With a desire to build a dream house on containers, Will Breaux is the man who made this dream come true and with his determination, the man was able to build a house that turned out to be more beautiful than he ever imagined.
Every person wishes of a perfect dream house. Very few people though have the vision to make it come true, that too in a small budget. This designer Will Breaux made a beautiful luxurious home of 11 containers. Located on the McGowen street in Houston, according to Will, this house is an extensive structure of its kind.
With a beautiful roof deck, the house is piled with containers to give it a look of a three-story house. According to Will, he dreamed of this house since the 2000s but he struggled to find the right person who will get his vision. Not able to find one, Will decided to design one himself.
In his blog Will wrote, “I began looking at projects that were being built that I liked. Ultimately, a designer with a home builder family was hired to design a 3 story townhouse to be built on the lot. After going round and round for months, I eventually had to fire that group because they weren’t willing to give me what I wanted. Thus, the journey to design my own house began around 2011.”
Will's idea of container house was one that he thought a long time ago. When asked what made him chose containers? He explained, “Shipping containers are strong, fireproof, long-lasting, hurricane resistant, and have common characteristics.”
Will designed the house himself though he is not even a professional designer. Determined to make this idea workout, the first thing Will did was make a 3D sketch of the house. Now after all the hard work, he is a proud owner of a 2500 square foot house and now that the house is almost completely furnished it has turned out more beautiful than what he imagined.
