About – Odpod Shipping Container House
What do you get when two Product Design Engineers design and build a house? A house made from shipping containers!
One of the aims of the project was to build a large contemporary luxury family home without the cost normally associated with such a house. After much research, preliminary designs and a trip to China, we decided to use shipping containers (Intermodal Freight Containers) as the major structural elements of the house.
So why use containers?
– Intermodal Freight Containers are designed to be stacked together (up to 10 high) so they can be quickly stacked together to form the frame of a house.
– Considered a waste product at the end of their life, they are relatively inexpensive ($2300 for a good condition second hand 40’ High Cube).
– Ideal for a bushfire prone area.
