Hot property: Pop Up a flat-pack home

22.06.2010 Homestead 3.0 : Hacked Home : The Hacked Home

Petaluma, California – A new Pop-Up House concept lets people customise their own prefabricated house.

After customers choose the doors, the layout and the furniture to go with it, houses are shipped flat-packed and ready to assemble.

Committed to creating affordable green housing, architect Hally Thacher designed the Pop-Up House to deflect heat, saving customers around $10,000 (£6,745 at current exchange rates) in energy costs over 10 years. The roof construction allows for good air circulation to enable natural cooling.

For more on the future of the home, read our Homestead 3.0 report.
