In McGregor, this is a new construction concept: a hybrid of conventional build which clads a re-purposed shipping container.

The two-bedroomed house has a spacious, north facing patio with a built-in braai and splash pool, set in a waterwise garden. The house has a fully fitted kitchen and comfortably sleeps 4 people in 2 bedrooms (one with a double bunk) and has 2 bathrooms. The master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom.

The Easy for Dayz Story

The home is called “Easy for Dayz”. It’s how the owner’s the brother would respond she asked what he felt like doing or eating - “I don’t know sis, I’m easy for dayz”.

“It is a special space; a treasure box of memories and a container filled with dreams.

“I wanted to fulfil that dream for my beloved brother and best friend, yet I wanted to build something different and sustainable which embodied his thoughts around how life should be lived. It had to be ground-breaking and fresh, creative and bold while still being respectful to the natural environment.”

Construction

The hybrid construction of the house is a recycled shipping container that is wrapped with a wall and then plastered and whitewashed. This wall gives the container excellent thermal properties that protects the dwelling from the southeaster in summer and northwester in winter. The hybrid nature of construction creates an inherently thick wall, which allows for deep reveals around small punctured windows and doors, reflecting the vernacular architecture, as well as creating passive screening from harsh sunlight.
The outside fireplace and braai area is an important sculptural element in the architecture. On the west façade of the house, the large overhang of the roof protects the deck creates an extension of the living space from large barn-style sliding doors. Steps lead from the deck, which includes a splash pool, to the garden

Peaceful & quiet town set among beautiful scenery! Best for weekend visits! Tabaldi's restaurant at Temenos Retreat is a must for delicious food and fine dining.

McGregor is very very quiet midweek, would like to visit again at the weekend to see if it comes alive.

Enough good food and wine to enjoy without being commercialized and touristy. Enjoyed the countryside and being “away from it all”.

Fabulous. 4 out of 5
