The Big Box homes are a series of tiny prefab homes, developed by the London-based practice Bert and May Group, that can be set up in as little as a single day. The firm has gone to great lengths to create four different versions of its home, ranging from a 46-square meter two-bedroom family home all the way down to a 7.7-square meter tiny home.

Each of these tiny prefab homes was created by the Bert and May Group in collaboration with nearby architectural studio Box 9 Design and took 14 weeks to manufacture. While these aren't the first tiny prefab homes to be created, they stand out because of the use of eco-friendly materials, availability of structural insulation and a rustic aesthetic appeal.

Ultimately, these homes show that tiny prefab homes can be functional and eco-friendly but also aesthetically appealing.
