Assemble Your Tiny Home Faster Than IKEA Furniture with AbleNook

AbleNook Mini Modular House Outdoors

Imagine that you could assemble your home in a matter of hours, as easily as you put together a desk that you bought from IKEA. Imagine that it dissembled more easily than the IKEA desk so that you could take it anywhere, even the harshest of environments.

More sturdy than a trailer, with a more beautiful architectural aesthetic, the AbleNook expandable portable dwelling is a tiny home design that is looking for your help to become a reality for disaster victims, military families, and lovers of sustainable living around the world.

The AbleNook concept shelter is billed as “a rapidly deployable portable structure” of interlocking components that can be put together without tools by just about anyone. Components arrive in a flat-pack box to reduce waste and transportation costs.

Team AbleNook began as part of a summer independent study project and has evolved into a desire to revolutionize dwelling manufacture, deployment, and inhabitation.

Supported by the University of South Florida’s Division of Patents and Licensing, they have filed for a patent on the technology and procured a grant to construct the prototype.

    I would like to see more of the inside plans, as well as how this could be tied down, as is required in many areas known for severe weather. I’m afraid the necessary straps would damage the solar panels. How sturdy are they?

    Fantastic idea.
