The Ebeling House is a 2,600 sf residential home currently under construction in Bruce Twp, MI. It is made from 6 shipping containers which were set in just 6 hours in -7 degree weather in early Spring of 2018.
The Ebeling house is a one of a kind cross breed development using both shipping containers and conventional wood confining to make a roomy three room, 2.5 shower house total with a home office, open idea kitchen/living/feasting, a liberally measured storeroom, pantry, and a joined three vehicle garage with a workshop! Six shipping containers can make a spacious home!

We shared this house with you about 8 months ago. The container house, which was not yet completed when we shared it, received a lot of appreciation despite this. The final touches are currently being made for The Ebeling Container House.
Breck Crandell is the lead designer of the project, produced by Three Squared, Inc.
It makes us happy to see container architecture instead of traditional architecture. Because it is an important issue to use building elements that benefit recycling instead of materials that will cause problems for our world in the near future.
The outlook of the project is really impressive. The garage built next to the container house has raised the magnificent image of the house one level higher.
The construction container is an option to contribute to the balance of our environment and help reduce the accumulation of solid waste altering our ecosystem, achieving modern and tasteful buildings.
There are around 17 million containers in the world, of these, only 6 million are in use.
When we decide to build a container house we are refusing around 3,500 kg of steel for each container that would otherwise be very difficult to remodel because it is so expensive.
This type of construction is more respectful with the environment than the conventional ones because they do not generate permanent alterations in the terrain.
These types of houses are aimed at all those people who, in addition to expressing concern for the environment, are looking for a different place to live, with current designs and characteristics that have nothing to envy to traditional constructions.
The global container homes market size is expected to reach $73,070.5 million by 2025, from $44,768.6 million in 2017, growing at a CAGR of 6.5% from 2018 to 2025.
