Feel like building a small house in just a few days? This is actually possible with a pre-fabricated house that fits together easily to create a beautiful living space in a short matter of time. Even easier to assemble is a Mini House, that packs all the necessities of a cabin or cottage into one small prefab house.
Mini House is designed by the up-and-coming architect Jonas Wagell, and developed in cooperation with the Swedish house producer Sommarnöjen, leader in Scandinavian ecological holiday houses. Designed as a small getaway for you or a guest, it is originally 15 sqm in size with up to 70 sqm in extra floor plan configurations.
Prefabricated house kits have been around for decades, and remain popular with those who seek an ecological and economical solution for getaways or guest houses. Companies like Deltec Homes and LivingHomes create these houses based on your requirements, and usually ship the materials in a flat pack form for you to assemble. Although, many companies offer or require the structures to be built by their own crew.
Mini House is a modular home, meaning it is meant to remain on a permanent surface (like a regular house). This is different from a manufactured home, which can be moved. Places like Clayton Homes offer both options, depending on your needs. They also offer alternate floor plans, which Mini House does as well; there are many varieties to choose from, and it adds a certain personal touch to your modular home.
Make no mistake, Mini House is not a mere shelter – it offers options for bedrooms, sitting rooms, kitchens, and bathrooms. There is even a beautiful outdoor patio area complete with overhang for lounging around in the fresh air. It is reminiscent of the permanent prefab retreat, the Vipp Shelter, creating a home-away-from-home in order to focus on surroundings while still living in comfort.
Mini House is available for planning and purchase. Check out their website to learn how you can design and build your very own little house.
