If so,we know of a 355 square feet, fully insulated cabin up for grabs that comes complete with a heating and cooling system, hot water, kitchen, shower, and wood stove. It’s powered by solar panels and can be dissembled, moved, and reassembled without too much of a headache. Yes, you read that right. It’s a highly portable cabin….and it’s made of shipping containers.And it’s only $58,000.
Interested? If so, you’ll want to check this out.
A project by Joseph Dupuis, a 29 year old entrepreneur in Ottawa, the shipping-container cabin, located in Carp, has taken on a life of its own online. Originally built in 2012 out of three 20 foot shipping containers on a piece of land owned by his family, the cabin lived in relative obscurity until a photographer friend put some photos online. It’s now been featured on Huffington Post Canada and BuzzFeed Canada and viewed over 43,000 times.
The cabin originally cost Dupuis $120,000 and fulfilled a dream Dupuis had of living off the grid and going back to the land. It took three months to build and was his primary residence for a full two years until he moved into an apartment in Almonte.
Any proceeds he makes from the sale of the cabin will be used for future investments or projects.
Is this a door you’d want?
