Saw this on a design blog, Bless This Stuff and it’s an interesting idea.

It’s called the Mod Box, basically it’s an eco-friendly micro apartment. Small footprint, low energy consumption.

We seem to keep building larger and larger homes, but we’re in them less and less. While that is a serious problem in its own right, one way to simplify is something like the Mod Box. Especially if you’re rarely home, except to sleep and eat.

It looks similar to the homes built from freight carriers, which is another awesome idea (i think).
