re-thinking the box

Container prefab housing made from old containers is modern and innovative and it's modular design is compact and environmentally friendly.

Companies such as 'ecopods' hand craft these buildings from recycled materials so that you can enjoy the natural environment responsibly without contributing to the construction industry's ongoing wastage of our natural resources. It's a building which adapts with your own individual needs - you can transport it from site to site, add more units as your family or budget expands or re-orientate the units to suite the topography and best views your site has to offer.

Built from recycling steel shipping containers, ecopods are 1280 cubic foot (8x20) steel storage container transformed into a living, working and high end display spaces. The Ecopod is a transformed, designed built, multiple use, eco-friendly, building that promotes the best use of portability, off grid power supply capabilities and low environmental foot print. Powered 'off grid', with an 80 watt solar panel, can also be powered by conventional electrical tie-in. It is an excellent example of the three R’s, Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.
