31 shipping container house - not tiny but glean your ideas from it !

This jaw-dropping Brisbane property, made out of 31 shipping containers, is a one-off bespoke design by experienced builder Todd Miller of Zeigler Build. The only other similar house in Australia has been built from five containers.

Situated on 706 square metres in Graceville, the spectacular home stands out in a quiet neighbourhood of more traditional Queensland properties. Only 8 kms away from the Brisbane CBD, it feels like another world.

Sprawling over three levels it features clean lines, open spaces and quality finishes.

Glass maximises natural light and a mix of materials, including the signature containers, cleverly used to industrial chic effect.

There are four bedrooms positioned over two levels. The master encompasses the entire upper level, with extensive walk-in robes and a private ensuite with tiled mural.

Outdoor spaces are spread throughout, maximising the tropical climate.

Other features include a mezzanine reading room, a pull out queen wall bed in the rumpus room, an art study, workshop, gym space, water tank and saltwater pool.
It’s solar ready and has been constructed to flood code.

"…I realized the world of business really separates into…two groups. The attackers are the entrepreneurs who are disrupting the status quo, trying to change the world, take the hill, anything is possible, and have nothing to lose in most cases. They’re driven by passion and the idea and intensity. Large organizations — and it’s true of Fortune 500s and it’s also true of governments and other large organizations — are defenders. These guys aren’t trying to pursue the art of the possible, how to maximize opportunity. They actually are trying to minimize the downside, and hedge risk. They’re trying to de-risk situations. Entrepreneurs can’t even think this way. It’s not even a concept they understand."

this is very true and is the reason my business is such a good one

The Oldest Love Poem.

The world’s oldest known love poem. According to the Sumerian belief, it was a sacred duty for the king to marry every year a priestess instead of Inanna, the goddess of fertility and sexual love, in order to make the soil and women fertile. This poem was most probably written by a bride chosen for Shu-Sin in order to be sung at the New Year festival and it was sung at banquets and festivals accompanied by music and dance.
Its translation:
Bridegroom, dear to my heart,
Goodly is your beauty, honeysweet,
Lion, dear to my heart,
Goodly is your beauty, honeysweet.
[…]
Bridegroom, let me caress you,
My precious caress is more savory than honey,
In the bedchamber, honey-filled, In the bedchamber, honey-filled,
Let me enjoy your goodly beauty,
Lion, let me caress you,
My precious caress is more savory than honey.
Bridegroom, you have taken your pleasure of me,
Tell my mother, she will give you delicacies,
My father, he will give you gifts.
[…]
You, because you love me,
Give me pray of your caresses,
My lord god, my lord protector,
My SHU-SIN, who gladdens ENLIL’s heart,
Give my pray of your caresses. (x)
