Keep It In The Family
From Building Ships To Building Homes
Ann Gillis was originally from Nova Scotia, Canada. Ann’s whole family has a long history of sea fishing. He father started the family business back in 1948 and her brothers and cousins followed suit. Some would become ship builders who brought their craftsmanship to the home construction sector with a fully sustainable home made of 100% recycled plastic bottles!
These brilliant new tiny-homes can withstand all of nature’s brutal elements… like a ship at sea!
