Adult carpet behaviors

I bought an adult Coastal almost a half a month ago. She is very very sweet in temperament. She is 3 years old and about 6 and a half feet. She came with an 80gallon tank. Its a big tank, but kinda small for her size. Plans on building a new cage are becoming a reality. But I somtimes wonder...

Again, she is docile, but I wonder if a bigger cage would even matter? All she does is sit in her hide box. No matter what. Period bar none. She has no interest to explore, even at night. Once, I took the hidebox away for a night, and she explored her cage a little, and slept on her perch I put in. Then I put the box back in and she went back to it and stayed there for 2 days straight until I handled her and put her back in, and all she did was crawl back to her hide box anyway. Would this snake be complacent if I just gave it a little box to live in?! She doesnt seem stressed. Are some snakes just boring? Any info would help out. Thanks
