Imagine creating small business solutions that promote ownership and financial freedom. Imagine a disaster occurs and restoring housing to millions within a short period of time.

Our Products

Products

*Every design can be fabricated as a container or modular prefabricated home.


1. Tiny Homes - There is currently no set definition of what constitutes a tiny house; however, a residential structure under 800 square feet is generally accepted to be a tiny home. Tiny homes represent an architectural and social movement that advocates living simpler.


2. Tiny Shops -  The units are fully functional and self-sufficient with electricity and water. The units can be fully equipped with any type of equipment required to share products with customers. 


3. Tiny Pools - Made from recycled shipping containers, Tiny Pools are cheaper, safer, relocatable, and easier to install compared to standard in-ground or above ground swimming pools.


 Upcoming Products

4. Tinytels - Micro Hotels


5. Tinyparts - Micro Apartments


6. Emergency Preparedness Shelters - Pre and post Disaster

Container structures are  made from the steel shipping containers seen carrying goods worldwide on trains, trucks, and ships. With about 30 million ‘out-of-service’ containers in the world, there is a vast supply available. Tiny In A Box LLC has spent over a year in research, development, and marketing. What we discovered was people are looking for lower construction and maintenance costs. Tiny In A Box LLC address these concern with short construction times and predictable pricing. 


The greatest benefit of a container home is the unique ability to accommodate worldwide infrastructure to be easily transported. Even container home skeptics admit they can be very useful in situations where local building expertise is lacking, or for emergency shelters that can be easily and quickly moved. In these scenarios, the versatility of container transport is a huge advantage.

How Our Products Are Different From the Rest

Why Tiny In A Box?


Our structures offer a tiny solution to some big problems including:


Stalled Personal Progress – Most people struggle to move up in their housing or even move to another city due to the overwhelming cost of new real estate (Sarhan, 2018).


Inflated Prices – It is an undeniable fact that housing prices are going up while wages are struggling to keep up, rendering new housing solutions for families unaffordable and almost impossible (Sarhan, 2018).


Housing Inventory – A boost in building material costs and labor shortage combined with natural disasters such as floods and wildfires have taken a huge chunk of existing inventory out of the market (Sarhan, 2018).


Where does that leave American citizens? Financially over-encumbered, emotionally frustrated, and personally stalled.


What Tiny In A Box Brings To The Table


In just two words, American Dream.


We believe tiny homes are a growing market that is about to explode and provide people with an unquestionably premium solution for their housing and business needs.


More Specifically, Tiny In A Box Promises:


  • Flexibility (Off-Site Construction & World-Wide Delivery)
  • Affordability (Cost-Effective, Eco-Friendly Materials)
  • Convenience (Fewer Permits, Full Customization, Rapid Construction Time)
  • Longevity (Durable Constructions, Portable & Adaptive Designs)

Affordable

Shipping containers provide the space, materials, and functionality of a house very cheaply compared to traditional building materials.

Durable

Due to the material composition shipping container homes, are able to encounter natural disasters. 

Fast Construction 

Building a house the traditional way can take anywhere from four to twelve months. However, building a shipping container home can be done in two months or less. This is because there are fewer building materials to acquire and assemble and because the basic structure of the home is already in place.

Portable

Their unique size is specifically tailored to be carried by large trucks and transported regularly down roads and highways. This is a huge benefit when building a home as they can be delivered quickly and painlessly. Additionally, once the home is built, it can be moved it easily.

Our Market and Industry

Source: Container Port

Source: Manufactured Home Institute

Low-priced DIY houses date all the way back to the 1900s, when Sears home kits (Roebuck houses) were the steal of the century. From 1908 to 1940, Sears sold around 75,000 across the nation, according to the company (Sisson, 2018).


And although smaller house living was slightly popular with artists in the ‘70s and ‘90s, the latest movement didn’t start until 2009, expanding into the early 2010s, when the housing market was facing issues. However, it wasn’t until 2014 that the popular shows “Tiny House, Big Living” and “Tiny House Hunters” premiered on HGTV. That same year, the small city of Spur, Texas declared themselves the first “tiny house friendly town,” offering flexible zoning codes alongside hundreds of vacant lots for building (Container Port, 2018). 


The need for quality, affordable housing has never been greater. Today’s manufactured homes can deliver outstanding quality and performance at prices that are up to 50 percent less per square foot than conventional site-built homes. These savings allow more and more Americans to own their own home, even in the face of a ever-widening housing affordability gap (Manufactured Home institute, 2017) .

What Makes Our Team Special

Tiny In A Box LLC is the purpose given to Shaynea Williams after falling in love with the tiny house movement.


She noticed that the market was missing practical modern designs that were affordable and could be produced to address the housing crisis around the world. 


She envisions providing modern, portable, and affordable modular projects for housing, business solutions, recreation spaces, disaster preparation, and relief housing
