Weird Homes Tour – Detroit
You may not know that it is actually cheaper to build new shipping containers than to move empty ones. This has created quite the surplus. Well, Leslie Horn and Three Squared want to help carry the load by reusing and re-purposing these hearty structures.
Their out-of-the-box thinking literally leverages the box. They gather and assemble these containers to bring us colorful and charismatic buildings that challenge the conventional homes. Leslie likes to brag that they can even be assembled in less than a day.
While most people think minimal when it comes to shipping container homes, Leslie’s home stands at a super-sized 2,400 sq ft and 3 stories high. You will not find an empty box here. Instead there stands a cool, modern and efficient building. No wonder HGTV, USA Today and many others have wanted to feature it.
