The wood is a great addition, as it is in any kind of format in the market, and also we can customize it easily; the fact that is from 100% natural origin and it’s biodegradable makes it a very powerful ally for any type of green building. In this construction it has been used to coat the entire exterior of it, creating the substructure where the insulating layer is applied. Also the wood has been used to build the roof of the container, this gives an extra space to the house isolating better the living space.

Using the clay they have built some kind of sofa, but with the curious ad-on that one of its sides is a heater made with the same clay, a good point to safe a lot of money wasted in energy. Although clay on some countries is a conventional element used in construction, in the Western culture is not very common to find it.
