The house was built from a single shipping container measuring 40 feet long by 10 feet wide. Ceardean Architects designed the home, which they envisioned as a working prototype for alternative, DIY housing. Over 60 contractors and suppliers, the majority of whom were Business Network Ireland members, donated their materials and time to construct the home.

The shipping container prototype can sleep six and includes a bathroom unit, kitchen, living space, and an outdoor deck. The unit is also equipped with solar power, micro heat recovery units, back boilers, and hot water heating. The completed project was temporarily put on display for public tours at the IMMA.
