ideabox Review

ideabox is an Oregon-based prefab modular home designer and manufacturer that specializes in smaller home designs, that can be delivered to most of the western half of the Northwest United States. ideabox designs and manufactures the homes, and then the homebuyer is responsible for finding a local contractor who will complete the foundation, sitework, permits, installation, and finishing. ideabox homes are single story, and have smallish footprints, but they maintain the feel of a larger house, using full-size appliances, high ceilings, and strategic layouts to maximize space.

The modern homes are rectangular in shape with asymmetric, sloped roofs, and interior space ranging from 480 sq ft  to 1707 sq ft in size. Owners can customize the cabinets, countertops, and floor materials.


  • Practical layouts - These homes tend to be smaller in size, but they have ample living space with large open social areas

  • Quick delivery - house is built at the same time as the foundation, decreasing the time between project start to finish.

Reasons they may not be for you:

  • You are seeking a more traditional tiny home layout with smaller features.

  • You want a multi-story house

  • You want a more traditional home in size and style.
