BuildBoxx Bathroom

Bathrooms and Kitchens are only 20% of a house – but 80% of its complications!

This is where humidity, heat, smells, electricity, plumbing, sewerage all come together.

In contrast, living rooms or bedrooms need little more than a few electricity connections!

So BuildBoxx has created a “kitchen in a box” and “bathroom in a box” that can be used as a cornerstone for an easy (self) building.

Unlike most kitchen “kits”, BuildBoxxes are “structural”: they come as a sturdy “box” that easily connects to walls and roofs.

And they come with dozens of designs for homes that were specifically designed for easy of construction!

BuildBoxxes are also a perfect solution to add luxury to a glamping tent or hotel/motel.

Geodetic Domes

Do you know the Eskimo’s “Igloos”? Geodetic domes are part of a “ball” shaped surface.

The ball shape is the most “efficient” shape in nature: it contains maximum inside space for a minimum outside surface.

Of course, ball-shaped homes are not easy to build (or furnish). But they cán be built with a limited number of different parts, usually forming triangles, pentagons or hexagons. While hundreds of parts may be necessary, you often need only 5 or 6 different parts!

Another advantage is that geodetic domes can take a lot of pressure (wind, snow) with a relatively light structure. Pressures from one side are transferred out over the dozens of ribs, and of course the round shape helps the wind flow around it rather than hit it frontally.

Are geodetic domes smart?

  • creates shelter with a minimum of structure
  • can be made with transparent skins
  • can be made with a limited number of different parts

What are limitations of geodetic domes?

  • not easy to furnish, low ceiling height on the sides
  • not easy to insulate
