15th February 2016 - Building Bricks ...

Thought for the day:" You can't run through a campsite - you can only RAN - because it is past tents"

Here's one for my wife to build - she did such a great job on our garage  - which she thought was the biggest Mecano Set that she had ever seen ... The Lego Style House...

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.

The prototype measures 1,614 square feet and features an open layout. A kitchen, dining area, and terrace connect to the living room.

It also includes two bathrooms, an office, master bedroom, and two smaller bedrooms.

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.

Well - that is one way of getting a house...
Cheers !
