The
Fox Box

Our smallest and most cost-effective cabin

The Fox Box is our smallest and most cost-effective cabin for those who need a simple, elegant space for a sleepout, office space, or studio. At Fox Cabins we believe in creating warm, dry, stylish, and durable living spaces that will withstand the test of time, so every cabin is built to the New Zealand Building Code, to the same standard that you would build your own house.

The Fox Box Cabin is single-story on a 10m2 footprint of 4.2m long by 2.4m wide with an additional 350mm timber clad soffit at the front. A double-glazed Ranch Slider and two 800 high, 700 wide windows as standard, but everything can be customised to your needs. Lined in either painted hardboard (looks like GIB) or any style of ply, and clad in vertical Coloursteel Corrugate the Fox Den has a stylish look and is incredibly durable. We take pride in the fact that all our cabins are insulated above NZ code the new Residential Tenancies Act standards, including the South Island and Alpine zone.  

Our cabins are fully customizable, from lining types, cladding colours to window and door sizes, types and locations, flooring types, skylights, addition of PV solar power, and Heat Pumps.

Construction

All our cabins and Tiny Houses are designed from full 90mm galvanised steel framing which will not warp, hold moisture or rot. Its stronger and lighter than timber framing and unlike timber, is completely recyclable. The Fox Den Cabin is built on two H4, 200x100 bearers.

Insulation

For the steel framing thermal break, we go to ‘best practice’ above code and sheet the entire building with 10mm Expol polystyrene rather than the cheaper method of battens. All insulation is above NZ Building Code and the new Residential Tenancies Act standards, including the South Island and Alpine zone.
