Off-Grid House Made Of Recycled Steel Goes Anywhere

The Homestead House is an off-grid prefab concept made from recycled steel by designer Michael Jantzen. The house makes use of prefabricated, commercially available steel which makes it both low in cost and extremely modular. In fact, it makes the size and shape of the structure completely customizable - not to mention really tough! And the house is fully recyclable as it can be easily torn down and erected in different location.
