Easy to Build Modular Home

ext

The Chinese firm People’s Architecture Office (PAO) has created yet another ingenious home design, which proves yet again that houses don’t need to be hard to build, and that it doesn’t need to take a long time to construct them. The so-called Plugin Tower pictured above would be delivered to the build site it a kit made up of modular parts that the future inhabitant just needs to put together. The homes are easy to construct, and easy to take apart and move to a new location if needed. (more…)

Prefab Micro Home That Can be Moved Around Easily

side

Kodasema, a firm from Estonia, is busy designing a tiny prefab home, which according to them can be assemble on-site in only seven hours. The home will be made of concrete, and is expected to cost around $110,000. It will also be made in a way that allows it to easily be disassembled and moved to a new location if needed.

They’re calling this home Koda, and it will measure only 326 sq ft (30.3 sq m). It’s built out of prefabricated sections made of concrete. However, only 317 cubic feet of concrete are needed to build the entire home, so despite using this material instead of a more sustainable alternative, the construction of this home still won’t leave a huge carbon footprint. No foundation is necessary on-site, and the home can be placed on a wide variety of surfaces, including asphalt and gravel, so long as it can provide a level footing. Once it’s assembled it can’t exactly be towed around, but they do claim disassembling the home with a view towards relocating it, only takes about seven hours, though a truck and crane are needed in the process.

A Home Made Out of Cardboard

ext

The Holland-based firm Fiction Factory have recently unveiled a modular home, which is built out of layered cardboard. While the latter is not quite the top choice of building material, the architects claim that the home will last for up to 100 years, which is quite a bold statement. The home is called Wikkelhouse (which translates to “wrapper house”) and due to the modular way of construction, it can be built in virtually any size the owner wants. (more…)

The firm Big World Homes from Australia have designed a tiny modular home that is shipped flat-packed, and can be assembled by two people in just a couple of days using only a drill and a hammer. It will also be a lot cheaper than the alternatives.
