Global warming is not the only thing that is a headache to mother nature- the ever increasing human population is also worrying. And, we cannot blame anyone but ourselves on this, of course.

How about you give a shot to the Maison container house? This is a home that tries to combine the traditional appeal of a farmhouse but it is still made of shipping containers. Designed by a French architect with the aim of creating a traditional home from sustainable materials, the house is over 2,000 square feet and its interiors are top notch!

The container house first came to existence in 2009 when an this company wanted to have a both functional and elegant house made from shipping containers. Today, the 2000 square feet house has two levels where the ground has an open kitchen and a living room, and the bedroom plus home office are upstairs.
