OUR TINY FEATURES
The spatial organization is very streamlined and designed for a North American lifestyle. Our mini-homes include:
An almost standard kitchen
A fixed table for 4 people
An incomparable "L" shaped living room
A study and a fireplace
A complete bathroom
Possibility of energy automation
The wheels are hidden by panels that are easily removable in case of a flat tire. Why expose the wheels when you want to associate the tiny home as much as possible to a house. The wheels are often a simple obligation in order to comply with the regulations to offer several possibilities of location.
Access to the lot
In order to make the access to the land as direct as possible, the lowered axles are always chosen thus avoiding the construction of balconies. In addition, the tires deflate to be even closer to the ground. An adaptation of the location is recommended to make sure that the floor is almost level with the ground. It is important for Box Living to design using the least amount of resources possible and thus avoiding infrastructure such as balconies.

The folding roof is practical, it allows to stand on the mezzanine as well as the displacement while respecting the road height limit. The high roof allows to obtain the proportions of a traditional house and especially, to remove the elongated effect of a trailer.
Our primary goal is to offer a product of architectural quality, durable, maintainable and adaptable to different sites and needs, all while maintaining their value.
Our tiny homes are meant to be stationary or semi-stationary. They are not a product for the road like the traditional trailer. Our tiny homes offer a new option ideally fixed for customers who immobilize their traditional trailer made for the road, and who after 3 or 4 years decide on a stationary place. Box Living offers a concept better suited to the new situation.
