These Self-Contained & Self-Sustaining Prefab Pods Can Be Dropped Anywhere

The prefab cabin industry is nothing new, though in recent years there’s been a marked demand for ready-made structures that can be dropped in remote locations that wouldn’t be accessible using traditional construction methods. And one of the most calculated, well-thought-out units in this space is undeniably Ecocapsule’s SPACE.

Fully self-sustaining, the SPACE is made from steel, fiberglass, and wood, and offers a cool 88-square foot of room, measuring 7.22’ W, 15.32’ L, and 8.2’ H. And with a weight of under 3,000lbs, the SPACE can easily be heli-dropped just about anywhere. The Slovakian micro-homes can either be connected to local water and power grids, or can be utilized as a self-sustaining structure thanks to the option for removable solar panels (and power bank), wind turbines, and a rainwater collection and filtration system. Also equipped with heating, AC, WiFi connectivity, smart home sensors, and LED lighting throughout, the entire home can be controlled via a smartphone app. The compact mobile dwellings are also outfitted with furniture designed to maximize living space, including a folding bed. The SPACE also includes a small ensuite. Best of all, pricing for the SPACE starts at just $62,800 — a substantial drop in price from Ecocapsule’s $100K ORIGINAL model.

Purchase: $62,800+
