August 6, 2014 by
Are you packing your bag for your next vacation and are worried about where you will be staying in the wilderness? Is there a forest patch that you’ve dreamed of living in but don’t know how? One way to achieve this is by buying an eco-friendly container house. If you can lift about 60 pounds of weight, this Lego set-like house is a great buy for adventurers.
Go Green with an Eco-Friendly, Compact Container Homes
Eco-friendly promotional items of big and small sizes are popping up all over the world. Every little green measure adopted by people helps the environment remain clean and habitable not only for people but also for the animals and plants. In Palm Beach County, there is a company called Mesocore that manufactures self-contained homes. These houses can be transported in their own containers and have their own supply of electricity provided by affixed solar panels and can store up to 2,000 gallons of rain water in a compartment fixed above the home. At 1,000 square feet in size, these container homes are spacious and attractive.
As people are becoming more environmentally-conscious, these container houses are now being made out of materials that are reusable, recyclable and can be reduced. Most of them use natural light as much as possible and follow green measures like usage of solar panels and rainwater harvesting to make them an independent unit that can be used anywhere at any time. TFM Removals is a UK-based company that also transports container homes and has compiled a list of the top 15 of such homes.
Occupying the first spot is the San Antonio Guest House built by Poteet Architects. The house comes with large windows and a deck, making the most use of limited space to give it a luxurious feel and attractive. It also has a roof garden. The 2nd spot is held by Insta House, manufactured by Maziar Behrooz Architecture. It uses upcycled space to create a house that is completely free of clutter and very attractive to look at and live in. Beach House by CCCA is at the third spot with its carefully selected colored homes which match the texture of the materials used to build the house (concrete, weathered zinc and timber) and also has a spacious look.
