The e-BODE consists of two or more small, prefabricated modular units protected by a separate over sailing roof, designed to shed rain water quickly and shade the living spaces.
This modern, steel-framed prefab home includes high ceilings with full-height glazing, bathroom and kitchen, timber floors and a wrap-around verandah. It can be used as a holiday retreat, a guest studio, an office or an extension.
Total floor space: Each module measures 3.6 x 14.4 meters and provides an internal floor area of 50 sq.
Green features: Solar panels and grey water treatment can be incorporated for off-grid sites. The over sailing roof offers shade and protection from the sun while supporting a solar water heater. The e-BODE can be easily removed, leaving no trace of its existence in the landscape.
Price: AU$129,000 for a single e-Bode module.
Prefab home design: Modabode.
Manufacturer location: New South Wales, Australia.
