FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: July 12, 2021
Paragon Designs and the Pinnacle Team of eXp Realty are proud to present Minnesota's first shipping container home. But there's so much more to this three-bedroom, two bathroom home that features four 40x10 shipping crates and one 20x10 crate.
"This home is a piece of modern art, and we couldn't be more thrilled to unveil our debut project in North Minneapolis," says Paragon Designs founder Dave Schiller. "Our team is full of critical thinkers with innovative ideas, and our goal is to never build the same home twice."
Seeing is believing!
You are invited to the ribbon-cutting of the home at 2434 Irving Avenue North on Wednesday, July 14th at 11 a.m. Local leaders and dignitaries will be on hand for the event, which will feature light refreshments, snacks and desserts. The entire Paragon team will be on hand and available for interviews, along with members of the Pinnacle Team at eXp Realty.
"It has been a pleasure to work with Dave and his Paragon team," realtor Amber Steiner of the Pinnacle Team says. "I've marveled at their creativity and their ability to solve problems and challenges, and their masterful ability to use the metal and stones to build a distinctive home. I know future homeowners will welcome them with open arms."

But resourceful builders have realized another benefit: They make great homes, too! Shipping containers are strong, eco-friendly and provide you a customizable and distinctive home that won't look like the rest.
