Sustainable Design

The cottage features 12 solar panels, a green roof, solar thermal collectors for hot water, seven insulated shipping containers for the frame, and reclaimed materials for many of the interior and exterior elements including carpets and wood.

Interior living spaces

Sustainable living doesn’t need to be rough and rural. Even the inside of a shipping container can feel like home with the right fit and finish.
