EBS Block | Product EBS Block is a uniquely designed modular, prefabricated, fully functional portable house created from a 20ft shipping container. Dimensionally, traditional individual container homes can create awkward living/working spaces. Taking into account added insulation, you have a long narrow box with less than eight foot ceiling. 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. EBS is highly transportable as the entire unit is built inside a standard TEU 20 feet ISO HC shipping container. Residential Pricing Standard

The units themselves are not built from recycled containers. Each unit includes a kitchen, a small living area, a bathroom, and a bedroom that can host up to 4 people with bunk beds. According to the website, the MODS are built to code so you don’t have to worry about breaking any regulations.

Amazing Expanding House Pops Out of Single Trailer © Mehdi Hidari Badie Back in the dawn of the shipping containers as housing era, nobody thought about using empty boxes and shipping air; because of the cost of the box and shipping, people were playing with folding designs. 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. Really extreme; there are a lot of panels to unfold, a lot of edges that will need gaskets and seals. Yanko writes: This cleverly compact mobile housing design by Mehdi Hidari Badie has got all the bases covered when it comes to making the most of limited space. It is all rather clever, over triple the size of the basic trailer, complete with exterior decks and solar panels on the roof.

MEKA reinvents shipping container housing Shipping containers are wonderful things- for shipping. They are part of an elaborate and extensive infrastructure for moving goods cheaply and efficiently that has revolutionized world trade. They are also all the rage among designers and architects who have been converting them into housing, with varying degrees of success. Then there is Meka. Where a shipping container is designed with enough steel to stack nine high completely filled with stuff, Meka designs their boxes with just enough steel to do the structural job that is required, while filling in the rest with conventional building materials that cost a lot less, that are easier to work with, and provide some insulation. What we're working with is a more livable structure. Where conventional modular housing has a range of about 500 miles from the factory because of the cost of shipping, these things can go anywhere. We were fascinated with and wanted to continue to pursue the ease of shipping and trucking and rail.

Building with Shipping Containers by Kelly Hart An idea whose time seems to have arrived is the use of stockpiled shipping containers as modular units for building homes. Because of the balance of trade in the United States, these hefty steel boxes are piling up in ports around the country and posing a storage problem. Several architects and builders are taking advantage of this surplus to recycle the containers. According to David Cross of, "a container has 8000 lbs of steel which takes 8000 kwh of energy to melt down and make new beams etc... Each container measures 8 feet wide by 40 feet long by 9 feet tall. According to KPFF Consulting, a structural engineering firm in St. As for their energy efficiency, they claim that when the appropriate coatings are installed, the envelope reflects about 95 percent of outside radiation, resists the loss of interior heat, provides an excellent air infiltration barrier and does not allow water to migrate in.
