A Granny Flat Shipping Container to be used as a Teenage Retreat

Our client contacted us to help them with a backyard teenage retreat, they wanted a custom built Granny Flat Shipping Container. As they had space restrictions, a 20ft container was the footprint for the maximum area to work with. This granny flat shipping container needed to be robust and secure, so we added a few security features to the built as well.

Take a look at the video below to see the inclusions of this Granny Flat Shipping Container.

A Secure Granny Flat Shipping Container with a load of features

As stated, it needed to be built tough and secure for when it was not being used. Both windows of the granny flat shipping container has lockable drop down steel awnings that are easily opened up with gas strutts. The heavy duty steel personnel door is flush fit with a lock and deadlock keeping the contents safe. Inside this fully insulated granny flat shipping container you can find a split system air conditioner, ensuring the kids are comfortable all year round. A small but practical kitchenette allows the occupants to prepare simple meals plus has space for a small bar fridge. A hard wearing floating floor leads to the ensuite which includes a toilet, shower and hand basin. There’s enough space inside to setup a single bed, couch and small breakfast table.

The custom paint on the outside of the granny flat shipping container is the perfect colour to blend in with the backyard surrounds. Easy plumbing and electrical connections externally allow your granny flat shipping container to be hooked up to the mains without even going inside. The air conditioners compressor is also mounted on the outside instead of recessed in the wall of the container to maximise space inside.
