The Milan, a prefab shipping container home | Nova Deko Modular

Australian firm Nova Deko Modular builds modular houses in a wide range of sizes, marketing the smaller ones as “granny flats“. Of those, one of the larger ones is the Milan, based on a standard 40′ shipping container. These photos show an upgraded version with several options not included in the base model.


Nova Deko made good use of the 29.7 m2 (320 ft2) floor space, including a separate bedroom, three-piece bathroom with shower, large clothes and linen closets, a functional kitchen and a stacked clothes washer/dryer. The bedroom is just big enough for a double bed with room to walk around both sides. The kitchen saves space with a two-burner cooktop and an alcove for a convection or microwave oven. Storage has been maximized with cabinets that reach to the ceiling.

In the version shown here, the kitchen cabinetry was extended into the living room as an optional entertainment center, which doesn’t leave much room for seating. That might be fine in warm climates where you can do most of your entertaining on the deck, but many people would likely choose to omit the entertainment center. The wall of cabinetry also makes the interior even narrower. While the aluminum and glass folding doors (or sliding doors on the base model) do keep it from feeling claustrophobic, greater use of open shelving and glass doors on some of the upper cabinets would have made the space seem less confined.

The Milan base model is 47,000 Australian dollars when delivered with 50 km of major Australian port cities. For other destinations, you’d have to request a quote.

Bravely plunging into the unknown, Herrle decided to build the house of his dreams, hoping to lead a more Waldenesque self-sufficient life of simplicity. Best of all, his beloved fiancée also was of the same mind, so Herrle set about building their future home, keeping the footprint small but functional, and using salvaged materials whenever he could.

Amazingly, Herrle was able to construct this tiny cabin of 11 by 14 feet in the woods for only $4,000 and in only six short weeks. The rustic interior is lovely (we love the colourful Mexican ceramic sink), and the house itself is sited on a hillside porch that wraps around some trees and juts out 12 feet high off the ground on one side.
