Recyclable Mini House Assembles in Two Days

May 30th, 2015 Comments off

mini_house_jonas_wagell__gizmag__andy_liffnerSwedish architect Jonas Wagell has designed a modular home that is delivered flat-packed and requires only two days to assemble on site. The design includes an insulating polystyrene core clad with plywood or plastic laminate. The Mini House modules consist of prefabricated walls, framing, roofing and trim-less windows.

Wagell tells gizmag all the materials used in the construction can be recycled or combusted. The 161 square-foot modular does not require a building permit within Scandinavia, and the structure includes a 161 square-foot outdoor terrace with a pergola. Sliding glass doors open onto the terrace.

Updated versions will be available in several sizes ranging up to 753 square feet, and MHProNews has learned options will include energy efficient features as well as photovoltaic panels. ##
