Woman Used Five 20-Foot Shipping Containers To Build Extraordinary Off-The-Grid Home

Slowing down in a fast-paced city can be very hard, as there is the constant fear of missing out. Whether it’s related to work, events, traffic, or even people from our environment, everything seems to be in a constant rush to keep up with the everchanging times we are living in. Under such conditions, experiencing states of burnout has become more and more common, and many people decided to move away from the noise of the city.
Choosing an off-the-grid lifestyle is not easy, but the peacefulness and cost-efficiency of it are both tempting.
Rosie is one of the persons who choose a shipping container as her new home, and she moved to a sanctuary in New Zealand, called Coromandel. There she set up a home comprised of five 20-foot shipping containers which look truly luxurious.
The tiny home is powered entirely by solar power with the help of 12 panels, and the house also has two 2,500 liter water tanks attached. But the best investment here is reflected in the stunning scenery, which only adds to the value of the house and makes you wonder how great it would be to change places with Rosie if only for one day.

If you’re a fan of shipping container homes, then this is a video tour you won’t want to miss! In this weeks episode we meet Rosie, who has constructed an incredible off-the-grid home out of five 20ft shipping containers.
