ILLINOIS- A home built entirely out of shipping containers designed to store and transport merchandise over long distances, located in the city of St. Charles west of Chicago, sold for $743,000 in less than three weeks on the market.At first glance, the exterior of the container house built in 2018 is very similar to most of the residences in the neighborhood, but inside is where its uniqueness and special characteristics are appreciated.Walls, ceilings and floors made of steel, corrugated aluminum and modified with wood make cargo containers a living space.This house was one of the first of its kind to be built in the Chicago area and according to architectural experts, the huge shipping containers have the perfect scale to be modified and become a living alternative in these times.See what the St. Charles container house looks like inside.Photos: ReMax All Pro St. Charles.
