Inquire for details and check out our photo gallery to see the variations. Our team is constantly implementing innovative ideas to expand the concept of what a BoxHouse can be.

Can I customize my own BoxHouse?

While BoxHouses are not customizable at the factory level, this deliberate design choice stems from our commitment to delivering affordable housing solutions. These models are crafted with a standardized approach to ensure cost-effectiveness, resulting in a somewhat “cookie-cutter” configuration. However, it’s worth noting that post-purchase customization options may be available to cater to individual preferences and needs, and that we do have multiple layouts available.

What about utilities?

Like an RV, a BoxHouse can be hooked up to standard utilities. Additionally, we offer solar packages for off-grid living!

What about AC / Heating?

Each BoxHouse comes with an energy-efficient mini-split for heating and air conditioning.

How energy efficient is a BoxHouse?

We understand the importance of energy efficiency and sustainability, so our BoxHouses are equipped with energy-efficient tankless water heaters, mini-split systems, and clothes dryers. All BoxHouse roofing features a protective layer of roVa Shield Aerogel Insulation Coating, generously applied to guarantee long-lasting durability. We apply closed-cell insulation to ensure your home is comfortable and environmentally friendly. Additionally, you can use tint and/or low emissivity windows to optimize energy efficiency, helping you save on utility bills while ensuring your privacy and creating a cozy, inviting atmosphere.
