ECOSHELTA has long been part of the sustainable building revolution and makes high quality architect designed, environ­mentally minimal impact, pre­fabricated, modular buildings, using latest technologies. Our state of the art building system has been used for cabins, houses, studios, eco-tourism acco­mmodation and villages. We make beautiful spaces, the applications are endless, the potential exciting.

The first of our e.pod projects to use the new composite panel systems for floors, walls and roof elements. The remote rural site in the upper Hawkesbury, 4WD access and steep approach required shipment in smaller hardened vehicles. This cabin was designed as a single E.pod cabin with ensuite and bed side extensions, and large extended deck out to view and north over river. The site has an autonomous site with composting WC, rainwater harvesting, sullage dispersal and stand alone battery storage solar power system. A mezzanine loft and awnings were added later.

      Hi Lucy,

      As a guide, our buildings are usually between $1,950 and $2,350 per sqm inclusive of – base unit, chosen options and fit-out. Full project costs (start to completion) including building cost and allowances for access, transport, services and approvals are usually between $2,500 and $3,500 per sqm.

      This cabin is one e.pod and two side extension units (34.56sqm) so would cost between approximately $67,000 and $81,000 inclusive of base unit and chosen options and fit-outs. Please refer to our FAQ section for further details of some available options.

      Kind regards,
