“Although built in the city of Wuxi (China), the design of the prototype has been developed in Denmark. World Flex Home is a modular system in which the structure is composed of stacked containers 12 m long and 2.5 m high and 2.5 m wide, approx. This two-story apartment together is just one example of the many versions of home that each customer can customize through an online tool that allows you to define the surface, the height, the interior layout, facades, etc” (source)

Using Recycled Materials to Build Future Homes

I’m always inspired by projects that use old materials like used shipping containers as the base or at least as part of the overall design for a new house, even if it doesn’t end up being very tiny (like this one). For me it’s just interesting to see people use what’s already been manufactured and used to build something new and useful.

How Will You Use Reclaimed Materials to Build Your Future Tiny/Small House?

What ideas and plans do you already have in mind for your future home for using reclaimed materials? Will you build using wood that used to be part of an old barn? Will you use an existing utility trailer as the foundation for your future tiny house?

Only one bathroom for the entire structure?… would hate getting up from my upstairs Office or Bedroom to trek through to the stairs, to 1st floor, to use the bathroom…
