A Timber Clad Contemporary Container Home in Quebec by Claudie Dubreuil and TLA Architects

Claudie Dubreuil, a Canadian general contractor in Mirabel, Quebec, turned 4, 40′ shipping containers into a timber clad, contemporary and somewhat eclectic 3 bedroom home.

While it was an exciting proposition, she had a her fair share of challenges especially finding an engineering firm that could cut the shipping containers and install windows and doors (she got rejected by 4 different firms). She did, however, find it easy purchasing the containers which cost between $2,800 – $3,200 (Canadian) which comes to about N 320, 000 – N 600, 000 each. Her full experience including images are detailed in the Houzz feature embedded below.
