Another reader requested abode – although I can’t for the life of me remember who requested it! (Sorry!!)

Les Containers is a très awesome vacation rental in France.

The structure is a 2-story, 2 bedroom 2-bath getaway cottage built from 2 upcycled shipping containers. (2-2-2-2!!)

The boxes are stacked, but off-set so it doesn’t totally look like a double-decker box-car.

The container house is located in Saintry-sur-Seine, Île-de-France which is about 30 kilometers south of Paris.

The industrial feel of the containers is softened with distinctly French ironwork details and an artful interior.

Not a bad price – for a spot on the Seine River close to Paris!

Beautiful and ingenious!

 

ps……Have a look at another shipping container house I featured a while ago to see how these things are being utilized.
