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.
