Annina and Pascal were inspired to build their shipping container home after traveling New Zealand and working on organic farms.

They decided to purchase a block of land and put all they had learned into action, building a small, simple, off the grid home from a 40ft shipping container which would allow them to be self sufficient, and then planting stunning edible gardens around the home.
