For anybody yet to step foot in shipping container homes, you might picture simple, back to basics living. Cramped and lacking in style. Live Off Grid thrives on proving these misconceptions are complete hogwash. Our shipping container homes can be efficient, environmentally friendly, and exciting. You can also take them anywhere you want. 

Using a combination of texture, a muted colour pallet, exposed plywood and other raw materials, our design team have perfectly created furniture to complement the space, and provide you with a taste of luxury wherever the road takes you. 

Life is about more than just living


The world is facing a climate crisis like we have never seen before. Many of us are looking for alternative ways of living to reduce our carbon footprint.

Shipping container homes have huge environmental benefits. We take old containers that would’ve been used as scrap, and  upcycle them for a wide range of different uses.

Live Off Grid gives you the option to do just this. You can convert a container at the end of its life and give it a greater, more off grid purpose.

A life Off Grid can be a life of ease


A life Off Grid is about living your way, so we help from the very first step.  

Our entire process from order to delivery takes approximately 8-10 weeks, meaning that if you have your heart set on joining the Off Grid revolution, you won’t have to wait too long. 

If being used as a temporary home, often no additional planning permission will be required.

Do you need planning permission for shipping container homes?

In the UK Shipping Containers should be classed as a temporary structure and be exempt from any planning permission requirements. This is because the structures, along with caravans and mobile homes, are portable and are not designed to sit permanently. However, there may be special conditions in your area, such as areas of natural beauty, so always double check.

Are shipping container homes legal?

While shipping containers are generally exempt from planning permission, different authorities and circumstances may follow different rules and regulations. Because of this, we can’t guarantee you will be able to place your shipping container wherever you like — so it is important to carry out thorough research beforehand.
