Lynnbrae Shipping Container Home 2021

House Notes – Lynnbrae Shipping Container Home

Built from shipping containers in 2011, this is a simple two-storey home with a pretty great result. It is built from 4 shipping containers (each 40′ x 10′). It has double glazing, solar panels, a (reasonably) productive garden and greenhouse, split cycle heating/cooling, and large tanks. It was built to the new bushfire code. Please note that the house has stairs going up to it.
