Solar-Powered Prefab Shipping Container Home | Tiny House Interiors


Solar-Powered Prefab Shipping Container Home Solar-Powered Prefab Shipping Container Home
was designed to accommodate a growing family. It offers both private and common spaces that
can be easily expanded by adding more containers to the existing ones. Repurposed materials
were used throughout the house, from wood siding made from reclaimed shipping pallets
to carpeting made from reprocessed fishing nets and insulation made from recycled denim
batting. An array of 24 photovoltaic panels powers
the house and an electric vehicle, with each panel containing a micro-inverter that transforms
direct current to alternating current without the need for a centralized inverter. Automated
windows support the HVAC system and help maintain optimal indoor temperatures. The lighting
is also automated in order to save energy and detect when the house is empty. Residents
can use three hydroponic gardens to produce fresh vegetables and herbs. Thanks to the
greywater reclamation system that provides irrigation for the gardens and the bathroom,
the house reduces its water consumption by up to 25 percent.
