September

During the month of September we worked on the windows for our ModernBlox prototype, the DemoBlox. We are still working on Phase 2 but making steady progress towards the unit’s completion. Windows are very important in any home, whether it is made of containers or not. Windows enable enough sunlight to enter the interior space and provides proper ventilation for residents, guests, and pets. So, this month, we dedicated our time working on windows. Yay!

If you want to know more about ModernBlox, you can visit our website. You can also follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Google+ and YouTube.

ModernBlox for a Modern Homecoming

Hello ModernBloxers,

As all four of our founders are alumni of Oklahoma State University (Stillwater) we’d be remiss to not show up for our alma mater’s annual Homecoming. So how does ModernBlox make a hallmark of American university culture into a Modern Homecoming? Here’s how: we’ll be there looking to hear from you on how ModernBlox meets your needs and share our vision of green, economical, sturdy construction. So whether you are looking for housing, industrial space, office space, or an amazing idea so innovative no one has seen it before, we want to hear from you.

ModernBlox is about our environment, our customers, and making something lasting for future generations. So come visit us this October, meet our founders, and be ready to exchange ideas–because making affordable eco-friendly construction doesn’t matter if you’re out of the loop.

We want to change the world one block at a time, and we need you to be a part of it.

Modern Funding

Hello ModernBloxers,

We are excited to announce that ModernBlox has received seed funding for our company! With our first substantial influx of funding we are hard at work getting our prototype off the ground–but that isn’t all. In the coming weeks and months we will be revealing more details of our future plans and partnerships. With our initial funding secured we can do a number of things, including planning more ambitious projects, and move forward our business timeline. So if you need a project done and are looking to have your very own ModernBlox, give us a call. We’re open for business.
