Many people are astonished by images of a beautiful Abuja duplex constructed with shipping containers.

Social media is ablaze with images of a two-bedroom house made out of shipping containers.

The stunning structure in Abuja is believed to have been finished in two months and has an inside that matches any brick house.

The duplex made of shipping containers is far more mobile and less expensive to build than masonry homes.

A Nigerian man identified as Brian Dennis has shown off a fine two bedroom house situated in Kado, Abuja that was built with containers.

Brian said that it took just two months to build and costs less when compared to houses constructed with bricks.

He added that Abuja residents who would settle for container houses can relocate to any location with their abode, unlike brick houses.

Sharing pictures of the container on Facebook, Brian wrote:

“Dear Abuja people.

“This is a 2 bedroom duplex built with containers in Kado.

“It took only 2 months to build and cost way less than it would cost to build with brick and mortar.

“Make we reason am.

“Edit – If you’re moving out of Abuja, you can move your house and sell the land.”
