First shipping containers transported goods on a ship, then they turned into bars and arts venues and now, well, you can live in one.
Thousands of shipping containers are cluttering Australia’s ports – with conversions an environmentally-friendly way to re-use them as a potentially cheaper alternative to traditional housing. The process can be cheaper than building a house from scratch, and is as versatile design-wise as your imagination can go.
So don’t automatically think dull grey or white boxes: There’s more to container living for people looking for an affordable way into the housing market.
The norm, however, is the backyard granny flat or temporary industry housing, with a more recent expansion into bigger houses, particularly in rural areas. Sydney-based Container Build Australia CEO Jamie Van Tongeren says the company last year started building three- to five-bedroom homes. He says Container Build Australia’s homes cost $700 per square metre, no matter the location, compared to construction costs of up to $3000 per square metre in some cities. Both Fulton + Saloman and Container Build Australia take care of local government planning approval, which – despite initial client concern – they say has not been an issue. Container Build Australia manufactures its homes in Australia, while the others manufacture in China and import the container homes, which are then delivered to your address and finished.


Fulton + Salomon’s Ms Kerkering says an even more affordable option for a young couple is to buy the plans and build it themselves. Container Build Australia’s Mr Van Tongeren says all sorts of people are interested, including local and international clients, as the homes are cheaper and quicker to build. Approximately 20 per cent of his business comes from first-home buyers and he says it’s a great way to get into the housing market. Container Homes Designer Domain CEO Samuel Halsa says his clients want houses in a range of locations. Container Build Australia’s Mr Van Tongeren says the company has had a tenfold increase in business over the past year with “a big future” for this type of development.
The company has built mobile coffee shops for Brisbane, a smoking room for an oil rig in Karratha and recently a sound-proof music recording studio. At Fulton + Salomon, Ms Kerkering has plans for a budget retirement village with both traditional and shipping container housing. She says containers are also appropriate for affordable student housing and sees it as part of the future of that industry.

Container architecture specialists Fulton + Salomon founder Carla Kerkering says one of their first commissions, an elaborate Tasmanian home using 12 shipping containers, was set to be on Grand Designs. It’s also a quick fix, with conventional homes taking up to 18 months to build in remote areas.


Containers are increasingly used as housing as well as for pop-up ventures like hotels at festivals. We had to do two weeks’ of research, get new suppliers and it was so successful the Australian Defence Force, which we also work for, are looking at possibly buying a whole bunch now.
As of June 2014 it is still not finished and I would caution anyone considering ordering a cabin from Container Build Group to be extremely careful. Possibly your experience may be the exception and not the rule however customer service appears to be lacking which in its self leaves much to be desired.
If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. Overall the build quality is poor, I have had to spend several thousand dollars fixing issues that should have been dealt with by the builder and so far their approach has been to deny any responsibility.
These issues include; a window leak that left puddles of water in my cabin, having the door built the wrong way round and issues with the double glazed windows mentioned here, one of which was so badly sealed that it now has an ants’ nest in it! Contrary to what Mr Van Tongeren claims in this article, the cabin was not sound proofed upon completion of the job, mainly because they refused to provide door seals. He admitted as much to me in December 2013, having used their potential order as an incentive for me to build mine. They were several other promises that Mr Van Tongeren made before the contract was signed that turned out not to be delivered upon and overall I was left with the feeling that much of what he claimed was inaccurate.
