LEED Cabins, a green home inside a recycled shipping container
We’ve seen shipping containers being recycled and overhauled into some pretty practical and usable finished products before. Well, we came across a home packed into a shipping container this time, and it sure as hell took our breath away. For $15,000 to $40,000, you could get yourself a home in a recycled shipping container by a New Hampshire-based company called LEED Cabins. These take around 25 days to build. Besides just using a recycled container and doing its bit for recycling, these homes are a lot greener too, with added on eco-friendly features like solar panels, grey water waste systems, composting waste systems and a lot more.
Complete with radiant floor heating, FSC flooring, energy efficient windows and doors, LED lighting, recycled glass mosaic tiles, “green” insulation, and no-VOC coatings these homes keep their act clean, giving you a nice cozy place to live with, and helping you do your bit for the environment.
