Off the shelf housing

Furniture giant IKEA partnered with Ideabox, an architecture firm, to create the new flat pack house called activ. The one bedroom, one bathroom house  costs $86,500 – land not included.

It’s not clear how much of the aktiv is pre-fabricated and how much is site-built. The compact home integrates IKEA cabinets, countertops, and other home decor  to maximize the 745 square foot floor plan.
