This Lego-style Home Can Be Built In Four Days With Just A Screwdriver

If you’ve ever fantasized about living in a real-life Lego home, your dream could finally come true.French architecture firm Multipod Studio recently unveiled a prototype for the PopUp House, a customizable home made from stackable blocks. It can be designed, ordered, and built in about a month.

Check out the design for the first homes, located in the pine valleys of Southern France.

The PopUp House, which can be ordered online, costs between $1,200 and $1,900 per square meter, depending on the quality of the materials and amenities. Once a home is ordered, the firm sends along building instructions (an additional $1,640 fee) and a construction team.

It’s completely customizable. “A PopUp House can be whatever you wish it to be: a small and cozy country lodge, an urban two-story house, or a spacious open office,” co-founder Corentin Thiercelin tells Tech Insider.

Building a PopUp House is a lot like building with Legos. Each house is made from stacked recyclable wooden panels and insulation blocks, all held together with wood screws.

A construction team can build it in four days with only an electric screwdriver. It can be disassembled just as quickly.

Currently, PopUp House is only available in France, but Thiercelin says the company plans to expand to the UK and the US. The firm is searching for local architects and home builders to work with PopUp House to make sure that the homes are in line with local building codes.

PopUp House is part of a growing sustainable architecture movement called passive construction. The architecture concept describes homes that are well-designed, low-cost, and energy-efficient. The PopUp House is airtight and watertight, which means it keeps heat locked in.
