Just a 1.5 hour drive from Montreal.
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."
The one-and-a-half-storey home was built in 2016 and sits on a spacious 1.6-acre lot.
It has two bedrooms, one full bathroom, one powder room and a wood-burning stove.
The stove, refrigerator, washer and dryer are all included.
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.
