Shipping containers aren’t just for shipping anymore.

In Australia, and even here in Canada, they’re being converted into backyard swimming pools. In Edmonton, at least for the moment, they’re being used a bit more conventionally and just being transformed into residential living spaces.

“I heard about people building with shipping containers before but I understood, as most people do, that if you’re living in a shipping container house, it looks like a shipping container house on the outside and it looks like a shipping container on the inside,” said Adam Morris, CEO of Edmonton-based real estate development company Copperblock Capital.
