Mojave Desert Container Home

A container hybrid house prototype, also known as The Tim Palen Studio at Shadow Mountain, is a 2nd generation pre-fab design for a residence and workplace developed by ecotechbuild.  Located in the Mojave Desert in California this kit-like housing product is being offered for the first time to homeowners who want more than what is currently available with pre-fab and manufactured housing, even custom construction.  This hybrid house consists of cargo containers and pre-engineered steel building components that can be erected and combined together at the site, often in less than an hour.







The home boast several sustainable features like a Hybrid House Design; All Recycled Steel Construction; Solar Home Shading System; Living Roof; Water Conservation; and Reduced Construction Costs.







“By combining high-efficiency and mass-produced modular construction methods with innovative design in one of the harshest climate zones in North America, we have developed a low-cost, sustainable, housing system that can be transported and quickly erected anywhere in the world,” explains Architect, Walter Scott Perry, AIA, and Principal of ecotechdesign.
