Self-Contained Living… from cargo ship to container house. This home was constructed from twelve industrial shipping containers, the home is anything but tradition 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 Kalkin contracted Sheridan Corporation, one of Maine’s largest commercial builders to install and weld the metal containers. Then the Brooklin-based
construction firm, Prin A. Allen & Sons, Inc., completed the finish work. This house is "the frosting on the cake - marrying a modern, utilitarian design to an old Downeast setting".
