$32, 000 does not go very far these days, especially when it comes to real estate. Toronto based architectural firm Meka is changing that, and changing how the world views prefabricated homes. Meka was started in 2009 with a vision in mind: to provide affordable housing options to design-savvy customers. Because the homes are built from containers, they can be shipped anywhere that a regular shipping container can go. And they are eco-friendly; they are completely assembled in a factory and made from more than 70% recycled materials. Since they pretty much just need to be dropped into place and assembled, they leave a much smaller environmental footprint than other types of homes.
