Kaloorup Shipping Container House, Australia

9x40ft containers home

The Kaloorup Shipping Container House is a project that Steve Hick is undertaking in the south west of Western Australia. Nine 40ft containers are being used for the structure. Recycling where possible using native hardwoods (Jarrah) for cladding and decking.  The cladding and darker tones are being used to help the house blend in with the surrounding bushland. Large double glazed glass panels are being used where possible to retain warmth through the cooler months and secondary colourbond roofing to act as a second skin protecting the inhabitants from unwanted heat transfer in summer. The project is the first legal container house structure in the southern capes Margaret River area and is close to completion.
