Container Homes Perth

Shipping Containers Perth are experts in converting sea containers into stylish and welcoming living spaces for adventurous Shipping Container Homes for Perth residents looking for cheaper means to get on the property ladder. Also known as shipping container architecture, this novel approach to house-building has swept across Australia, thanks to the relatively low investment required and its eco-friendly credentials.

Because our steel shipping containers are designed to interlock and be stacked up to 12 units high during transportation, they can also be arranged in many interesting configurations, making them highly attractive to architects, who have embraced the concept and come up with many striking and designs. They come in a choice of 10, 20 and 40-foot lengths and heights up to 9’6”, enabling you to build anything, from a single container beach house to a multi-level mansion.

Put Your Container Home Anywhere in Perth

Perth is a fabulous city to live in, offering a host of superb locations to choose from. You might even find some spare building land near the jewel in its crown, Cottesloe, with its pristine white beach, parks and café culture. But there are plenty of other attractive neighbourhoods in and around the city to site your new container home. If it’s quiet, suburban living you’re seeking, look no further than family-friendly Applecross with its tree-lined streets and breathtaking views of the city. Or, for those who prefer a livelier experience, inner city Northbridge is hard to beat with its crowded bars and nightclubs. Wherever you decide to settle, remember that your shipping container home will require official planning permission from the local authority.

Container Homes are a Flexible and Adaptable Housing Solution

The modular design of Shipping Containers Perth’s units offers a high degree of design potential and the containers can be configured in such a way that you could easily expand your accommodation, as your family and income grow. New baby on the way? Simply bolt on a nursery! Noisy teenagers driving you crazy? Build a separate den for them away from the main house! Granny in need of a home? Just build a granny flat in the garden.

Bespoke Container Home Designs

Steel shipping container homes can be just as impressive as those built from bricks and mortar, and opting for them isn’t always a result of limited budget; it can also be a lifestyle choice for this looking to depart from conventional building formats and embrace innovative and dynamic design. Many are also keen to do their bit for the planet by opting for this green approach to housebuilding.

While many of our satisfied Perth customers appreciate the industrial lines of their shipping container homes, others have preferred to soften or disguise the look. This can be achieved in a variety of ways, including the installation of impressive, full-length glass walls and timber or PVC cladding. Naturally, container can also be painted in colours of your choice, using corrosion-resistant products.

Inside your new Perth home, you can specify everything you would in a conventional one and even opt for high-end fixtures and fittings with the cash you save on initial construction. Central heating and air-conditioning will be installed, along with fully plumbed, state-of-the-art kitchens and bathrooms. You might choose to bring more light into the space with additional windows, patio doors and skylights.

A Cost Effective Choice for your Perth Retirement Property

Perth is a popular city for those looking to retire and downsize, thanks to its wide choice of tranquil suburbs and comfortable, sub-tropical climate. Areas like Mount Helena or Mundaring in the East Hills would be good choices, as would Inglewood and Dianella in the north of the Perth CBD. Shipping container homes require little maintenance and their robust, Corten steel construction will deliver years of trouble-free service.

DIY Container Homes

For customers who are a long way for retirement, there is always the option of purchasing units from Shipping Containers Perth and converting them into a home yourself. This isn’t a challenge to be taken lightly but is certainly not beyond a reasonably experienced DIY enthusiast. Welding ability and experience of working with steel would be an advantage but you can always get specialist tradesmen in to carry out the jobs you can’t handle yourself. You’ll find a wealth of information to help you on the internet and Shipping Containers Perth are happy to supply the joining kits and other ancillaries you’ll need to finish the job. If you have the time, this is yet another way to keep your costs to a minimum.

Pre-designed Container Homes

If you decide against converting a container yourself, Shipping Containers Perth give you the option of pre-built shipping container homes, built by our experienced team of engineers in our own Australian workshops. There are off-the-shelf options starting at just $35,999, making them extremely attractive to first time buyers or those on relatively low incomes.
