A bit of a monster shipping container house this construction project is rapidly coming to completion in Canada. Offering off grid living due to solar heating,solar/wind electric and homestead farming. The owners of the home are Bill and Rosanne Glennon, constructing a huge 5000sqft retirement home.
Sea-Can Home is using 30 recycled containers as well as only two stories visually above the plains making this a very low impact large home in Canada.
Large central garage surrounding by three high shipping container walls.
5 Bedroom home, complete with large sitting room. Once finished no doubt the envy of the neighbours.
Shipping container stacked on its end isn’t a statement of versatility of shipping container architecture but is actually a lift shaft for access to the multiple levels in the building.
The lower level is going to be consealed with the upper levels being insulated and stucco finished making the home blend into its surroundings to almost looking like a normally constructed home.
Insulated roof to R80 will also leave a space for a solar heating system to be adapted for the home. With such a large space available a solar array and wind turbine will also be added for the electrical needs of the property.
