Nowadays you won’t surprise anyone with houses made of containers, of which even entire hotels are being built.
Such facilities can usually be seen in warm countries, where there is no need to heat the room. But the 32-year-old Joseph Dupuis broke the templates and built his home from containers in his native Canada. He says that winter with temperatures beyond minus 30 is usual.
Dupuis bought three freight containers worth three thousand dollars each and built a small house in the forest. Why did he need it? The fact is that a Canadian writes a scientific work about inexhaustible energy. So he decided to check on his own skin, whether solar panels can produce enough energy to heat the house. It turned out they can.
Dupuis installed a special heating and cooling system (in the summer the containers heat up like scrambled eggs in a frying pan) connected to solar panels on the roof. According to him, he quite comfortably spent last winter in his new home, when the thermometer often dropped below 30 degrees.
The adventurer spent about a month on equipment at home, working 14 hours a day. But now the interior can not say that the house is assembled with his own hands. Heated floors, stove, plans–to paint the walls. Yes, and do not need to pay for heating.
