Pop-Up House: The Affordable Passive House

A French architecture firm Multipod Studio has taken the DIY concept of Ikea one step further by designing a recyclable prefabricated house that can be built with a simple screwdriver. While building an average home takes many months to build, the PopUp House can be built in a week. Sounds pretty amazing and too good to be true, right? This project became reality and the PopUp House is made from recyclable materials including treated wood, insulation blocks and wood screws. In addition, it has a highly modern design that can be customized according to everyone’s needs, not to mention its affordable price. The model home, also featured in the video, has a bit more than 148 square meters, two bathrooms, an office, three bedrooms and an open space. So far, the PopUp houses are only available in France, but soon they will be available in the United States and England too. So if you’ll want to learn more about this cool project and start making plans for your own PopUp houses’ design, make sure you check out the video and link below.

    Looks great but i didn’t see any water in the house, nor a bathroom, how many sq ft is it?

    Not gonna work up north where you’ve got to worry about snow load on the roof during the winter. Roof is too flat. I’d consider it in the south, though. Nice pleasing design.

    I would love this here in sunny Queensland, Australia – customising it to open up those side boxes for air flow and putting overhanging eaves all round for the rain. Love it!
