The Lifepod project is an ongoing development by Kyu Che, an interdisciplinary environment designer involved with architecture, design, and the visual arts, who describes it as: "The best of 21st century automotive, aeronautic, nautical, and RV technologies are utilized to create a simply assembled fully functioning high tech mini capsule for living." It's highly portable and inspired by both the traditional Mongolian Ger and mammals as the structural system is a "quadrupedal fuselage" with adjustable footings for uneven land. All the modular bits and pieces fit into a 40ft container. It proudly states it is very much off-grid. I particularly like the look of the Balipod pictured below.
Here's an inside shot.
And here's what it would look like if you owned a forest.
Thanks to been-seen who have a nice section called Go Cabin featuring lots of other shedlike atmospheres.
