Sawtooth, during its premier at NYC’s World Maker Faire (lightpost not included)

For this striking and unique modification, we cut and vaulted the ceiling to include clerestory windows for both light and passive solar heat. Reminiscent of classic factory design, this detail gives your cabin an airy feeling and encourages stargazing from bed. The solid backside of the windows house the solar panel system.

Twin sets of double sliding doors on the front provide easy access and plenty of light, two windows are cut into the the back wall, and the side walls are solid to allow for a lofted sleeping space, bookcases, and more storage.

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 white, or pick any exterior color you like for no extra charge. Marine grade epoxy coating keeps it virtually maintenance free.
