California-based ‘IC Green’ manufactures and pre-assembles homes, studios and cabanas from recycled shipping containers. Whether a small guest house or studio or an expansive residence, these prefab homes come with large glass openings, a well insulated envelope and a modular living green roof.
The 20” steel box frames are delivered by truck and lifted in place by crane or forklift.
I love that the company’s largest house model is designed around a central courtyard, featuring a three bedroom house with two full baths, a full Galley kitchen, laundry room and ample closet space. Solar applications for domestic warm water, radiant floor, and electricity production are also available.
