You'll want to watch this video that combines a cabin, a tiny house, and a shipping container. When put together they create an amazing 5 bedroom home that was designed to be perfect for extended family. The three structures work together harmoniously and have been placed around a garden oasis making this home a truly wonderful place to live and for the family to gather. In many ways, this unique home design model showcases how having separate smaller structures such as tiny homes and shipping containers can work together to provide more options for families, extended families, or even guest accommodation and the separate structures also provide additional privacy and separation.
There’s a lot to love, from the wonderfully built tiny home design, constructed from SIPS and with sustainable building materials at the forefront of its construction, to an epic shipping container home that has been renovated from a steel container that was originally used as a relocatable bank. This is a home design that’s full of stories and which is ready to create more to be told around the fire.
