The Shipping Container House in New Zealand

Flickr user petraalsbach took a series of photos of the construction, as well as interior shots, of the Shipping Container House in Wellington, New Zealand.

The home is "built" using 3 shipping containers stacked on top of each other.

They are very practical, economical and quick to build with. We are producing many types of building starting from a fully furnished house for under $30,000 up to back packer hotels and luxury homes in USA in hurricane locations! But there are some traps to using them... we found them and have solved the problems!

Container houses a) cost a hell of a lot less to build, b) recycle shipping containers, c) are actually really easy/cheap to maintain and heat.
There are some quite neat things you can do with them.
