Grand Designs NZ: Shipping container house proves ambitious

Disused shipping containers have been fused together to create a surprisingly stylish home – but you’d never believe it until you walk through the door.

Built on a site in Thompson Beach, 74 kilometres north of Adelaide, SA, the two-bedroom house might look like a prefabricated construction office from the outside – but it’s just hit the market for offers over $300,000.

Made from two professionally modified containers, the house on a 979sqm block is kitted out with sleek, modern fixtures and a large entertainment deck.

LJ Hooker managing director Michael Fenn, who is overseeing the sale with real estate agent Ryan Graham, said while shipping containers customised for urban living aren’t unusual, this one is ‘unique’.

‘It’s a real rarity,’ he told Daily Mail Australia.

‘People are building homes like this for themselves, but you hardly ever see them for sale.’

Mr Fenn said the design of the Thompson Beach container is ‘conceptually clever’, with the front area occupied by the living room and kitchen and the rear section taken up with the bathroom and bedrooms.
