This shipping container home is an incredible home for large families who enjoy spending time together or spending time with their friends. The large dining room and living room are located in the centre of the house, which makes these areas the heart of the home, ideal for entertaining guests or enjoying some quality family time.
Access to the house is through the glass doors that let you into the huge 9.6m x 8m dining/living room. This space is great for big family gatherings, or inviting friends over. It pretty much fits any kind of furniture you can think of for lounging or having a meal.
The Master Bedroom is to the left of the dining room; a few steps away, through the hallway on the left and sliding open the door on your right. This is the gorgeous 4.8m x 6m Master Bedroom with a 2.4m x 2m walk-in closet, and 2.4m x 4m ensuite with double sink, shower and toilet.
Walk back to the hallway and now slide open the door in front of you. Are you in the mood for a movie night? This is the 4.8m x 6m Movie room, equipped for installing the latest technology in entertainment, along with a great couch, of course; all you’re missing is a bowl of popcorn and you’ve got your very own home cinema.
Out the Movie room, and into the first door on your right to enter the Study of 2.4m x 5m, where you can enjoy working comfortably from home while looking out the floor-to-ceiling window.
On the right side of the study is the 2.4m x 5m kitchen, with built in wooden cabinets and an L-shaped design for easy cooking. Beside is the 3m x 2.4m laundry room with a convenient separate access that makes it easier to hang clothes out to dry outside.
Next to the right, is the second toilet of the house; this one is 3m x 1.6m and has a toilet and sink. The bath is in the room beside the toilet. It’s also a mudroom, having 4.8m x 3m and a separate access to the house, as well, to avoid messes when coming home from the beach or from hiking in the bush.
Finally, the three large 4.8m x 4m bedrooms, each with a walk-in closet, leaving enough space to fit a full size bed or a couple of bunk beds, if your kids love having friends over for sleepovers.
Each room in the house is thought out to fulfil not only your family’s basic needs, but also those of your friends and the rest of your family, as well. This EcoHome is a perfect choice for families who enjoy entertaining indoors and look forward to spending time together.
