What would you do with an empty lot and nine shipping containers?

Libby and Regan Foster decided to build a luxury house.

Over the course of a year, the Denver-based family built a two-story home out of nine 8-foot-wide, 40-foot-long and 9.5-foot-tall shipping containers.

Regan told The Denver Post:

"I tried to dream up a new and creative way to build a house and this is what we came up with. I liked the idea of building a house out of recycled materials."

Check out this truly unbelievable home below:

Each container weighs around 8,500 pounds and cost $2,200. The total estimated cost for this construction and planning was $500K.

The house is about 4,000 square feet and houses both the Fosters and another couple and their child.

And in case you were wondering, the peculiar-looking home definitely attracts its fair share of curious neighbors:

"We'll have people walk up on the weekend and peek through the windows while we're sitting there in our pajamas."

We can't say we wouldn't do the same!
