HOW IT WORKS
Boxabl room technology is based on three key inventions:
ROOMS THAT CONNECT
The Boxabl room floor plan is based on a grid system. By placing windows, doors and other elements strictly on the grid system multiple rooms can easily connect together.
Connecting on the grid enables hallways, doors and windows to easily line up in thousands of different combinations to create almost anything. The system is similar to a favorite childhood toy, Lego.
ROOMS THAT PACK
A house is made up of rooms and rooms are mostly empty space. Generally less than 40% of a typical room is fitted with space-consuming fixtures like, bathrooms, kitchens, closets, stairs and HVAC systems.
The remaining 60% is simply empty space.
Boxabl’s patented packing technology innovation allows that 60% empty space to simply be folded into itself so that we aren’t shipping empty space. With this breakthrough, it is less expensive to ship a finished house than it is to ship raw materials to a building site.
A Boxabl room is too big to transport, so the room packs down in a few simple steps for easy shipment.

ROOMS THAT SHIP
By bolting wheel sets to each end of a packed Boxabl room it becomes readily transportable to most places around the world by pick-up truck.
With Boxabl packing tech, it costs about the same to ship a finished home, as it would to ship raw materials to site for a traditional stick build.
Boxabl rooms require a less specialized driver than a regular home construction and use fewer drivers to get the job done.
The Boxabl solution means rooms pack down to become a standard trailer load, allowing them to ship using standard shipping infrastructure by land, sea, rail and even air.
Boxabl’s packing technology is so effective that even a modern pickup truck can tow a Boxabl room, which weigh only between 8,000 to 12,000 lbs, depending on level of finish.
