MEKA World Container Homes

MEKA World is a Canada based company specializing in metal shipping container homes. They have eight impressive container home designs to choose from.  The number in the model name tells you how many square feet the design has.  For example, the ALP 320 is 320 square feet.  You can find more photos and floor plans on their website,  All photo and image credits in this post go to MEKA World.

They have also recently added two micro homes called the TALMA 200 and LIBERTY 200, each made of one 8'x20' container (160 square feet).  Those sell for $29,000 USD and $36,000 USD respectively.  The Liberty is an off-grid model that features solar electricity and thermal, battery storage, composting toilet, and a water storage tank.

ALP 320 Interior

The ALP 320 shown above is a studio model (no separate bedroom).  The SOL 480 and VOR 640 are both one bedroom models. The THOR 960 has two bedrooms, one up and one down.  The HELA 1280 is a three bedroom unit with two bedrooms on the second floor and one on the first. The THOR and HELA both have two bathrooms, the ALP, SOL, and VOR have just one bathroom each.  I love the fact that they show many of their completed designs with solar panels and rain barrels.

The MEKA World prefabricated shipping container homes are completely finished inside and out.  They are wired, plumbed, and well insulated.  Bathroom fixtures are installed, as are kitchen cabinets.
