The Black Star is Toronto's first shipping container home, designed and built by Carl and Ana. It's a hybrid structure with three used shipping containers forming one half of the house, and the other half is a conventional build, but it's floating above the restaurant that the couple own, using pillars to support it. This build turned out beautifully and we loved checking out the interior and exterior design. We also chatted quite a bit with Carl and Ana about the process of building this home, and the advantages and challenges of building a house using containers. They say the biggest challenges were insulating the containers, connecting them to another structure, and finding a way to drop them between two buildings and from a narrow alley way.
