Solargon: passive solar octagon house


is a Manufacturer of Building Components offering Modern Alternatives to Conventional Building Methods

 Solargon - The Passive Solar Smart Cabin (Official Website) - Solargon Passive Solar Designs from ICS Eco-SIPs

"Even during a mostly cloudy day, the Solargon will gain solar energy and efficiently heat itself without an internal heat source."

​Solargon's Passive solar designs can reduce demand for heat by 60%.

Model 30 (699 square feet octagon)

octagonal shape uses 20% less materials to enclose the same square footage as a standard rectangular home or building. 

Solargons go together very quickly. Erection and seal-in of the structure requires only a few hours for a 20' Solagon and two days for a 30' Solargon. Structural finishes such as flooring, cabinets, fixtures, detailing, and any internal wall construction will take a varying amount of time depending on your choices. It’s reasonable to anticipate being in your completed Solargon within a very few weeks, using an experienced contractor.
