This Company Builds And Delivers Sustainable Prefabs In 3 Months

Have you been considering adding on to your home? Maybe putting a pool house in the back? Starting your own yoga studio? Maybe just setting up somewhere in the woods with a little private getaway? It seems like a daydream, but sustainable modular home company Ecospace Studios has options for everyone's needs. Their prefabricated units take only 12 weeks to design, build, and deliver. Not only that, but the units are designed with a mind towards sustainable living and building. 

Dwell reports that the company is co-managed by architects from London-based firm IPT Architects, Lee Town, Amira Idris-Town, and Matthew Kettle, who have been working on the Ecospace prototypes since 2002.

Choosing a dwelling that suits your needs is pretty simple and fun. You can go to their online configurator to select one of the easily modifiable sizes that fit whatever your purpose is. 

And they have been used for basically everything, from a classroom at the Eleanor Palmer School in London, to a showroom for luxury vehicles. Their largest space can cost about £20,850 plus tax, with optional add-ons like built in shelving and work stations, low-energy underground heating, or a sedum green roof. 

The company works to use certified sources for recycled wood to build the units, and they write on their website that they have options for further green energy improvements, like "photovoltaic solar panels, ground and air source heat pumps, wind turbines, biomass boilers and log burning stoves." 

They're also extremely well-insulated, based off of a Scandinavian heating model. Ecospace prefabs sound like the coziest little home away from home that you can imagine, and luckily they're not just a dream. They're a cabin in the woods you can literally order online. What could be better than that?
