The first shipping container home in Edmonton is currently under construction and getting ready to hit the open market soon. Copperblock Capital and Sweet Suite Home Builds are teaming up to build the home on 106 St. in Queen Alexandra.

Adam Morris, President of Copperblock Capital says the idea of building a home out of shipping containers challenged his company, “We’ve been trying to build sustainable, environmentally and socially aware. Looking at how we can accomplish those things as well as how we can reduce our time under construction. We started looking at the science behind it and some of the features and functions and determined that it was suitable.”
