Off grid container house offering its own electricity and water supply

This is a very modern container house using two containers. They are slightly offset to allow the formation of a shower wet room/ kitchen while at the other container a bedroom “nook”. Functional its also made good use of the windows and outside space with a deck area.

Water supply wise its got a very interesting rainwater gathering system that actually involves a tilted bed of stones on the roof, the bed harvests the rainwater into two plastic barrels to supply all the water needs of the house. At the same time the roof also has some solar panels added for power and a moss type plant insulation system which is currently being tested. A practical house mainly made from recycled materials.
