From seven recycled shipping containers, architect Bernard Morin and his wife Joyce Labelle built this contemporary residence in St. Adele, Quebec. The home is the first of many to come for their new company, Maison Idekit, which will help homeowners turn containers into architecturally unique, and inexpensive, houses.
The house is 3,000 square feet with four bedrooms. The cost to build it was around $175,000 and gives container design another dimmension. Rather than feature the containers on the exterior, they are exposed on the inside. You can see serial numbers, dents, and corrugated detail in several places throughout the home. On the outside, the home has five inches of insulation that is topped by brown wood siding. You can see more details in these videos:
