Shipping Container Home Book 169 – 5 x Container Home Townsville Australia

Today’s featured Container Home was built Nigel and Kirsten Hassle, along with the help of Builder Darren Finlay in Bushland Beach, Townsville Queensland Australia.

The Hassles new Home was constructed from five shipping containers which, through careful planning and design, have been placed to create the overall shape and deliver space comparable to a regular home.

It was important to the owners that the containers still feel and look like containers after we were finished but at the same time work effectively in the tropical environment. That means being able to withstand a cyclone, which this home most certainly will.

Located on an elevated block, the two-level home overlooks Magnetic Island’s West Point with four containers forming the upper level. The upper level includes all main living spaces, including a master bedroom and ­ensuite, a second bathroom, three bedrooms and a combined kitchen, and dining and living space that connects to a large timber deck. The original container doors still remain as window shutters and will be ideal during cyclone season.

A ground-level container serves as storage and a parking bay, and can be accessed through a covered outdoor timber staircase that also leads to the front recycled container door.

This is the 169th Container Home we have featured in this format for our Readers.
