    Dauer: 17:03

    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.

    Designed by architect Matt Elkan, this home has been designed with efficiency, performance and budget in mind. The idea was to use shipping containers to create a wonderfully functional, healthy family home for a reasonable budget.

Great... How to get more folks seeing these videos? Someone has to be exposed to a new idea or image a number of times before they even notice it... I knew about tiny homes but it wasn’t until I subscribed to a few channels that I started really thinking about them as a viable means of living and being mindful of my footprint.

Dear Bryce, again another great episode provided by you and your team. A professionally filming and smooth moving of the camera/s followed by lovely music. I would personally love to see programs similar to this episode in the future for sure. Cheers mate. The house is well designed being sat in an environment like Paradise, even though there are some considerations that could be taken into, the price and the numbers of people supposedly could live/sleep in that house. I have built two houses in Sydney within the last 10 years, and I don’t think the $350,000 is a right figure for this nicely built house, it is way far from reality of today’s market, unless the price would include the land as well in that area which I think it is far from city metropolitan. And, the number of people who could sleep in that house, I would say YES if they sleep like soldiers next to each other in an army tent or in an army navy ship!!!! To throw that $$$ figure, mmmm, there could be some other reason/s ,,,,. I’m looking forward to see your fantastic videos for long long time mate. You are a great warm blooded presenter.

Wow! That's expensive. Even factoring in incidentals, ouch. Granted, I live in a part of the USA where you can get an existing, nice 2000 sq/ft house for $50-120K, and that same house contracted for $175-250K. I know there are markets where this would be a cheaper, more economical option.

Thank you for showing the blueprint, briefly 😆 The outside/inside living space is Absolutely Stunning!!! I would do something different though for children!!! I laid to rest my daughter 3 years ago..And children ,especially girls, Need bright cheerful colors!!! I would have used white and Turquoise subway tiles in bathrooms...Yet,That's just me.. A small kitchenette in in law pod. Because elders Love,to hit the fridge ,up in the middle of the night!!! Oh and an intercom system too!!! Other than my tweeks it was Gorgeous! PS would Love to see more with outdoor spaces too! Like really cool outdoor showers!!! I know it sounds weird However there are some really Neat ones!!!

I guess that they will add solar panels and water capture and recuperation, sort of like the Earthships homes since they are interested in sustainability. Using the shipping container doors is genius, it can provide extra safety in hurricanes. Houses in hurricane areas could benefit a lot from this. Thanks Bryce for including this home even if it not tiny.

put the kids play area in the darkest part of the house, give them no privacy or storage with bunk beds, make 10 people share one bathroom, i live in 80sqm apartment alone and i couldn’t stand having one other person in this space. this guy loves the sound of his own voice, highly controlling, basically a nutter.

Personally, I don't think that this home fits the theme of this YouTube channel, simply because it isn't a tiny house. If you had the space and the financial resources, you could use any number of shipping containers and build huge structures, but still they wouldn't be tiny houses.

Great idea , and the deck level and a water tank, the original look at the out side and the color commotions is great out side, and the number of ppl it’s fit is great, second level deck three level with seating capacity is great , the straight one level box from the top view , Three 20” one 40” containers combined is great choose , great original view inside and out is unique, open door to deck is wow and play room for kids , the panel on the deck under space brings a light through, frame kitchen open view is great as well , black combination is cool as well, nice simple and clean open bathroom, nice guest pod room with height is great, And personal bathroom is also great, Cost 359000 $ cost is lot for a house like this is heigh but the quality of natural value is also great,

i never understood why people use containers. It costs you between 3k to 5k each and for that money you could easily build a wood frame with outer sheeting. The difference is that it's much easier to modify, insulate, put windows and doors in and if you need different dimensions you can simply adapt it. If you want the fashion of container, then buy some old container doors and put them on the outside. Works just fine give the container look.

Chrome may be energy-intensive, but it is also (at least when it comes to stuff used in the bathroom) in use for decades in most cases and it doesn't look like it has been scavenged from a WW2-Era ship or factory! Seriously, that bathroom needs nicer taps etc. :( 10 people? Do they have 8 kids and if so: Do they plan to expand when the kids grow older? (I mean call me an ass if you want, but I would have probably had a nervous breakdown if I didn't have my own room as a teenager!)

Enjoyed Bryce previous videos, but this one is for the birds. Well done on the house, and the summary at the end. Personally I find the owner and Bryce are like marketing twins spinnig the same buzz words (marvelous, fantastic, wonderful, spectacular, love, celebrated, broading of the view, express the containers, really like, very intrested, honoring the shiping containers, establish a reconnection with yourself, minimalist aesthetic and lastely the lovely connection with vegetation from the informal seating). For cyring out loud, can people not just speak ad-lib anymore. Guys you can do better, turn it down a bit and tongue and cheek 'establish a reconnection with yourself' by speaking from the heart, even if you don't like something. Success. Feel free to give me thumbs down.

It's a beautiful house and they have clearly really thought about how they live within the spaces they created. The only issue I would have with living in it is the echo. I work with the elderly in a care home, many of whom use hearing aids. They would find the echoing really hard to deal with, and as I am going deaf in one ear, I would need to add some sound absorbing panels to kill that echo.

I love Bryce and I love this channel. But am I the only one who found the 4 bunkbeds creepy, a house designed to comfortably house 10 people with 4 people living full time. Maybe I'm overthinking but the 10 people could live comfortably in this pretty large house was said a lot. Then the 2 bunkbeds filled the one room. My grandkids love to sleep in the livingroom build forts eat fall asleep especially when I have all of them spending the night because it's a large room and they get to all sleep together.

Yup! I love the house for what it cost to build, the owner is still coming out on top in the end. At $350,000 and building with an architect oh WOW! the owner got a wonderful home in the end. Would be interesting to know what the land cost, etc; as a standard build house on land begins around $560,000 upwards to $799,000. Thanks Bryce! for broadening our minds on tiny housing, and shipping container homes. Cheers!
