Designer Mehdi Hidari Badie has taken the idea of the pop-up to extremes with what Yanko calls an "Amazing Modern Mobile Home. " Blu Homes should hire this guy or pick this unit up for their home shows; it is sort of an extreme version of their folding homes.

How much room do we need? At what cost?

To make an adequate sized space, multiple boxes need to be combined. This is not the case with EBS Block as our unique innovative design opens up to be 6 metres long X 8 metres wide X 3.5 metres high and provides a total live-able area of 54m2 which encompasses the pull out bathroom/kitchen on each side of the house. EBS Block is opened via remote control using the integrated mechanical and electrical systems.

EBS Block is designed to adapt to harsh terrains and weather conditions, providing a spacious and comfortable living area.

Hon svetsade ihop 4 containrar på sin tomt. När vi ser slutresultatet tappar vi andan!

Faktum är att hennes företag, Collections Dubreuil, är stolta över deras sätt att bygga hus och återanvända material på ett ekologiskt hållbart sätt.

Hon bestämde sig för att använda gamla fraktcontainrar som byggmaterial, och resultatet är inget annat än häpnadsväckande. Att få tag i containrar var enkelt. Den svåraste delen i hela projektet var att få ingenjören att anpassa dem efter hennes ritningar. Efter att ha kämpat i månader fick hon dem till slut levererade och svetsade på plats.
