You won’t believe what this container home looks like on the inside!
This Canadian man took some plain shipping containers and made a really special home. What is pretty cool, is he dropped it out in the middle of nowhere to create a completely eco-friendly, off-the-grid place to live. Who would imagine just looking at this from the outside that the inside is so incredibly comfortable.
There is a ready supply of shipping containers right now and they come in many sizes. Building plans are easy to find. You can find some good examples over at HomeTuneup.
If you ever considered a container home, you should consider this!
Joseph Dupuis is a 29-year-old Canadian man that made something extraordinary out of three ugly shipping containers only costing him $3,400 each. The shipping container house is located in the wilderness 35 miles away from Ottawa, Canada and it took Dupuis only 14 hours to build over three months.
Dupuis is an engineer at Algonquin College in Ottawa and has created a sustainable, eco-friendly container home. He gets his energy from solar panels he has installed so the most expensive bill he has every month is from his cellphone. This beautiful getaway cost Dupuis less than $20,000.
Shipping containers are cheap and sturdy, perfect for a remote metal cabin in the woods. And they make for a pretty hip, urban space!
