Inside the unique home in Feluga, Queensland made from shipping containers with a surprising toilet

How three shipping containers have been turned into an edgy architect-designed home – but you’ll never guess where the toilet is

  • An incredible architect-designed home has been created out of three repurposed shipping containers
  • The one-of-a-kind pad sits atop a hill in Feluga on the Cassowary Coast, 134 kilometres south of Cairns
  • One of the more quirky features of the property is the second toilet in the shed that is completely open
  • Another toilet lies privately in the home’s bathroom built in between two containers that are now bedrooms
  • The industrial-style house also has an open-air lounge, custom kitchen and stunning views of the mountains

Three shipping containers have been repurposed to create an industrial-style home with sweeping mountain views – but the second toilet has been installed in a very unlikely location. 

The unique architect-designed house sits atop a hill looking out to forest-clad mountains on a 4,198sqm property in Feluga on the Cassowary Coast, 134km south of Cairns. 

Also on the property sits a huge shed where the second toilet is – but when the roller doors are up the loo sits in full view of passers-by.
