CPA Magazine: Big growth in container homes

November 2017 – In a special Real Estate edition of the CPA Magazine, Home Free showcases Canadians who have opted for creative alternatives to the typical home and are now reaping a simpler life in the process.

Lisa van de Geyn highlights various alternative homes across the country from tiny homes, yurts and our Octopod shipping container cabin. How interesting that the article focuses on the challenges of building alternative homes. We’re not even talking about the build itself but how municipalities are slow to incorporate these new housing trends in their by-laws and how building codes make permitting extremely difficult to manoeuvre.

A very informative read on the challenges associated with untraditional builds.
