A crafty fellow, Joseph Dupuis, in Ottawa, Canada managed to convert three shipping containers into a pretty respectable house. When buttoned up the house looks, well, nothing like a house at all. it looks like three 20-foot shipping containers sitting in the woods.
The house is only 355-SQFT, has wooden floors, heating/cooling system, solar panels, full kitchen, bathroom, and wood stove. The house was built, 95% of the way, by Joseph with some help from electricians and the like. More pictures after the break.
