This woman has built the house she has always dreamed of using four shipping containers
October 01, 2017
Everyone's dream house is different. There are those who prefer a house with several floors, or one with a single floor, near the sea or in the mountains, or ... made from shipping containers!
As a matter of fact, shipping containers are preferred by Canadian Claudie Dubreuil, founder of Les Collections Dubreuil, which is a company that specializes in the use of recycled and upcycled materials.
Wait! Before you say anything about how a dream house created from four metal shipping containers might be! Just take a look at the following images to see the fantastic end result!
First, Dubreuil ordered four shipping containers from a shipyard.
Next, the containers were placed on a concrete base to guarantee the stability and safety of the house.
In fact, these constructions are not designed to be precarious and dangerous, to the contrary --- they are as safe as a traditional house, if not more!
Next, Dubreuil superimposed the containers to build a two-story building. The exterior was covered with pine wood panels.
The inside walls were simply painted, so as not to forget the origin of the house as shipping containers.
The style is modern and urban with abundant contrasts of light and dark colors, metal elements, and wooden furnishings.
Large windows have been created to guarantee luminosity to the environment.
The house is perfectly functional --- there are bathrooms, bedrooms, a kitchen, and a storage room.
The company that Dubreuil owns and manages is dedicated to the construction and furnishing of houses made from shipping containers.
