About Us

Mother Fortress is an international real estate development company headquartered in Houston, TX. Mother Fortress builds innovative, luxury bunker spaces to live, work, and play by recycling shipping containers and combining them with sustainable and LEED-approved materials. Our disaster-proof homes, offices, and communities will provide work opportunities and boost the economy.

Why Mother Fortress?

  • Our modern, creative container homes, offices, and communities will have reflective glass, luxury landscaping, container pools, with an option to build underground
  • Backyard Garden or Greenhouse: plant fruits, vegetables and herbs local to the community
  • Community Garden: Plant a fruit or vegetable tree for each new homeowner in the community
  • Solar Energy Sources, Thermal Heating, Wind Electricity, Contained Sewage Treatment, Water Harvesting and Food Production
  • Security First- Top of the line security features throughout the home; Fortress-Style fencing
  • Weather-Modified per Location- Tailor each home to which part of the world they live in, and what natural disasters occur in that particular area (ex. Earthquake, Hurricane, Tornados, Blizzards, Wildfires, etc.)
  • Underground Development- As above, so below. With containers, we can dig and build underground for a dynamic and bunkered mansion

Mother Fortress will offer online customization using the Planner 5d tool. This will allow us to provide basic or standard templates for clients to put together, mix & match.

  • For every Mother Fortress home sold, Mother Fortress will develop an affordable tiny home for a family in need.

Mother Fortress will contribute to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal #1 of No Poverty with the Hadnot Housing “One-for-One” Program, as we provide a tiny home or tiny home community for every Mother Fortress development sold.

U.N. Sustainable Development Goal #1

Eradicating poverty in all its forms remains one of the greatest challenges facing humanity. As of 2015, about 736 million people still lived on less than US$1.90 a day; many lack food, clean drinking water and sanitation.  New threats brought on by climate change, conflict and food insecurity, mean even more work is needed to bring people out of poverty. The SDGs are a bold commitment to finish what we started, and end poverty in all forms and dimensions by 2030. This involves targeting the most vulnerable, increasing basic resources and services, and supporting communities affected by conflict and climate-related disasters.

Mother Fortress will contribute to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal #7 of Affordable and Clean Energy by investing in solar power, thermal heating, wind electricity, contained sewage treatment, water harvesting and food production.

U.N. Sustainable Development Goal #7

Between 2000 and 2018, the number of people with electricity increased from 78 to 90 percent, and the numbers without electricity dipped to 789 million. Yet as the population continues to grow, so will the demand for cheap energy, and an economy reliant on fossil fuels is creating drastic changes to our climate. Investing in solar, wind and thermal power, improving energy productivity, and ensuring energy for all is vital if we are to achieve SDG 7 by 2030. Expanding infrastructure and upgrading technology to provide clean and more efficient energy in all countries will encourage growth and help the environment. 

Mother Fortress will contribute to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal #11 of Sustainable Cities and Communities as we develop ecological-friendly homes, offices, and communities where residents can enjoy green parks and trails, organic gardens, and spaces built with natural, recyclable, LEED-certified materials.

U.N. Sustainable Development Goal #11

By 2050, two-thirds of all humanity—6.5 billion people—will be urban. Sustainable development cannot be achieved without significantly transforming the way we build and manage our urban spaces. The rapid growth of cities—a result of rising populations and increasing migration—has led to a boom in mega-cities, especially in the developing world, and slums are becoming a more significant feature of urban life. Making cities sustainable means creating career and business opportunities, safe and affordable housing, and building resilient societies and economies. It involves  creating green public spaces, and improving urban planning and management in participatory and inclusive ways.
