MEKA Unveils Modular Container Houses

Toronto-based housing company MEKA — that is, modular, environmental, kinetic, assembly — made national headlines with the launch of small container homes this week.  Seeking the ultimate trifecta of style, sustainability, and affordability, this start-up aims to produce “the most luxurious living spaces with a clean modern sensibility, at super affordable prices.

For that, New York Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, The Architect’s Newspaper, and others took notice.  There’s a 320 square-foot, $39,000 model open in West Village right now, which we’ll mention as soon as we get photos.

ALP320 – pricing from $39,000

VOR640 – pricing from $64,000

THOR1120 – pricing from $112,000

HELA1280 – pricing from $128,000

      I have more to say. This is probably the future. Housing is getting smaller.

    It would be nice to know what is and isn’t included for $39,000. Are Utilities, transport, installation, engineering, Architectural fees, permits etc. included?

      go to the website and you can read this for yourself.  They do not customize homes – they only have a few plans which is how they offer these so cheaply.  No, transport is not included and would be extra.  Same with permits – all cities and states are different – how would you expect them to deal with all those.

    Smallest unit makes the most style sense. Americans MUST try to live smaller.

    My wife and I are building our home out of a shipping container. It is more of a DIY kind of thing… but anyone can follow us on our blog.
