Prefab cabins the All Terrain Cabin


The All Terrain Cabin (ATC) ,designed by Canadian BARK, is basically a prefab cabin made out of old ISO shipping containers as the basis for the structure which have been outfitted totally with Canadian Design and Technology.

The result is smart and efficient. This prefab cabin or small house is suitable for a family of four and a pet to live off the grid in comfort and contemporary style. It travels by train, truck, ship, airplane or helicopter, folded up and indistinguishable from any ordinary shipping container.

Once it arrives, it unfolds rapidly to 480sf of self-contained, sophisticated living space with all the comforts of home.

BARK is a British Columbia registered non-profit collective of designers + businesses committed to raising the profile of Canadian design and ingenuity internationally, as well as here in Canada, for the benefit of all Canadians.

    Hello Icewalker,The ZipCabin is not intended to cotpeme in the same space as trailer homes. We have nothing at all against trailers but that’s not what we make yet – watch this space!The Zip is a small, mostly permit-exempt, very strong accessory building that works great as a backyard office, guest room, yoga pavilion, art studio, etc, but also works as an affordable hard-tent getaway place, especially if off-grid is your thing (it’s ours!).It is priced well compared to similar structures in its class. The optional 6 x12 covered deck actually costs a little over $2000 and most of that cost is not in the decking itself but in the extended 17’ SIP roof panels and in the additional foundation which, in fact, is a seamless continuation of the main structure’s foundation, rather than just a separate add-on. A pretty cool feature when you think about it.Cheers,Christopher ‘eco-hipster’ Thompson

    I am really impressed with the design that has been created. I am interested in how the side is raised and lowered for the deck and the off grid package you have installed. Is it 12vlt/120 lighting compatible, sunmar compostable toilet? Are these to be put into production, and what is the estimated cost?
    Very interesting

    Where can I order one of these – and cost??
    What are the options, models, prices etc??
    I’m really interested in this – would love to buy one and have it shipped and put on my little piece of land for a 2nd dwelling / studio. Thanx
