The inside of this home made out of sea containers is extraordinary!

Claudie Dubreuil, a Canadian woman, has built a very special house out of four sea containers that cost only 3000 dollar per container. What she made out of them is absolutely beautiful. We’d definitely like a home like this, how about you?


As a general contractor, Canadian Claudie Dubreuil makes a nice living out of building condos and traditional wood townhouses. Unfortunately, building these types of houses didn’t provide her with enough of a creative challenge, because the jobs often came with limited money and safe, everyday designs. So, when it came to designing and building her own house, she didn’t choose the safe option. Instead, she picked a very special and modern approach to her new home.


Claudie decided to design a home based on metal sea containers. With this decision she didn’t exactly choose the easiest route. In fact, she encountered a lot of obstacles during the process. For example, it was very difficult to find an engineer who had the resources and capabilities to cut through the sea containers and to install doors and windows in them. She was rejected by four different engineers before finding one that was willing to work with her. Luckily, she did find someone who dared to take on the project in the end. And the result is amazing! Her home turned out absolutely beautiful and it’s eco-friendly as well.
