Lulu from Argentina, lives in the United States in a shipping container! She has magnificently transformed this container into a home for her and her daughter to live in.
A simple container? No, a home! Lulu spent a month working on designing and creating her new home. And the result is incredible. With no prior experience in building, Lulu did her own insulation, installed the windows and put in the kitchen. All of this for just 4,000 dollars. A living room, kitchen, two bedrooms, a bathroom… it has it all! And what’s more, the view is spectacular!
It should be noted that although this type of container-house seems quite primeval, in Europe, more and more housing constructions are using old containers that are no longer in use, as their foundations. In France, there are quite a few student residences have been built using them.
This technique has two advantages. It allows old containers like this to be reused, but also strongly reduces construction costs!
