In this weeks episode, we explore this lovely family home which has been constructed using shipping containers. Named the South Coast Container House, this home has been sustainably constructed using four shipping containers and has also been extended to enclose communal spaces. At 95 square meters (1000 square feet) this home is capable of sleeping 10 people and has been divided into a main 85 square meter home, with an additional 15 square meter sleep-out made from a single 20ft shipping container.

RIP all those plants in dark corners.

SunriseTrilobite says:

I must say as cool all those tiny homes are, they would be just too small for me and my GF. This seems like an awesome way of having a not large villa or something but still enough room to not feel crammed. Awesome house!

Sprits Fal says:

I don't like this, the guy Bryce is talking to sounds WAY too much like a salesman. He says so many fluff words. Ex: the length it took him to say "there is no renewable energy"

Anthony Drouin says:

Looking for work a tiny home

Dylan says:

You should have a tv show

Anna Kartashova says:

Enjoyed Bryce previous videos, but this one is for the birds. Well done on the house, and the summary at the end. Personally I find the owner and Bryce are like marketing twins spinnig the same buzz words (marvelous, fantastic, wonderful, spectacular, love, celebrated, broading of the view, express the containers, really like, very intrested, honoring the shiping containers, establish a reconnection with yourself, minimalist aesthetic and lastely the lovely connection with vegetation from the informal seating). For cyring out loud, can people not just speak ad-lib anymore. Guys you can do better, turn it down a bit and tongue and cheek 'establish a reconnection with yourself' by speaking from the heart, even if you don't like something. Success. Feel free to give me thumbs down.

I find it weird that people who build these sort of houses never have televisions🤷‍♂️


$350,000 is a lot , even tho its nice.

Cf J says:

I love the idea of minimizing material for building and living, and it does not reduce the quality of the house. The family can enjoy the view and the outdoor space. What an AMAZING job.

Eloïse Terrier says:

Bryce, do you keep contact with all these families ?

Eloïse Terrier says:

very good philosophy from Simon =) I like it!
