Truly affordable housing

As I realize, that I may never own a home. It made me take a step back and think about what I can afford. I can afford really cheap land (around Hamilton) and because I come from an architecture/interior design background, I can design and build my dream home…on a budget.

This is coming off the heals of Muji announcing that they are setting out to create affordable tiny pre-fabricated homes for about £20,000. They are not the first ones to tackle this issue of space and price.

In a bid to solve the UK’s housing crisis, Estonian design collective Kodasema has launched its prefabricated 25-square-metre micro home that takes less than a day to build and can be relocated to make use of vacant sites. The Koda house costs just £150,000 as a package – including the cost of planning and building regulations, as well as delivery, site preparation, installation and connections to water, electricity and sewage.
