In this weeks episode, we explore this lovely family home which has been constructed using shipping containers. Named the South Coast Container House, this home has been sustainably constructed using four shipping containers and has also been extended to enclose communal spaces. At 95 square meters (1000 square feet) this home is capable of sleeping 10 people and has been divided into a main 85 square meter home, with an additional 15 square meter sleep-out made from a single 20ft shipping container.

If shipping containers are inherently cold/hot, seasonally, and (at least in terms of this one) require such modifications, why use them at all? Couldn't this just as easily have been made from recycled wood/other materials without all the extra hassle/cost? As someone who doesn't have in-depth knowledge of the entire process, I'd welcome feedback. Edit: I wrote that at the beginning of watching this. In terms of this one, it almost seems as though the shipping containers have had parts of them repurposed into other areas of the house. As for straight-up shipping container houses, my original query remains.

So CHINA, is undertaking THE GREATEST URBANIZATION HOUSING PROJECT ever attempted in human history, whole cities built 10-15 years in advance before public need, and Australia is moving toward...... shipping containers. hmmmmm. WOW, and look how proud they are too.

Its good they incorporated all these guest bedrooms into their eco home because as their children get older , they will need them. Two bunks beds in the same room only work when they are small. Eventually the guest rooms will have to be given to their kids when they are older and want the privacy. I see guestrooms turned into bedrooms in their foreseeable future lol. Other than that, love this home. I love to see one designed to accomodate families because they are rare. Unless you do something like this, like put a bunch of shipping containers together, most tiny homes cannot accommodate more than a couple. Even the large capacity ones aren't really big enough if you have children...too cramped...zero privacy for anybody.

The guy who owns the house is like that group leader on a class presentation who is confident to answer all the questions from the teacher. 🤷🏻‍♂️😂

Am I missing something? The main bedroom 2 people, kids room 4 people cause of damned bunk beds and 2 people in the guest pod. That's only 8 and that's because of the bs kids room that I'd consider 2. I could agree that it could comfortably house 4 adults and 2 kids. Or 4 adults and 4 kids. Still not 10 though. I don't think 4 kids in a room like that is very nice, looks like it would be cramped. Where do they get 10?

A lot of these homes he goes to don’t even look like they’re lived in.

I love the home. 350,000 is quite a lot of money...but all the details and the location probably have a play in all of it with the structural codes they followed...probably could do it for cheaper though if you did a lot of it yourself.

I live in South Florida Fort Lauderdale area with climate change and the increased frequency of these super powerful category 4 and 5 hurricanes like this past Dorian I feel its only a matter of time till one of these monsters directly hit my area and taking down my house. I'm looking for a some kind of a hurricane proof solution. I would consider selling my house and getting one of these for peace of mind. Anyone have a better solution?

$350k for a bunch of ugly corrugated metal boxes? Pass. You'll lose on your ROI.

Can I just say this is awesome. I would love him or his team to design me a tiny house like this . He has an open concept in the tiny house. How did he pull that off. Just love it. Design well. Love all the natural light from the windows/sliding doors etc . Overall just beautiful😍

I may sound cynical, but it always seems only wealthy people can afford to escape from the urbanized world, which is what their ambition is responsible for creating in the first place.

Absolutely stunning!! 😳❤ // did your bedrooms have doors? I didn't see any.

This looks about perfect for me except I'd change four main things: mine wouldn't be made of shipping containers; the master bedroom would be larger with a door and a deck you walk out on; the guest room would be larger and would include a kitchen; and the clothes in the rooms would be hidden inside closets rather than hanging openly. Outside of those four things, this house would be perfect.

Sorry...but that owner's voice & constant "whiny" inflections, are severely annoying. Love your show, Bryce....sadly, this owner sounds like a shyster salesman, on the con, with a really bad vocalization. Couldn't finish watching....lol

I really love the idea of shipping container house. It has so much advantage; cost, repurposing containers and durability.

Is there a way I can get this design? I need it to build my tiny house here in Kenya. I have been a fan of your shows for two years now and since my partner and I decided to move in together...we are on a tight budget and need a low cost home which will be permanent...

So, the loo in the guest pod has a "wet room", eh? A bit tough to shower and get the whole look wet, I dare say ...

This is the goldilocks house. Not too big, not too small. In considering building a small home for myself, I had been thinking 800sq ft would be the right size .If your brother-in-law is an architect and the king of built-ins. 600 sq ft looks perfectly spacious. I love the inverted corner window with a big overhang to cut down on direct sun. It's a great feature for a hot sunny climate. This comment was meant to go on the wabi-sabi episode. ESvid autoplayed while I was typing.

This home has so much potential. However, it feels cold and lacks personality. So much more could have been done for $350,000. I think the outside architecture is the most interesting. The inside was disappointing. It felt too sterile and devoid of humanness. The children’s room had no color or anything engaging. It was uneventful. 🤔 Have you seen the Julia Roberts movie “Sleeping with the Enemy.” I got those vibes. And, the bathroom looked like a prison shower. I liked the living room and sliding glass doors. The lesson for me is the containers are sterile, and I personally think you must add color, texture, and personality to warm such a challenging living space. Bryce, thanks for giving us unique projects to consider and draw ideas from. Your channel is wonderful! 💕
