Forget about exposed brick interiors — it's all about the metal shipping containers at this $280,000 North Minneapolis home.

Background: This 1,300-square-foot house, built this year by Paragon Designs, claims to be the first shipping container home in the Twin Cities.

  • The three-bed, two-bath, five-container home sits on a .2 acre corner lot in the Jordan neighborhood.
  • It has all the amenities of a typical build and some extras, including a cute balcony and an unfinished basement.

Of note: It's part of the Minneapolis Homes Program, which helps provide funding for affordable homes and promotes homeownership. Potential buyers must qualify.

Our thoughts: Could the appeal of this industrial look be one of the factors behind the global shipping container shortage?
