Our new C-Shell Homes are the result of many years research and development and we are now creating some of the finest modular homes available today.

The past seven years have seen amazing advances here at Earthcube starting with our first generation homes. At this early stage we took used shipping containers and cut, welded and clad them to create beautiful homes. There were several concerns about this system, had the containers been used for toxic goods? Could we prevent thermal bridging? Could we make old containers last for 100 years?

So after much research we developed the second generation. These homes used new shipping containers as both structure and exterior cladding. But we were still cutting up containers and we had to build a conventional roof across the entire structure. To solve this problem would involve a radically advanced approach. And so the third generation was born…

Instead of cutting up containers whether new or old, we now build from scratch a series of modules, each with the dimensions and engineering of a shipping container, but the entire structure, floor, walls, window / door frames, roof, guttering and downpipes are now seamlessly welded from solid steel to create the third generation in shipping container homes. These are, perhaps, the best modular system available in the world today and are called…

Third Generation Container Homes…  These are something more like a tortoise shell perhaps as openings are engineered in from the start. The advantages are amazing…

Our homes still have the unique blend of advanced technology and fine craftsmanship seen in our integrated cabinetry. This can be traced back to our years in super yacht design and fit out. Our range of  exclusive materials and skills create a unique blend of beauty, strength and spatial integration.

The first third generation homes are now under construction and will be seen at the Fieldays in 2015.
