This Off-Grid Shipping Container Home Has a Self-Sustaining Design

This off-grid shipping container home identifies what can be done to help offer just the right amount of space for living, while also helping inhabitants to lead a self-sufficient lifestyle.

The home is well-equipped with all the amenities of a conventional living space including a kitchen, living room, bathroom and sleeping quarters.

The 40-foot shipping container home gets its power from a series of solar panels positioned just off the side of where it’s positioned that provide electricity for interior living as well as charging capabilities for an electric vehicle.

The off-grid shipping container home is situated in New Zealand and cost the builders about NZ$115,000 (~$70,000) to achieve with an additional NZ$40,000 (~$25,000) for the solar energy system.
