FASTPAKS ROOM QUESTIONS
What is a micro room?
A micro room embodies the spirit of “tiny home” living, but is designed to be used as a smaller multi-use room to accommodate a sitting space, sleeping space, working space, a creative space, or whatever your imagination allows. These rooms are stand-alone units not attached to a home and are most commonly less than 200 square feet.
What are the dimensions of a FastPaks room?
Why is a FastPaks room 96 square feet?
FastPaks micro rooms were designed with safety as a top priority. Working with larger micro rooms added safety concerns and assembly issues that we did not believe was in the best interest of our consumers. Additionally, the 96 square foot footprint meets residential size requirements in most areas of the country.
What makes a FastPaks room so special?
FastPaks micro rooms are portable, modular, sustainable, 8x12x10.5-foot structures with a vaulted ceiling. They consist of a steel frame and a variety of removable panels. Multiple units can be configured end-to-end, side-by-side, or both, to provide larger square footage without the need for interior walls. FastPaks can be folded flat, to about 24-inches, for ease of storage and reduced transportation costs. Units are shipped about 70% assembled and can be completely assembled by two people in about two hours. Engineering studies have indicated that FastPaks can withstand significant snow and wind loads and are able to support extremely heavy payloads, making them perfect for use in harsh environments.
FastPaks micro rooms offer numerous, customizable options. They can be outfitted with a variety of panels, from insulated hard-side panels to polycarbonate panels to SunSpace Sunroom WeatherMaster vinyl panels with windows and screens. Other options include a full electrical package, heating and air conditioning, choice of flooring and many others.
FastPaks do not require a foundation, thereby leaving no environmental footprint. And they are reusable; once finished with a current use, simply fold them down and store for future use.
