Holiday Container House by MNM Architects in Cotes-D’armor, Brittany, France. In this video, we bring you a vacation home built from shipping containers to create a modern barn house in Cotes-D’armor, Brittany, France. This single story vacation house by MNM Architects is made of three 20 foot shipping containers. The containers sit parallel to each other with two containers on the extreme end and one in the middle. The containers sit on a concrete strip foundation to elevate them away from moisture. The additional indoor spaces in-between the containers are built from conventional wood framing and roof trusses above by the containers. To free up more of the interior space, the shipping containers were insulated on the outside. The containers were framed on the outside, insulated and covered with timber siding. The house is fitted with a proper roof just like a conventional house above the shipping container roofline. The entire roof structure is insulated and lined with plaster board, leaving portions of the cross beams exposed. The entire roof structure is covered with dark roofing shingles with a series of roof lights above the double volume living room and the attic space above the second and third container.
