This Shipping Container Shelter was built as a research shelter in far north Queensland, Australia. It is very basic but liveable accommodation, I would probably not suggest submitting plans to the council for a certificate of occupancy with this in the state it is in, but it was never suppose to be that anyway. It is a fantastic shipping container shelter or great start to a shipping container home Queensland, to have a place which is liveable for $16,000 in such a beautiful and remote area of Australia is amazing and if I had the opportunity I know I would be out there every weekend.. At this point in time we have not figured out the hours it took to build this shipping container shelter but once we do we will update this article, our estimate is 2 people at 8 hrs a day would take 2 weeks. Get updated when we add new content by leaving your details below,We promise to only ever send you emails directly relating to Shipping Container Homes. We’ve raved about Lot-Ek before for their ingenious conversions of industrial shipping containers into inhabitable modern spaces. In terms of architectural features, Lot-ek has created a system that defies the rigidity of an industrial shipping container, providing surprising flexibility in both size and functions.

I'm wanting a cargo container home built, but I want mine to qualify as a manufactured home.
I wish these prefab containers in these designs were available in australia, architects in Melbourne imagine themselves as hip up to date thinkers but designers and materials in the USA are years ahead of australia, we have taken on an architect to come up with a container home, we may as well build a standard home with the boring plans he has come up with, we have a property out bush to build on and these containers are 100% fire proof i really wish we could get a prefab container home, id buy one tommorow. You are given a large strong box - saved it from the scape heap - you imagine how people can live and thrive inside this castoff box and then allow people to modify these ideas to custom fit their lives into these boxes without the major “bank slavery”. It’s like a good pop tune - some will find the format of popular music limiting and will produce dreck but some gifted individuals ( oh, lets say Elvis Costello) can work within the limits of the format; be challenged by the limitations and can create something that transcends the confines of the formatted box.
Architecture is not about the box , it’s about ideas - shelter, culture, the human condition.
Instead, companies like Travelodge, Gusto Di Vita Coffee and Tuff Cube are what is realistic and sells.


This is a good concept, but if your house is made out of old steel shipping containers, it seems to me that on a good summer day you're going to feel somewhat like a hamster in a microwave. This is actualy not a new idea, we at the university of Leuven, department architecture, had an assignment like this 3 years ago (it already existed several years). In regards to Lot-EK's offerings, I feel that they would be better served if they would give us images that go beyond just their computer renderings and showed us some real examples that have been made more comfortable and aesthetically pleasing. Many of you have had the same complaint that i have about the LOT-ek project:witch is the lack of technical detail and pricing! Also could someone from INHABITHAT get in touch with LOT-ek and teach them how to make a user friendly website.I can't even access the left side column where their options are!!!!!For that alone they should go out of business,because if they can't get that right,what about the rest?
When I looked at these designs I thought to myself - "why do these modern designs always have to look like a pile of shipping containers?

It had to be built to withstand extreme tropical weather and it has proven to be very strong and sturdy over the past years.
Please note that this would not take into account the weather nor the tough location for this container home in Queensland. And with their Container Home Kit (CHK) project, they’re bringing shipping containers to the masses with a clever and easily-adaptable system for virtually every residential context. The CHK system comes in two different series- Compact and Loft, and boasts 8×8 floor-to-ceiling windows, built-in closets, and wood floors. A used container will cost between $800 and $6000 each, depending on size, age, condition and distance from the building site.


It takes far less energy to reuse shipping containers in a building than to melt them down and reform then into steel beams. The developer would then have to spend considerable money and effort in repairing them before use. A house is the most expensive purchase we will ever make, and I'm not sure many people would choose to spend their money on that. The main structure has been through at least 2 cyclones and the only thing which needed to be replaced was the cheap carports used for the top roof, now that a stronger carport has been used it should no longer need to be replaced. Lot-ek’s scalable system can accommodate anywhere from 640-2560 square feet, and comes fully equipped and ready to plop on-site with built-in electrical, plumbing, HVAC, and fully insulated AND furnished. The best part is its expansion possibilities- regardless of the configuration, it’s easy to add on another container to accommodate a home office (or more family members) down the line. One is in Southwark and another on the north bank of the Thames opposite the North Greenwich peninsula. I will appreciate any guidance on making this happen, such as, where can I buy the containers, and have them modified for my needs. The container itself might be cheap, but you have to take into account the cost of the land, construction, interior decoration as well. If you are looking to build a Shipping Container Shelter or were wondering if Shipping Container Shelters would be strong enough to last out in the bush though the toughest of weather, then this one in Queensland proves they are a great idea and very sturdy. When asked what was holding them back from going through with it, they replied that it was funding for the projects that was lacking.
