This unique kit helps young people explore the alternative housing movement. Like the KELVIN® Tiny House Kit (842551), our Off The Grid: Shipping Container House Kit focuses on the architectural and construction concepts involved in converting shipping containers into small energy efficient homes.
Using a 1/2 in. = 1 ft. 0 in. scale, students will design the interior floorplan and exterior features for a 160 square foot shipping container home. For example, a 20 in. scale model is equivalent to a 40 ft. shipping container house.
The model will be made from precut and scored chipboard. Window, door and siding images are provided along with furniture 3D templates and interior wall materials. Optional add-ons include: Solar Electric System Kit (842557) and Hot Water Heater Kit (842556).
