Shipping Containers Home

How would you like to live in shipping containers? Might sound crazy, but the house pictured is just that -- seven recycled steel shipping containers, recycled to create one eco-friendly home. Bernard Morin and Joyce Labelle, an architect and his wife in Ste. Adele, Quebec, built this 3,000 square foot home for only $175,000 -- saving them about $225,000. And now Morin hopes to make a business out of the design. The home, built in a Cubist style to accommodate the sloping setting, is resistant to rust, mold, termites and fire.
Is this the wave of the future? Would you buy one?
