Gallery: Zigloo Domestique Shipping Container House is Up for Sale in C...

Don't worry, we haven't turned into a real estate agency - but we love this shipping container house in Canada and want to see it go to a good family. Zigloo Domestique is a home constructed from 8 shipping containers in the suburbs of Victoria that just went up for sale. Yours for only $728,000 (Canadian), this modern container home was originally built in 2006 and it features an array of energy-efficiency measures and green building strategies. The 3 bedroom, 2 bath house is located at the crossroads of the Fernwood Neighborhood, and it's just a 20-minute walk to Victoria’s famous Inner Harbour.

Built out of 8 shipping containers, Zigloo Domestique is a 3 story, 3 bedroom, 2 bath house in the suburbs of Victoria, Canada. The basement contains a large open rec room (which could be converted into 2 bedrooms), a bathroom, and a laundry room. The ground floor includes an open floor plan kitchen and dining area, and the upstairs contains the master suite, another bathroom, and a bedroom.

Designed for energy efficiency and sustainability, the home makes use of recycled shipping containers, soy-based spray foam insulation, a hot water on demand in-floor heating system, a green roof, and numerous recycled materials. Numerous decks expand the home’s living space into the outdoors, and passive natural ventilation is used for cooling in the warmer summer months. The house is now up for sale with an asking price of $728,000.
