Several years ago, builder Brad Gibson wanted big cantilevers as a standout element of the design of his new home.
He achieved the desired effect by incorporating four shipping containers into the build.
"It was a challenge and a lot of extra work compared to a normal build, but it worked to create large covered alfresco areas both at ground level and upstairs," he said.
The four-bedroom, two-bathroom home is located at 29 Tallais Close, Worrigee.
It's set to go to auction on April 11 with a price guide of $1.3 million.
Designed and built by the current owner five years ago, the home features designer finishes and fittings, from a dramatic feature fireplace to a large butler's pantry with room for a double fridge and a dedicated home office.
"It's semi-industrial, with a lot of steel involved in it, a lot of raw materials, a lot of timber," Mr Gibson said.
Mr Gibson said this type of use of shipping containers was a trend that was slowly growing in popularity.
"I've seen a few around these days, but it's not much of a mainstream type of a thing, more of a niche market I suppose," he told the Mercury.
"I came across them on the internet, saw a couple of them there, and thought, 'that's a great idea'. That was my vision of what I wanted to do at the time."
Boasting bushland views from every window, this contemporary home is set on a one-hectare block.
Mr Gibson said the property had other notable features.
"Out where we are, there's a lot of wildlife, plenty of bird species, and kangaroos around the front yard and nearby," he said.
While he's selling this property, Mr Gibson said he wasn't going far.
"Originally the block was five acres, and I subdivided it in half," he said.
"I've kept the new lot, and I'm building a house right next door, once this one sells."
The selling agent is Tim McGoldrick, principal at Elders Real Estate Berry.
"Brad is a high-end bespoke builder of many homes in the South Coast region," Mr McGoldrick said.
"He has achieved a seamless integration of building materials in his own home, and you really need to look closely to see where the containers have been utilised.
"There's nothing else like it in the area, it is truly a one of one home."
