A 20ft Shipping Container can be a challenging space to work with when constructing a home. Thankfully, with years of experience building super-yachts and racing boats, shipwright Evans is no stranger to working in small spaces and when it came to building his own home he has done a truly spectacular job of, quite literally, thinking inside the box.

    This is, by far, the best use of every inch I have seen. Major props for that. This guy obviously knows how to build. My only question: with all of the electrical behind the fridge, how does he get to it when he needs to?

    I agree with the guy who did this video, the guy who built this has skills from building yachts and it served him well on this beautiful home! I have 3 40 foot shipping containers that I plan to build a bunker out of, might have to keep one for a surface home! Would love to do this above ground and even below the surface!
