Shipping Container

House

 

I am watching the series Grand Designs on NETFLIX. The County Derry 2014 episode is about a “young farmer and architect in Northern Ireland [who] hopes to make a home out of four large shipping containers welded together to form a giant cross.”

Note: in the YouTube video I found (below) the audio is a bit sped up and the image is reversed left to right … but you get the idea. (Yes, yes, I know that that the Irish and the Brits drive on the “other side” of the road from us Yanks, but that is NOT the reason that the image is reversed)

 

If you like architecture and love gorgeous homes you should try to catch this series!
