The Saugerties is our original model and the eco cabin of our dreams. Clad in white-washed wood and bathed in light, this fully finished and outfitted 20’ container is entirely self-contained for off-grid living in any environment. Highly insulated for four-season use, it’s equipped with a pellet stove and battery-backed solar power, gravity-feed water, and a built-in kitchen.

Our unique process for modifying and welding the shipping container, developed carefully and test relentlessly, ensures a dry, well-insulated space that will outlast any trailer, prefab, or conventional home.

Virtually maintenance-free, it’s delivered ready for you to furnish, decorate and settle in.

Comes standard charcoal gray, or pick any exterior color you like for no extra charge. Marine grade epoxy coating keeps it virtually maintenance free. We can easily adapt yours if you prefer to use it with any utilities you choose.

Price: $32,000

Also available as a 40’ cabin: $52,000

Allow 6-8 weeks for fabrication. Shipping and placement available.
