Wonderfully Designed Container House from Cape Town

Hi everybody ?

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

Our container house we want to show you today is from South Africa. There are not many container houses in South Africa. But we really liked this house. The house called The Pod is located in Gordon’s Bay, Cape Town.

Let’s talk a little about the design;

The front door of the container house that opens automatically and protrudes is simply amazing. With this protrusion of the door, there is a little relief inside.

The materials used in siding and patio are of high quality. The house really says I’m here.
It is very high quality and tastefully decorated, inside and outside the house. All we can say about this house is much more than a container house.

The container house can be rented for $37 per night via AirBNB. This quality is quite reasonable for a home that is also offered.

    Hola,Soy Santiago, estoy buscando la manera de hacer un techo plano en mi casa contenedor.Por razones climáticas en mi ciudad se producen lluvias y granizo, lo que no me permite proteger mi casa.Mi consulta es la siguiente,¿ que conviene más un techo de chapa o madera?, ¿cada cuanto se coloca los perfiles “T” o caños estructurales?, ¿cuánto debe sobresalir el techo en las ventanas y puertas? y por último para hacer una galería techada ¿a cuántos metros debe estar del contenedor?
