53' long Canadian Tire container Turned into Minimalist Micro Tiny House.


The shipping container was originally a 53' long shipping container that they purchased used (it used to be a Canadian Tire container, and they cut it in half to create two identical cabins. They insulated the container with foam boards, they heat it with an electric baseboard, and they have a Sun-Mar composting toilet.


The container is only about eight feet wide eight feet tall and 26 feet long,so starting at one end there's the bed here it's positioned

right up against the window so you have

a really amazing view when you're in bed

there's also a blind that you can pull

down if it's really sunny or if you want

some privacy .

Bigger isn't always better and we'd love to see more diversity in the sizes of homes that are being built to accommodate for a whole range of preferences.


The Repère Boréal eco resort is a gorgeous space created by two brothers, Simon and Jonathan. Their father had originally bought the land to start a campground but he passed away before the project could begin. The two brothers decided to build on his dream and have created several inspiring tiny cabin designs.
