Zigloo Domestique: A cozy shipping container home you can live inVICTORIA — Recycling has become a daily chore in most homes, but for Victoria residential designer Keith Dewey the process of reusing is integral to the homes he creates. Dewey lives in what’s thought to be Canada’s first shipping container building, Zigloo Domestique, with his wife and daughter. The couple bought an awkward lot in downtown Victoria with a buildable footprint of 42 feet by 40 feet, and Dewey was able to create a home with a living space of 2,000 square feet. The inspiration for designing homes with shipping containers came while Dewey was completing an environmental design program at the Ontario College of Art and Design.
Inspired by the Future Shack and suggestions from friends and family, Dewey began developing plans for Zigloo Domestique.


Now Zigloo is working on plans for residential spaces from Chicago to Devon, Alta., southeast of Edmonton, where a project using 2,000 shipping containers to build a high-density condo community is in the works. Even though shipping containers are strong when used for their intended application, Evan Willoughby, co-founder of Saskatoon’s 3Twenty Solutions, said they become weaker when you cut the walls. Willoughby and partner Bryan McCrea met while promoting former Dragon’s Den entrepreneur Brett Wilson’s Idea Q Challenge.
The pair ended up winning the challenge and eventually struck a deal with Wilson on the CBC-TV show.
With the goal of eventually building residential spaces, 3Twenty Solutions creates onsite work and housing facilities, including a 180-person barracks at Canadian Forces Base Cold Lake in Alberta for Operation Maple Flag.


Even though the containers need modifications to make them livable, Dewey said the environmental impact of using “end of life” containers is important.
We also put a proper roof over them and created a very comfortable interior style,” he said. It was a small 20-foot container converted into what was called the Future Shack,” he said.
