Portable and Foldable Tiny House

The company who makes this tiny house is called Habitaflex, and you might actually consider it a small house instead of a tiny one.

Because it folds out large enough for an entire family to live in. It uses a crank system to fold and unfold.

Plus keys to turn to lock and unlock for folding. No foundation is needed because the home can be built into a trailer that you can pull yourself.

It comes with cabinets, kitchen sink, oven, fan, toilet, and a full sized shower.

It would take you 2 to 3 hours for 2-3 people to set it up or put it away.

For rolling the walls together there is a rolling mechanism that is built in. The roof is also lowered by crank.

The width of the house is 8 feet when it’s folded up into a trailer, here watch the video so you can see it for yourself in action…

    Cathryn – not too sure about all the furniture! I hope it’s properly planned to fold along with the whole setup.

    Looking to build something similar but not in house fashion, i have an idea for a fully enclosed collapsible party trailer, like a Christmas card when you open it every thing extends & already bolted to floor and ready for use, then when done, clean and fold & bring home.
    Perhaps we get together and design greatness,
    thanks for your time.

    Once upon a time, Sears sold homes out of a catalog that you put together. Then circle is completing itself.
