Environmental consciousness is becoming more and more critical in today’s day and age. And as finite resources continue to become less available, the need to find alternative solutions for use in a variety of industries is reaching an all-time high. Currently most tiny-homes or cabins are made of wood which depletes our environment and these resources.
While the modular home is not currently an off-the-grid option, it maintains an environmentally friendly build due to the materials and construction process. Those are:
The frame which is made of US Steel. Steel is one of the most durable and environmentally friendly building materials available. Steel is known for its longevity, durability and environmental friendliness. When creating with steel you design to your exact specifications so you have no waste in materials.
The skin of the modular House is made of aluminum. Aluminum is known as the “green” metal because of its sustainability. As the most recyclable industrial material, aluminum can be recycled infinitely to produce the same product. Recycling aluminum also saves 95% of the energy used in its production from raw materials.
The glass is double pane, insulated, impact glass. Glass itself is a recyclable, renewable resource but the glass used in the modular house also promotes the energy efficiency of the Vessel.
Construction Process– In addition to the environmentally friendly materials used in the modular houses our Prefab construction allows for minimal site impact.
Did you know that our structures are built to a 70+ year life cycle and we give with purchase a 30-year manufacturer warranty on the structure of a modular house made right here in the USA.
