I have always been intrigued by creative solutions to housing, in our life the average person spend a third of all the money they make on housing, my question is, how can we change that third to a much smaller fraction? I found this a little bit ago and what I really like about it is that
- It is able to be transported via standard tractor trailer (18 wheeler) methods
- It uses recycled materials almost exclusively
- They are relatively inexpensive
- It can be locked up and short of someone spending an hour with a plasma cutting torch, they aren’t going to get in
All of these things are really important to me because I don’t want to spend my entire life in debt, I want to be able to move my home if I find a great job elsewhere with minimal cost, and when I go on month long vacations I can without worry about my home.
Eco pods are 120 square feet of living area not counting the built in deck. The floor is recycled car tires and actually looks really nice, plus gives some so you aren’t always standing on a hard surface, plus it cleans well. Check out the video below and their website here
