Modular Home Provides Quick And Affordable Housing
The easy to assemble structure can be assembled in as little as three hours at a cost of about $1,200
Architect Joshua Woodsman of Pin-Up Houses has built an experimental, modular home built from 21 insulated panels connected by threaded rods, and is currently researching the viability of mass-producing prefabricated mini-homes. Elevated off of the ground—meaning no foundation is necessary—the modular set-up and break-down (as necessary) is simple.
The French color’s which decorate the exterior also divides the interior into three neat folds: a white day-zone (communal area), blue night-zone (bedroom) and red heating-zone (kitchen featuring a wood-burning zone). The hues were inspired by the understanding that red makes you hungry, white promotes purity and blue offers the most soothing experience perfect for sleeping. The entire house cost $1,200 and takes approximately three hours to build.
