Homes by 3Leafs showcases the first single family, shipping container home built in Calgary. The Alberta based company is changing how homes are constructed by transforming recycled steel containers into high performance, energy efficient homes with net zero capabilities.

September 19, 2019, Calgary, AB ​Homes by 3Leafs gave media an exclusive inside look into the sleek, elegant modern two-storey home made from four recycled shipping containers. The home is nestled in the eco-friendly community, Echohaven, in northwest Calgary.

Som Sourachit, C.E.O. of Homes by 3Leafs describes this moment as pivotal. “Our high performance, energy efficient houses reduce waste in landfills by repurposing steel shipping containers into dream homes. The houses have net zero capabilities and are the new blueprint for how we should build while protecting our environment. “

It’s estimated there are millions of shipping containers piling up in landfills worldwide. The repurposed containers make the perfect envelope for a home, and reduce the heavy reliance on trees used for construction. The steel means shipping container homes are sturdier and will last for generations with fewer repairs than traditional stick builds over time.

The homeowner, Jaime Turner, added “This is a teaching moment for my young daughter. We wanted to build a legacy for her. This is our forever home and we know because it’s made of steel it will last for generations, and an added bonus is, we are being good to our environment!”

Homes by 3Leafs is proud to be leading the way in new home construction. Currently, 6 building projects are underway.

From Elysha Snider and Chelsey Key

Shed Your Threads Consignment Clothing Event

On October 6th, Elysha Snider, Chelsey Key, and Copper Lane Hair Studio will be hosting their third Shed Your Threads: an annual consignment-inspired shop designed to support style and community.
All clothes are donated, sorted, and priced creating a one-of-a-kind shopping experience. Not only does the event promote fashion-based sustainability, but it also supports the city of Red Deer, as every dollar spent gets donated to a local organization.
This year, all proceeds from the sale will be donated to the Red Deer River Naturalists, and all clothes that do not sell will be donated to Vantage Community Service’s Street Ties Outreach Centre for youth experiencing homelessness.
Our hope is to grow each year- from our motivation to the final donations, we want this event to be a meaningful one.
Event Details:
– Date/Time: Sunday, October 6th from 11 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
– Location: Copper Lane Hair Studio in Red Deer
