First Shipping Container House in Mojave Desert Ecotech Design

This kit-like housing product is being offered for the first time to homeowners who want more than what is currently available with pre-fab and manufactured housing , even custom construction. Some of its unique features include:
Hybrid house design: based on the efficient Prius automobile engineering concept, the hybrid house concept combines diverse pre-engineered building and energy conservation features to maximize efficiency and cost savings, while offering architectural design flexibility and variation.
All steel construction: an integrated, steel framing system provides extraordinary strength, earthquake, fire and wind protection, as well as large window and door openings to maximize natural daylighting, ventilation and evaporative cooling.
Solar home shading system: a bolt-on, adjustable steel frame and shade system creates 50% solar heat, glare and wind reduction on the building and solar breezeway that allows for plug-in attachment of future solar electric and water heating panel arrays.
Living roof: movable, bolt-on module add-ons use greywater irrigation and are planted with native desert plants and sedums to absorb heat, glare, dust and CO2.
Water conservation: integrated greywater, water harvesting and storage systems.
Reduced Costs: Finished construction costs at 50% of equivalent, locally available, prefab alternatives.

By combining high-efficiency and mass-produced modular construction methods with innovative design in one of the harshest climate zones in North America, we have developed a low-cost, sustainable, housing system that can be transported and quickly erected anywhere in the world,” explains Architect, Walter Scott Perry, AIA, and Principal of Ecotech Design.
The hybrid house consists of cargo containers and pre-engineered steel building components that can be erected and combined together at the site, often in less than an hour.
The typical housing project in San Bernardino County takes one to three months to go through entitlement and permitting alone, adds Contractor, Eric Engheben Our project was approved and permitted in just one week.
