[Originally posted on Inhabitat.  I was going to say more, but that’s going to become a piece of its own.]

[ETA: I also found out io9.com ran a piece with a couple of the same pictures, but no acknowledgment of the Inhabitat article.  They also indicated it was in Holyoke, Massachusetts, not Minnesota, so maybe they didn’t read my piece.]

Holyoke Cabin is an excellent example of an elegant, efficient use of shipping containers to create a cozy cabin off the grid. Two used shipping containers, obtained for $800 apiece, serve as the starting point for this quaint prefab residence located outside of Duluth, Minnesota.
