WELCOME // to our dinning and kitchen. Last few days has really highlighted why we chose this life! Outdoor living, no shoes, food and people. ๐Ÿ’œ Although this would be epic if this was the everyday life here, but itโ€™s not! Weather and time play a big factor in how we live our life. When it rains we are isolated to our container or our gym. Itโ€™s not been an issue as yet but the rains are coming and we need to get the outdoor roof up ASAP!!! But for now, I will soak up this view, this life and our choices for less with more. #morewithless #containingchange #rainsarecoming #lifelove

LIVING // with good vibes attracts the wild! Itโ€™s seems that we are not the only ones whom like this spot and our home. The energy you create will attract those that can share theirs, in a mutual and beautiful way. โ€œBe Free of others Dramaโ€™s and you will Be FREEโ€ Acacia H.
Enjoy a beautiful Saturday night all and be well. ๐Ÿฆ‹โค๏ธ #simplelife #leavetheshit #natureishonest #contianerlife #livinginapaddock

SAVINGS // another reason we wanted to change to a container home on the farm is to downgrade to just one useful car! Itโ€™s reliable, efficient and just what we need for now. Since getting rid of our other car we have now saved ourself over $6,500 per year thatโ€™s not including fuel! But in saying that we are saving this, it can easily get spent on other things ๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ so Iโ€™m going to stick by what I say โ€œsavingโ€ and off it goes into an account weekly to our holiday @namotuisland Fiji 2019! Here we come ๐Ÿ™Œ #namotuisland #namotuislandresort #kitesurfingagain๐Ÿ„ #continerhome #holiday #thefarmgymsch

RULES // there really are no rules in life. If you want a trampoline as your deck! Then go ahead and do it ๐Ÿ˜› We go through life we so many โ€˜Shoulds and so many have toโ€™ but in the end no one really cares, just do what you want to do and have what you want to! But at the end of the day if your doing it for others itโ€™s not really yours! ๐Ÿค” #yourway #theresnotonewaytolive #bigorsmall #areyouhappy

PANTRY // We could never fill our pantry with food! We would usually use one shelf and the rest would be filled with useless things that maybe ONE day we would use ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ ~ So here is our new pantry for our new home. Seems to fit us 3 perfectly! Most of our food is Fresh and gets stored in the Fridge ๐Ÿฅฆ๐Ÿฅ’๐Ÿฅ•๐Ÿ‰๐ŸŽ. Suits us just fine ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ๐ŸŒฑ #freshforlife #containingchange #pantry #minimal #now

VIEW // over a week now in our home. We downsized life and indeed we are so pleased. Thereโ€™s still lots of projects and lots to do, but who cares it will get done! Enjoy the process not the RESULT. This week we are building our very own king storage bed ๐Ÿ›- looking forward to sleeping off the ground. ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ Although the last two years itโ€™s been the norm for us. ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜ž ๐Ÿ‘€ Itโ€™s so precious to look out the window at this view and Iโ€™m not just talking about this valley but my husband and miss 2.5yr old adventuring and water ๐Ÿ’ฆ the start of a prosperous pumpkin ๐ŸŽƒ gardenโค๏ธ. #containingchange #containerhome #loves #moretime #us #harvisonclan

FIRST NIGHT // We have lights, we have water and we have our home! Early night after a very big day, which meant waking up to this view lying in bed! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ. We made a choice to live small with big views, we made a choice to live simply but with big dreams, we made a choice to live without to live with more and thatโ€™s why we are so darn happy! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿงก Miss 2.5 year old loves her home, loves her bean bag couch and loves that we put our phones away in the phone box when we are all together! With this new chapter will come new habits and new healthier lifestyle choices. Itโ€™s not going to be smooth sailing โ›ต๏ธ or will it be super easy but we are doing it and thatโ€™s what matters. Poor Dali, was the only one abit out of sorts last night ๐Ÿ•, lots of new noises and smells here. Also we spotted a dingo this morning in the backyard ๐Ÿ˜ƒ. Once we have settled in I will share some photos of indoors, nearly all set up ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ.. #firstbightinmynewhome #contianerhome #containingchange #harvisonshome #simplelife #farmlife #thefarmgymsch

DELAYED // with two delays of our big blue LEGO container home, (stunning might I add) itโ€™s been a little disappointing! Our transporter has had one delay and then the second because the hydraulics arenโ€™t working on the semi. Fingers cross that our blue beauty will be on the road from the gold coast first thing tomorrow morning with an ETA of 12pm to the Farm. Even though itโ€™s been a little disheartening itโ€™s been a blessing. We have had time to recoup and prepare for whatโ€™s really about to begin. So hereโ€™s a picture of us The Harvisonโ€™s making more out of the good and simple. โœจโœจโœจWe run our own gym @thefarmgymsch and a small orchard of avocados ๐Ÿฅ‘. This container will be situated on this land so that we can really embrace the life we intend to live. ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿผ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ #containerlife #containerhome #thefarmgymsch #harvisonclan #simplelife

KITCHEN // wowsers itโ€™s real our kitchen is 90% complete. I think itโ€™s beautiful and the timber top they used is called Acacia ๐Ÿ™Œ! The sink is small, which is my only concern however WASH ON THE GO and no dishes at the end of the day! โœจโœจ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ #containerlife #kitchens #smalllivingroom #simpleliving

FLUSHING TOILETS // are a luxury. When we first decided to build our container home it was going to be with a compositing toilet and grey water system, but things change and now Iโ€™m perfectly happy that we will have a flushing toilet ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ#evergreenspetic #containerhome #plumbing #soon #10days
