Minimod Portable Shelter

The Minimod is a primitive refuge with a modern twist. The Minimod system is composed of modules identical in size but with different functions and purposes to create infinite solutions, limited only by your imagination. Each module measures 27 sq m (290 sq ft), and comprises a lightweight steel frame enclosed by plywood and glass. Each customer can tailor the home to suit their own needs, choose the layout and envision various configurations according to the desired comfort.  Some furniture is included as standard, such as air-conditioning, wardrobe mini fridge, and mini-oven. Lighting is provided by efficient LED bulbs. Each unit will be prefabricated in a factory with a build time of around 45 days, before being transported via truck and placed into position by crane. Its also raised on stilts to avoid ground moisture. An incredibly simple solution for how to efficiently build a dwelling in the middle of a rugged natural environment.
