At Inhabitat, we love compact, modern designs that take advantage of efficient prefabricated building techniques, and Ruby Sketch‘s shipping container home certainly caught our eye with its sleek form and super-sustainable energy saving systems. The efficient and affordable living space boasts double insulation, solar power, and it can be run off the grid for 2 weeks without electricity. With a generous bathroom, living and bedroom cleverly laid out, it can easily be craned into a backyard and built in less than 3 weeks!
