Hi everybody

We continue to discover for you. Our container house on today’s tour is from George, Western Cape, South Africa.

Today, we will show you a completely different style of container house built in South Africa. Eco Coconuts, the name of the structures built on a pristine landscape. On the land are these great looking container houses and other structures.

If you want to stay in this shipping container transformation project, the prices are around $ 125 on average.

One of these onion-looking houses is designed for 4-6 people and the other for 2-4 people.

Container houses are built on foundations made of old stone bricks. Container houses were factory built and installed on site by Innoative Modular Concepts, one of the most successful container contractors in South Africa.
