MEKA POP UP SHIPPING CONTAINER HOME

Greetings from New York City! 🙂

MEKA POP UP SHIPPING CONTAINER HOME

An attractive shipping container house shows the benefits of prefab living. This shipping container prefab, built out of 70 percent recycled material, cost just $100 per square foot. It showcases a doubled glazed argon-filled window, which lets in light. It was an almost-unheard of price point in New York: $100 per square foot for a new home. That’s what a pop-up shipping container structure that was displayed in the West Village in 2010 promised Manhattanites. The sleek, 320-square-foot MEKA home, designed by Jason Halter and Christos Marcopoulous and featuring 70% recycled materials, was a strong showing for prefab construction.

The home is made of cedar paneling, set over a steel shipping container. While the MEKA home only offers a single profile, the option to add a deck provides additional space and more flexibility. Each MEKA home arrives via truck nearly complete. From there, it can be built in a matter of days. And each unit features a customizable kitchen with IKEA products and a slate bathroom. The interior is lined with bamboo.

 

So what do you think? Would you buy this tiny home for $39,900? 🙂
