Beautiful job Frostbite , i would be doing the same if i had the money .

One small thing for your list is maybe cut back the long grass under the containers and lay some roadbase / gravel or similar for a few metres all around to stop combustible fuel from growing back for bushfire prevention. ( shipping containers have plywood flooring folks)

do you have leaf gaurds on the guttering to stop burning leaves dropping in the gutters ?

One of the bushfires i survived had burning eucalyptus leaves dropping on my roof from a fire front 2 - 3 kilometres away...

big thumbs up mate.

Thanks for the comments V&V. The grass under the containers in very short. It doesn't get any sun to grow. We mow all around the containers and cabin regularly. I don't have leaf guard in the gutters, but I have filled all the gaps between the corrugated metal so no embers can enter the wall cavity. Also all the flyscreens have steel mesh to help prevent ember attack.
