IKEA has teamed up with Oregon-based architecture firm Ideabox to launch IKEA’s first line of prefabricated houses in the U.S. called Aktiv. The homes are designed to be simple, Eco-friendly, and come fully furnished. Retail price is expected to be around US$79,500. I see some potential here, but I am curious to see how the houses perform, and to read more about the design considerations. Is it energy efficient? Are there Eco-upgrades? Do you have to assemble it yourself?
