Shipping Container Homes Book Series – Book 55

Following  the incredible popularity of our digital book series – The  Most Influential Shipping Container Homes Ever Built – we  have decided to release a number of expanded  titles  for 2015 showcasing in greater detail some of the  best in Container based Construction from around the World.

Book 55 – Unique Solar Powered Off Grid Shipping Container Cabin

Jason Rioux of Sea Container Cabins has built this Unique 1479 sqft Solar Powered Off Grid Shipping Container Cabin as a Summer Home for his Family near Bobcaygeon, Ontario.

The Hub and Spoke Design ( all the containers radiate out from a large octagonal central living room ) uses 7 x 20’ Type 1A HC Containers and Post-and-Beam Hybrid Elements.

Each of the seven Containers serve a different purpose: Bedrooms, Kitchen, Dining room, Mudroom, Recreation room and Bathroom – there is even a Sauna !

One of the most interesting features of the Home is its incredibly low power consumption of 1KW of solar PV to nett zero over a year ( the average Solar Powered Home might need 7 – 8 kw )

With its rustic décor and innovative off-grid approach, this solar powered getaway is an interesting take on Shipping Container Architecture.
