From swimming pools to shopping complexes to Airbnbs, people are finding new uses for shipping containers and it's not just because they look cute. They're durable, cost-effective and can be highly energy efficient. This $435,000 house for sale in the Laurentians — about an hour and a half from Montreal — is made from five steel shipping containers and it's no exception.

The listing describes this property as a "unique and modern house" with "unparalleled energy efficiency" and a "breathtaking panoramic view."

While the property is clearly beautiful in the summertime, there's no need to fear winter either, as the house is insulated with urethane and comes with a heated concrete floor. According to the listing, you can access alpine ski slopes in minutes, and the Viking Club's cross-country trails are just seconds away — so it's also a skier's paradise.
