IQ Container Homes pride ourselves on being able to take one of the world’s strongest, most durable structures, a corten steel shipping container, and converting it into a high-quality, practical, environmentally responsible small home, bach or unit.

Containers are recognised as earthquake, hurricane and fire resistant. We have liaised extensively with local councils to ensure our designs meet and in many cases exceed building code requirements ensuring you are getting a structurally sound, watertight, warm, energy efficient home that will last for many years.

Built in features such as photovoltaic systems and rainwater harvesting not only reduce long-term running costs but ensure you are doing your bit for the environment.

Our homes are suitable for cost effective timber pile foundations, making them an ideal solution for sloping sites.
