Would you believe this house is made entirely out of shipping containers?


It is. And the genius behind the idea is Claudie Dubreuil, from Quebec, Canada.

The real estate developer owns Collections Dubreuil and prides herself on the use of raw, eco-friendly material and sustainable building.

The maison conteneur – or container house – started out as three large metallic containers, which Dubreuil ordered from an engineering firm. Within two weeks, the containers had been delivered and the builders managed to erect the frame of the house in just one day.


And it went from looking like this:

Somehow, she managed to squeeze two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living room, dining room, kitchen and rooftop terrace into three cargo containers. And she still has extra space. And 9ft ceilings.
