Canadian man who built self-sufficient home in the woods from $3,400 shipping containers puts it up for sale for $58,000

The Canadian man who built a beautiful home inside three shipping containers in the woods is hoping to sell his creation for someone else to enjoy.

Joseph Dupuis, 30, researches renewable energy research at Algonquin College in Ottawa and built his cabin roughly 35 miles west of the city with shipping containers from Asia.

The engineer and entrepreneur bought the containers that brought goods to North America for $3,400 Canadian each, and has fashioned them into a self-sustaining home on a plot of land owned by his family.
