Want an instant home?

My friends in Quebec at High Cube, led by Patrick Sauvé, build awesome container homes, offices, workshops and hunting cabins.

Their model container home is now for sale for $79,995; that’s Canadian dollars (not USD).

They’ll deliver the model to any place in Ontario or Quebec for free; ie, it’s included in the price. You have to budget an extra $9,900 however for the appliances, furniture and decorations… Also, GST (goods and services taxes) will apply at a 7% rate. If you are using it for a business (like renting it out when you are not using it on Airbnb), you can likely use the GST as a flow through ITC (input tax credit). Check with your accountant.

What they are doing kind of reminds me of the vision that Steven Spielberg had when he made his film, Ready Player One. The hero of the movie lived in the stacks; here’s a screenshot of that. Oh, and by the way, you can, in fact, stack High Cube container homes and other products…
