This is the Ecopod. A smaller but energy-eco-efficient way for a homeowner to get away from the crazy things in the world. This shipping container home is easily transported and secure plus safe enough to leave in remote areas for longer periods of time. Every single Ecopod derives its power by an 80-watt solar panel, the flooring is made with rubber used from recycled tires and insulated with a soy-based product for the cold.
An eco-friendly container enclosure made out of recycled shipping containers will definitely be great. In addition to being environment friendly, such homes are also affordable as these are built using recycled and reused materials. And, the overall carbon footprint is also lowered as such homes will be installed with solar panels and high-quality insulation.
Designing Prefab Container Homes
Have a good finish. Finishing touches are very important for shipping container homes especially when it comes to weather-proofing. You need to make sure that the container is well-coated in order to prevent any metal from being exposed to rain and moisture. You also need to put some insulators or other materials that will prevent the interior from becoming too hot or too cold during extreme climate conditions.
Of course it does take a bit of construction work to fix up these steel containers including installing insulation, plumbing, electrical, windows and doors. Yet, when all is said and done, the homes are made from recycled materials, cheap and unique. And this is just what many green home owners are looking for right now.
So far the most popular places for building cargo container homes has been in parts of Asia and in the former Soviet Union. But recently shipping container houses have started showing up in the United States specifically in southern California.
