Home Built from Shipping Containers
It's hard to tell from the outside, but this beautiful home in Quebec was built with seven recycled shipping containers. This 3,000 square foot home cost just $175,000 to build and was designed by Bernard Morin and Joyce Labelle from Maison Idekit Homes. They specialize in building homes from a shipping container base and claim that the building time can be reduced to as little as a week and save a significant amount of money. A chalet built with just three shipping containers runs about $45,000 and can be customized to the home-owner's specifications.
