Joseph Dupuis is a 29-year-old Canadian man who made something extraordinary out of three ugly shipping containers. His unique house is located in the wilderness 35 miles away from Ottawa, Canada. It took Dupuis only 14 hours to build – spread out over three month- and cost him less than $20,000.
Dupuis, an engineer at Algonquin College in Ottawa, made his home sustainable and eco-friendly. He powers his home with solar panels he installed on the roof. The most expensive bill he has every month is his cell phone.
This container house doesn’t look like much from the outside, but open the doors, and you’ll find a lavish dwelling inside.
Shipping containers are cheap and sturdy, perfect for a remote metal cabin in the woods. And they make for a pretty hip, urban space!
