Hi everybody

Today we will show you container house from Australia.

Toby Home shipping Containers Airbnb in Quindalup, Australia. This home is built from recycled shipping containers.

This beautiful home is great for smaller families or friends and is listed as a guest house on Airbnb starting at $180.00 per night.


The 40ft container provides for kitchen, living, dining and bathroom, with a 6.5m double-glazed low-e glass stacker door that runs east–west, providing lots of natural light and winter sunshine to enter the home. This gives access to a Millwood composite decking, which again runs east–west for maximum winter sun while giving protection from summer sun.

The 20ft container attached to the end of the 40ft in a T configuration provides the bedroom with a queen-size bed one end and a daybed with full-height and full-width window to the north, double glazed with low-e glass, providing a beautiful place to lie reading a book or gazing at the view, watching the wildlife whilst basking is some winter sunshine.

It is heavily insulated with high-set louvres for cross-ventilation. A 150mm composite panel external roof provides a veranda, as well as additional insulation and weather protection.

Designed and built by Simon Howard.
