Jennifer purchased 42 acres on the Fleurieu Peninsula in Australia back in 2016. At the time it was a complete blank slate, and she’s added paddocks, a rainwater catchment system, a solar array, a vegetable garden, trees and her amazing industrial shipping container home!
She even went so far as to get her home and alternative systems completely “council-approved,” meaning they meet the local building regulations and she shouldn’t have any headaches regarding her property. She owns all kinds of animals including horses, sheep, goats and alpacas.
On her blog, Tiny House Sustainable Living, she’s writing weekly updates about her journey: From dealing with the council to choosing her design to stewarding her property and animals. There’s so much we can learn from her, but first, enjoy the tour of her tiny home!

She Turned An Industrial Shipping Container Into A Farmhouse Cottage!
Her kitchen includes a larger refrigerator, convection oven, and stove top.
A roll-away island is the way to go in a little kitchen. I have one and use it all the time for more counter space.
Here’s her four-burner cooktop and a modern range hood.
The wood-burning stove keeps her place toasty.
She also has a mini-split system for heating & cooling.
Here’s her couch and work station.
The bathroom has a washer and dryer unit, along with with a rainwater shower head!
I’m partial to the pipe-and-wood shelving because I put it in my own home!
Here’s the first bedroom.
Lots of lovely horse decor and some built-in storage.
And here is room #2 with red accents.
A glimpse of her rainwater catchment system and her solar array.
Those large windows really help open the place up.
Industrial decor is a perfect complement to shipping containers.
Sheep! Just because they’re cute.
