Affordable - Sustainable Homes

Affordable single family homes that are also zero carbon and also have zero environmental impact are possible if developed, designed and constructed as a circular-sustainable community.  We offer affordable homes that can achieve these goals and many other UN 2030 Agenda benefits . 

4Pillars Sustainable Solutions (4Pillars) has developed low cost and highly sustainable homes that can be afforded by low to middle income families in developing countries.  The homes are built using refurbished shipping containers and fitted out using proven sustainable products and materials to allow the homes to function completely off the power grid and municipal utilities.  The shipping container refurbishment plan allows for the homes to be mass produced and loaded onto a standard truck chassis to be delivered to the home development site, typically within the same day.  The site work consists of a simple concrete block foundation, grey water piping rough-in routed to a raised planter bed and domestic water from the community water service. (site developer provided well and elevated storage).  The home can then be set in place by a crane and secured to the foundation.   An example of a 40 ft container home model is below:
