TAUCO Foldable Houses


TAUCO Foldable Houses allow floor range from 3X5.8m to 6.7x11.8m with wall height of 2440mm, and could be made up to 3000mm high.
Transportable homes usually require huge planning and cost for the end user. We greatly reduce this problem and cost. It’s good for tight spots. We can also complete offsite and truck onto site.
These TAUCO Foldable Houses change the rule of games in the affordable housing supplying.
We make it possible for our smaller models to be moved again at a later date. This also means that caravan park owners can install cabins without the huge transport costs.
Time saving - generally we can complete the cabin within 2 weeks onsite depending on delivery method.

TAUCO Foldable House Solutions are based on a teamwork of Light Gauge Steel Design, Engineering, Logistics and Certifications

History of R & D

After 8 years of R&D and practice, TAUCO developed a Foldable Prefab House system that is being engineered to be transportable and make local authority approval easier, which allows us to offer light gauge steel framed structures at reasonable prices. The solutions include teamwork in innovative Light Gauge Steel Design, Engineering, Logistics and Certification.

TAUCO foldable houses are 60-70% finished in the factory before delivery, in which the structure is completely assembled, wall panel, roof and ceiling, door and windows are installed, and electric wiring and plumbing are embedded.

Transportable homes usually require massive planning and cost for the end user. We significantly reduce this problem and cost. It’s suitable for tight spots. We can also complete offsite and truck onto the site.
