Aussie Couple’s Off-Grid Shipping Container Home

This is the story of a couple’s off-grid shipping container home.

Before, they used to live in a 4-bedroom home with a pool.

But it costs them so much money, that they wouldn’t have enough money left over for other things they wanted to do.

So the couple decided to build a shipping container tiny home with solar power and water collection systems to live off-grid, debt-free and without utility bills.

This is the story of how they did it. And how just maybe, you can do it too. Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!

    Great video to learn from.
    I would place them opposite instead of lining them behind each other.
    There is an Aussie company which provides roofs using the container corners to fix and remove it. This creates a covered area in between, some shade and increases the area for rain water harvesting. This company is in the US, too. But probably they couldn’t do it on their location.
    Well done.

      Hi Micheal, We were wanting to span from containerhouse to container garage to create an undercover parking area using the Pod Roof system as it seems so easy and cost effective too but after many tries with phone and website messages left we never got any replies… do you have a contact for them? Thanks Cheryl

    With all the hard work this guy did, it’s a shame that an interior decorator didn’t help him out with the décor. It would look a lot better.

    Wow, the best and most comprehensive information, many thanks for sharing this and to see people who appreciate the real things in a life uncomplicated with a 50 year bank mortgage. If only they had an ecar it would be perfection.

    These guys are British ex-pats, not Aussies :-)
    They have done an incredible job but the video made me realise how much harder it is in reality than I had figured it would be, in my head.
    The persistence of this couple is astounding. Massive congratulations and thanks to them.

    Awesome … green with envy right now … where the heck did you build it … bought land in a small town in QLD to do this and ran into sooo much opposition before we could even get it off the ground weve had to can it… heart breaking when all you want to do is go off grid and ditch the mortgage… live a simple stress free life for the sake of your health.
