Curb Appeal Landscaping
Helping savvy homeowners enhance the pleasure of their outdoor living

From two dark, cold, steel shipping containers…a cozy, vibrant living space will emerge.
There are no truer words here than, ‘never judge a book by its cover’. The exterior will hold true to its roots and have its original industrial look. The interior on the other hand will be transformed. It will be restructured so the space will have much more than its original four walls. It will be restyled into a contemporary living area. With square footage hard to come by, organization will be key here. Innovative ways to use space and to stay organized will be cleverly incorporated.
Can’t wait to see the end product? You have to! This special project by Contained Living Corp. is being revealed at the Toronto Fall Home Show. Don’t miss it!
