Mobile Living: Modern Shed – ‘The DW’ (Dwelling On Wheels) – “An Amazing Off-Grid Tiny Home”

Having provided customers with small backyard spaces for over two decades, Modern Shed has taken the next step in small space innovation. One that can be taken with you wherever you go. Introducing the DW (dwelling on wheels). This is more than a mobile shed on wheels.

Modern-Shed was born from builders and dreamers—idealists and pragmatic problem-solvers. The Modern Shed team was inspired to embark on a creative project in 2020–creating their first-ever portable dwelling. Drawing on their design/build expertise, the team created a beautiful, self-contained space big enough to call home, yet small enough to take anywhere: The Dwelling on Wheels –the DW– was born. A classic gable form creates a recognizable home, with wall-to-ceiling window placements maximizing landscape views and sunlight.

The Details

The resilient, low-maintenance envelope is contrasted by a bright and spacious wood interior and sustainable linoleum flooring. The DW offers room for three with a large bed–just a few inches short of a queen–tucked below a twin in the sleeping area. Thoughtfully designed, built-in storage accommodates small living while the glass wall orients the structure to capture the horizon in the living room.

With a solar array on the roof equipped with batteries, and a wood stove to provide warmth, the DW is equipped to be used off-grid. The dwelling comes with two electric wall heaters as a backup, and is ready to accommodate water tanks or a composting unit.

The DW exemplifies Modern-Shed’s values: creating beautiful dwellings efficiently, sustainably, and cleverly.

Future Housing: Living ‘Off-Grid Modular’ In Southwest Australia

“I think it strikes a chord with people, living off the grid and being minimalist. I could build a McMansion…but it wouldn’t be interesting.” 

Each project is designed specifically for your spatial requirements, budget and site. Design and finish options are limitless, but every design is the result of genuine collaboration with you. We operate from our modular construction hub in Brooklyn, Victoria which includes an impressive factory used for manufacturing the modules. The rapid off-site modular construction forces a high level of documentation – which in turn means a higher degree of design resolution and greater control of the cost for you. The factory environment ensures the risk of weather and site delays are eliminated, allowing for a fixed timeline for design, construction and delivery. It also ensures a consistent level of quality.

We’re one of Australia’s leading off-site construction companies and with Modscape, you will get:

  • Innovative architecture that uses quality materials at a fixed price
  • A tightly controlled construction process that still allows for high levels of customisation
  • A modern, sustainable modular building that minimises environmental impact, but doesn’t compromise on design or quality
  • A project that is brought to life by the one team
  • An enjoyable and stress-free building process.

INNOVATIVE HOMES: “OFF-THE-GRID CONTAINER HOME” IN NEW ZEALAND (VIDEO)

One of the major advantages of shipping container homes is that they can be constructed off site and transported to remote locations. That’s exactly what has happened with this spectacular home which has been built using a 40ft shipping container. Situated in the hills overlooking the ocean and with mountain views of the South Island in New Zealand, this home is simply breathtaking. It’s remote location has meant that off-the-grid living is essential and the home is powered by an impressive solar system.

Future Housing & Living: Off-Grid “Ecocapsule” – “Spectacular Innovation”

The Ecocapsule is an egg-shaped, mobile dwelling that utilises solar and wind energy. Sona Pohlova and Tomáš Žáček created the original design in 2014 for an American client “who had a big ranch where he didn’t have any infrastructure and he needed some living units for visitors”.

They didn’t win the project, but were published worldwide and received requests from people to buy it. They weren’t prepared for the reaction, but they spent 5 years turning their plans into a prototype.

Today they are selling their EcoCapsule – complete with shower and toilet, sleeping area for two, and kitchenette – to anyone looking to “stay in the nature for long time, for example scientists, photographers, rangers or extreme tourists” or someone interested in installing one on a city rooftop.

The pods are highly mobile: they can easily be pulled by a pickup truck or even airlifted by helicopter (for those rooftop needs). The units capture sun energy (PV) as well as their own rainwater (and grey and blackwater). There’s even an app-controlled smart-home system and sensors that help you monitor your energy and water use.
