Based in San Francisco, start-up Avava Systems designs tiny homes called Britespaces that can be built in four to six weeks. These are shipped flat-packed, and then they work with third-party construction crews to complete the build of the homes.
This spring the company launched three models ranging in price from $117,000 to $223,000, which includes permit fees, construction and contractor services.
The model numbers reflect the square footage of each home: 264, 352, and 480. The first two are studios, the third is a one-bedroom home. The 264 is shipped in 64 boxes, as businessinsider informs MHProNews.
Featuring concrete foundations and pine frames, the pre-cut components fasten into place, with the option to customize the size, finishes, window and trim color, cabinets, counters and flooring.
The bedroom has a high ceiling, giving the feel of a larger space as does all the natural light from the large windows. The 20 sq ft bathroom includes a shower, toilet and sink.
Each home can also include rooftop solar panels, a battery pack to store solar energy and an electric water heater. CEO Benjamin Kimmich intends to eventually design a dyi (do it yourself) home that anyone with basic handyman skills can assemble.
