Don't have the time, money or space to dig a giant hole in your backyard and fill it with concrete and water? Well, some crafty devils have discovered the perfect solution!
Now, a Queensland pool manufacturer has found a whole new use for shipping containers, adding yet another dimension to their already broad functionality.
This quirky solution to the summer heat adds a better-looking twist to a typical above-ground pools, and is the ultimate upcycling innovation.
The Shipping Container Pools product includes a fibreglass inlay, steps, a tiny wooden pool deck and an in-built filtration system.
The best part, is that it can be moved to your new address with you if you ever move home!
While an in-ground pool can cost on average $50,000 to install, a shipping container pool will set you back $20,000 with maintenance costs also significantly less than the more elaborate counterparts.
Its also a solution for those who rent a home with a decent sized backyard and long for a pool to dip into in the summer.
You could even get a few pals together to invest in one of these beauties!
