Solar Powered 40ft Small Shipping Container Home

This 40ft Shipping Container home is packed with clever space-saving features. It’s solar powered, collects rain-water and can even sleep up to 7 people! When we first met Brenda Kelly from IQ Container Homes, she was living in a brilliantly designed 20ft Shipping Container home.

Since then, she has completed her slightly larger shipping container home, which is constructed from a 40ft and 20ft shipping container that have been joined together.Immediately, it’s hard to miss many of the similarities between her new home, and the (much tinier) predecessor. Similar details and colour features run throughout the new home, as can be seen in this very modern and well designed kitchen.

As Brenda says though, why change a good thing?Much roomier than her last space, the 2oft section of the home has been transformed into an office / spare bedroom set-up, which is packed full of transforming furniture including a desk-bed, and a small sofa with a hidden murphy bed behind it.


This impressive room still feels quite vacant when everything is packed away, but when required, it could become a busy hub sleeping up to 3 people.Brenda’s home is solar powered, and still has the ability to collect rain water, but this time, it’s all also tied to the grid allowing her to also draw from the municipal supply./livingbiginatinyhouse
