The design firm has created four different versions of its prefabricated Big Box home, ranging from a 46-sq m (495-sq ft), two-bedroom family home, down to a 7.7-sq m (82-sq ft) tiny home. Created in collaboration with local architectural studio Box 9 Design and taking 14 weeks to manufacture, the fully-functional tiny dwellings boast a rustic appeal, eco-friendly materials, structural insulation and a green roof.
The Bert and May Group was inspired to design the Big Box home from its firm belief that everyone should have access to an affordable and sustainable home without compromising on space or quality. The design of the Big Box home therefore has a strong focus on storage space, efficient heating, insulation, abundance of natural light and good air flow. Furthermore, each home has been built using reclaimed and sustainable materials, such as weathered barn oak for the exterior and interior walls, reclaimed timber for the flooring, double glazed aluminum doors and toughened glass windows.
