Man Builds Stunning Off Grid Shipping Container Home On Mountain Top

There is a hot new trend in the construction industry: shipping container homes – which use steel as a structural element. Shipping container architecture has grown in popularity over the past several years because it is more eco-friendly than traditional homebuilding architecture. Other advantages offered include inherent strength, wide availability, and relatively low expense.

The popularity of container homes did not go unnoticed in the off-grid community. A second-hand shipping container has become an ideal building block for off-grid living space. One comfy looking shipping container cabin built on top of a mountain in British Columbia, Canada went viral last month after its owner published a YouTube video about his peculiar abode.

Built with three 20-foot shipping containers, the stunning off-grid shipping container home was designed by Adam Hellicar of Honeybox, Inc., a Canadian company that specializes in container box architecture. Adam used twists and locks to bolt the middle container to a cement block. Lashing rods enabled the two other containers to be cantilevered.

Adam’s project has a single goal, which is to showcase the potential of shipping containers as material for creating unique living spaces. According to Adam, the structure is 100-percent off-grid. His container home is equipped with 800-watt solar panels which generate electricity for lights, outlets, and a water pump. He uses a wood stove for heat while propane provides the energy for the home’s hot water heater, refrigerator and range/oven. A composting toilet is also available. A gutter and downspout system was installed by Hellicar to divert water off the roof. Any leaks from the top gutter are saved by a second gutter. The rainwater catchment system fills two large water tanks for showering and washing dishes. Adam elects to purchase his drinking water because he doesn’t have a filter yet and the well water is ferrous.

Hellicar’s home is mobile so taking it apart and reassembling it to another location is not an issue. It takes three to four hours to disconnect the sections.

Shipping containers are perfect for off-grid living. Outlined below are the benefits of shipping container homes:

• Shipping containers are cost-effective, and (depending on fittings) you may only need a few thousand dollars to build one.

• Shipping containers have a smaller footprint on the ground and it is possible to stack up to nine containers when fully loaded.

• Shipping containers are widely available.

• Shipping containers’ modular design allows easy construction using multiple “building blocks”.

• Shipping containers are sustainable because you are recycling something that could end up as a waste material if not reused, and can be recycled again when finished with!

OK, here’s a video:
