Her Double Shipping Container Home in Tasmania

This post contains affiliate links.

This is Germaine’s double shipping container home in Tasmania that she had built after her divorce. Her sons live in the “big house” next door, and she has this private space built over an existing carport. It’s built out of two containers set at a 90-degree angle, with a spacious covered porch in the middle where she loves to entertain.

Speaking of entertaining, Germaine requested a large kitchen with full-sized appliances and plenty of bench space so she can prepare delicious meals. Her bathroom has a walk-in shower and flushing toilet, and she has a cozy bedroom with a walk-in closet! What a fun space to live.

  • After a divorce, Germaine decided to build a small space that could be hers without a massive mortgage.
  • Situated on a steep section with breathtaking city views, this home is truly impressive.
  • One container contains the bedroom, bathroom, and a walk-in-style wardrobe, while the other houses the kitchen and living room.
  • The two containers are connected by an undercover area, creating a spacious outdoor lounge and dining space.
  • The exterior retains an industrial look with exposed painted shipping numbers, while the interior offers a modern, cozy design.
