Kodasema, an Estonia-based construction firm, wants your prefab home to be set and ready to go in record time.

The furnished house will come in three different models: ‘Koda for Living,’ ‘Koda for Studying,’ and ‘Koda for Working,’” said Taavi Jakobson, co-founder of Kodasema.

They will function as homes, classrooms, and offices respectively.

The 269 square-foot cubes can be assembled in less than seven hours, and disassembled in four hours.

According to Jetson Green, the homes features an open plan living and kitchen area, as well as a bathroom with a toilet and bath/shower on the ground floor. The second floor houses the bedroom and laundry room and the homes also boast of a number of sustainability and efficiency features.

No on-site foundation is required and the Koda can be placed on several surfaces, as long as they are level.

Business Insider reports that 150 Kodas will available to order online in Estonia starting in late 2017, with prices starting at €120,000 (currently about $132,500 USD).



The company might expand sales internationally if we can manage to ramp up production,” said Jakobson.


The Daily Business News has covered newer Prefab homes recently, including the work done by Revolution PreCrafted Homes, where Eric Trump sits on the board of directors. ##
