Artist Jerome Levin describes his METAPOD as "A model for sustainable and affordable housing for environmentally friendly dwellers." Inhabitat writes that the 125 square foot micro-house has "a study area, an entertainment space, surround sound, in-wall speakers, wiring, surveillance and intercom, iPod connectivity, and handcrafted collapsible oak loft bed"

Inhabitat also notes that it "can also be adapted for use as a sustainable, affordable, and off-grid housing alternative." That might be a bit of a stretch given that it doesn't have a kitchen or a bathroom, and the materials list is dead standard, but it's nice small house eye candy and a lovely garden office/ getaway.

Materials:
Frame construction structure
Concrete foundation - Sonotube footing
Hurricane straps reinforcement
LP SmartSide siding panels
Asphalt shingles
sheetrock interior
Laminate flooring
Fiberglass insulation
Cedar trim
Red oak furniture
