Hi everybody 🤗
This house in Exshaw, Bow Valley, Canada is unique and interesting.
Six 40 foot shipping containers have been used in the build which were modified ‘off site’ which makes the build much quicker.
There is a garage behind the house which was built ‘on site’ with timber, steel etc. but not containers.
