Okay, maybe it's not a mansion, but it sure is the biggest shipping container home I've ever seen! Built with seven--count 'em--SEVEN shipping containers, it is the creation of Bernard Morin and Joyce Labelle of Maison Idekit Home. According to reports, 'The containers are covered with 12 cm (5 inches) of urethane insulation and wooden cladding. The interiors of the containers have been left with bare metal walls giving a stylish industrial feel. The 280 square metre (3,000 square feet) house cost just $175,000 to build'.
