After spending it’s life on the open ocean, this shipping container landed on the shores of New Zealand where it was transformed into a spectacular home for a dynamic young couple. After living in the container home for three years, a new addition to the family inspired a renovation project which saw the tiny house transform into a family home.
Kim and James have done an incredible job with the design and build of their container home. Completely council consented, they constructed their home from a 40ft shipping container which was chopped down to 30ft to be able to fit onto the section and fit in with local regulations. Around the container home, they have constructed a large deck and a wonderful outdoor living area.
The home is positioned above two 20ft shipping containers, one which acts as storage space and one which functions as a base of operations for the couple’s company, a t-shirt design and printing business. Ultimately here, James and Kim have created a spectacular work / home balance thanks to some very clever small space design.
Kim is also an author who has recently published a children’s book about an architect deigning a tiny house.
