We ship you not!

A “green” home in Williamsburg constructed entirely of 21 shipping containers is in contract for $5 million.

Originally built by Brooklyn-based restaurateurs Joe and Kim Carroll — who own the Belgian beer bar Spuyten Duyvil and Anselm — the house was completed in 2016.

The house at 2 Monitor St. in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, was built in 2016.

The oddly shaped, four-story home, which looks like a large rectangle cut at an odd angle, was assembled on the 25-by-100 “cleverly stacked” together to create a slanted shape, according to Dirt.com.

The site notes that “to assemble the dwelling on the 25-by-100-foot corner lot, the architects placed three containers side by side, and sliced them at an angle before they cleverly stacked them together in a manner that formed the four-floor home’s slanted shape.”

The final result is a 3,500-square-foot, five-bedroom house with what the real estate listing describes as “New York City’s last permitted wood-burning fireplace,” a home office, terrace, den and comes complete with two driveways and a garage.
