Michele Bertomen and David Boyle set out the achieve the American dream by building their own home in Brooklyn, New York. But the house they chose to create is undoubtedly a little different from the typical, white picket-fenced version that may spring to mind. The couple built the four-level residence out of six stacked shipping containers over the past few years, and were finally able to move in just a short while ago. Check out our photo gallery to see all that this truly unique residence has to offer – from cool upcycled furniture ideas to cut-out balconies to a sweet spiral staircase.
