Shipping container home – Ecopods

The Ecopod was developed by Dwight Doerkson as a home that is easy to transport and doesn’t need connecting to the power grid. Like many of the other units we have looked at today its got a lowered side difference with this one though is it has a solar winch that can be operated at the flick of a switch.

A few eco ideas in the property include a rubber floor made from recycled tyres, 12v lighting system, solar refrigerator and a composting toilet. A lot of work has gone into these designs and homes although $40,000 does seem steep for me on the sale tag.
