Woman Builds Amazing Tiny Home Out Of 5 Shipping Containers
I can never get enough of tiny homes! I love seeing people’s different versions of tiny home living, and the creativity that goes into designing them. Today’s featured tiny home is an off-the-grid tiny home made from five 20′ shipping containers that were added together.
The owner, Rosie, built her shipping container home on a 23-acre lot she bought in the middle of a conservation area in New Zealand. The tiny home functions off of solar power, rainwater collection, and a composting toilet.
Rosie liked the industrial look and durability of shipping containers, as well as the flexibility to add more shipping containers if she wants more room in the future.
Rosie’s awesome tiny home features a mud room which doubles as a utility room, which then leads into the main part of the house.
Sliding glass doors give Rosie a panoramic view of the surrounding forest. The kitchen is very spacious for a tiny home, featuring full-size appliances and lots of cabinetry and shelves for storage. Exposed plywood lines the ceiling and walls for a natural vibe that complements the surrounding nature.
The adjoining library features a wood-burning fireplace which heats the house up very quickly on cold days. There’s also a cozy living area and fairly spacious bathroom.
The bedroom has two walls that consist of sliding glass doors for striking, uninterrupted views! For a full tour of the tiny house, check out the video below:
Rosie explained that living off-grid in a way that allows her to be self-sustainable has made her feel very safe and confident knowing she can rely on herself and her land to get by. We couldn’t agree more – great work, Rosie!
