inside to the kitchen and dining room of 7.2m x 2.4m. In between both areas is another floor-to ceiling window right in front of the entry door. They can both be left open on warm days to create a nice breezeway.
To the left side of the kitchen, you’ll find two doors. The one on your right will take you to the 4.8m x 2.4m bedroom. This gorgeous room fits a large bed and a dresser. It also has its private bathroom of 2.4m x 2.4m, with toilet, sink and shower.
The door on your left, in front of the kitchen is the second bedroom of the house of 3.6m x 2.4m. This smaller bedroom is perfect for the children, or if you’re a couple, you can set it up as a nice guest bedroom, as it has enough space to fit one large bed or two bunk beds, along with a dresser. It also has two floor-to-ceiling windows, one of which looks out into the entry deck, so this might encourage you to turn the deck into a nice place to provide another great view of the house.
On the opposite side of the home, across the kitchen and dining room, is a 2.5m x 1.3m bathroom, that may be smaller than the other, but can also fit a shower, toilet and sink.
Right next to it is the 2.4m x 2.4m laundry/utility room, where you can choose to do your laundry or store all your Christmas decorations for next year.
Finally, the living room is to the right of the laundry/utility room. This 6m x 2.4m living room offers great views all around as it has three floor-to-ceiling windows surrounding the space and comfortably fits a couple of large sofas and a TV.
This incredible Eco Home does a great job at optimizing space, while still offering comfort and privacy to its dwellers, making it the perfect house for first shipping container home.
