Hi everybody ?
We continue to discover for you. Our container house on today’s tour is from Garopaba, Santa Catarina, Brazil.
Description from AirBNB
Our house follows an innovative concept combining comfort, sustainability and nature. It is located in a privileged place facing the sea and surrounded by native forest. The house is made of recycled maritime container, totally transformed into a residence, with thermal and acoustic insulation, air conditioning, internet, full kitchen, alarm, and everything else that is needed to enjoy this paradise listening to the noise of the sea.
The house is located in front of the sea on a large plot and surrounded by native forest. It has a combined living room and kitchen and a suite, as well as a covered front deck, side deck and on the top floor the terrace and the green roof. Everything has been designed to accommodate up to 3 people in total comfort. The land is wide and fully fenced, being able to safely house your pet!
The neighborhood is made up of whales (from June to September), toucans, aracuãs, rooks, hummingbirds, jerivás, ipês …
Containers can last for over 100 years! However, in the maritime transport of cargo they have a useful life of approximately 10 years and after that they are “retired”. We reuse this high quality material to build in a modern and clean way.
Is it too hot / cold? No. The container is lined internally with high performance material of thermal and acoustic insulation, in addition the upper part with deck and green roof helps in the insulation. Its thermal and acoustic comfort is the same as a masonry construction. In addition, air conditioning is available.
What if lightning strikes the container? Even if the chance of this occurring is minimal, nothing would happen, as the container is grounded and designed with strict safety standards.
