Gallery: One Cool Habitat Offers a Customizable Prefab ‘Your Way’

 
The turnkey prefab base model will start at $29,500. One model is inspired by the design of early fifties diners that incorporated elongated panoramic windows, with the functionality of a solid 'skirt' that allows furniture placement at lower levels. The other design is still top secret.

One Cool Habitat is built out of a 20′ shipping container, using the chasis of the container as a basis for the space. They cut out space for windows and doors, efficiently reusing the cut parts or sending them off to shipping container rebuilders. Windows are bonded to the frame of the structure similar to how a car windshield is attached — this provides extra support for the frame. Rather than traditional insulation and wall facing, a composite panel is used that provides efficient insulation, strength, and a wall. This composite is also fire-retardant, vermin proof and fully recyclable.
