Shipping container homes will soon be moving into back alleys across the city, if Daniel Engelman has his way.
The co-owner of Honomobo is pitching the unconventional construction as a way to expand Edmonton's stock of garage and garden suites.
The Edmonton company's new series of suites, built in a factory west of Stony Plain, can be installed on top of a new garage in just under a week.
The units range from $99,000 for a studio to $147,000 for a two-bedroom suite, with the added cost of about $25,000 for the new garage.
The first in the series will be on display in Churchill Square from June 3-5, before it's installed in Engleman's backyard in the Ritchie neighbourhood.
