A vacation home you can order and have delivered to your destination of choice. The Ecopod, made from an old shipping container, is a tiny home away from home. This little guy goes for around $27,000 canadian and seems to be more like a hard shell tent, than a home. Get this, no bathroom, no kitchen, and no air conditioning.
The ecopod does come with a single 80 watt solar panel, a 12 volt battery system, recycled car tire rubber floors, windows and a drop down deck. The deck is designed to lift up and close off your ecopod, while your away for extended periods of time. Basically the deck is the old siding of the original container, and when closed, the container, is a container once again.
