It Looks Like Some Shipping Containers Are Just Sitting In The Woods, But When The Doors Open ...

Joseph Dupuis, a builder and professor from Algonquin College in Ottawa, is kind of obsessed with renewable resources. So it's not so far-fetched that he would start dreaming up uses for a stack of shipping containers like this.

What is shocking is that this spacious and beautiful home interior is actually inside that stack of containers.

He used the containers to build his dream home out in the woods. Although the location isn't permanent; the home can be easily disassembled and hauled around on a truck.

His home is incredibly self-sufficient. Dupuis says that his cell phone bill is his highest monthly payment by far.

The home does not have its own water supply at its current site, but Dupuis borrows from a neighbor and pumps it into the house from a holding chamber.

From the holding chamber, it goes into the standing shower and kitchen.

Solar panels power most of the home and he's outfitted his own heating and cooling systems that can withstand even the harsh Canadian winters.

After two years in his woodsy home, Dupuis decided to list the home at an affordable $58,000.

He's proven once and for all that off-the-grid living can also be modern and elegant.
