Shipping Container Homes Book Series – Book 53

Following  the incredible popularity of our digital book series – The  Most Influential Shipping Container Homes Ever Built – we  have decided to release a number of expanded  titles  for 2015 showcasing in greater detail some of the  best in Container based Construction from around the World.

Book 53 – Modern Contemporary Container Home New Zealand

Today’s featured Container Home is an Owner Builder Project built by Alex & Corban Walls with the help of Architectural Graduate Fraser Horton from 6 x 40’ Type 1A HC Shipping Containers at Muriwai Beach New Zealand.

The 3 Bedroom Modern Contemporary House is shaped like a capital letter ‘I’
The plan of the home allows two courtyards, front and rear of a central living zone. Bedroom wings sandwich this area and project out into the landscape.

With skills picked up from his work with his creative engineering company, Special Projects, Alex used a grinder to remove rust, a panelbeating dolly to get rid of dents and, finally, cutting the apertures in the steel sides for windows and doors.

The Wall’s recently sold this stunning House for $1.24 Million NZD ( apprx $800,000 USD )
