This Awesome Shipping Container House Will Take Your Breath Away

Sure, you have seen many homes that are made from shipping containers. These homes are extremely unique, especially that one couldn’t duplicate other homes made from shipping containers.

Each would have a different idea on how to build a home. But you will be blown away on how this shipping container house looks like!

We are even jealous that they have a very nice home like this because aside from having a home, they were able to recycle 31 shipping containers!

Yes, they used 31 shipping containers to build this home on a 706 sq. m. land in Graceville, a quiet suburb of Brisbane, Queensland.

Designed by Todd Miller of  ZieglerBuild, the house inspires a perpetual holiday feeling. It features seamless living areas, an array of varying textures and finishes, a saltwater pool and a lovely interior with interesting angles.

A perfect house considering it is made of a not usual structure like bricks as we all know the main material of building an abode.

We know that you are curious about how this shipping container house looks like. So let us take a brief virtual house tour and let see how many ideas can you get with this sample.

At the end of this virtual tour, hopefully, you can apply it to your future shipping container house.

Look at this place here. That graffiti wall art fits the concept of using shipping containers. Both can be seen in the streets and these containers are one of the favorite canvasses for graffiti artists.
