Description
From Cargo Ship to Container House

In a region filled with green-shuttered, white-clapboarded, quintessential New England homes, itís a stunning sight to come upon a life-vest orange, corrugated-metal home with expansive glass walls. This home was made from twelve industrial shipping containers, the home is anything but traditional or expected, and yet the Adriance home somehow seems entirely in harmony with the rugged, rocky coastline.

Working with the steel shipping containers requires skills more often found in commercial construction, so the Sheridan Corporation was hired to install and weld the metal containers, then we, Prin A. Allen & Sons, Inc., completed the finish work. This home was feautred in the July 2010 edition of Maine Home + Design magazine.
