Can You build this Pop-Up House in Four Days with a Screwdriver?





Refrigerator.com reports on a pop-up house you can build in four days with a screwdrivers. As wild as the claim may be, there has been a great deal of momentum in creating pre-fab homes, and pre-fab home modules. This trend has been covered and supported extensively by Dwell Magazine/

In this case, the home, called Passivhaus ("Passive House") was designed by MultiPod Studio. According to Refrigerator.com:

The Marseille-based design firm has come up with a prototype called the Pop-Up House—made out of wood, foam, and screws—that you can supposedly assemble with just a basic screw gun.

According to the designers, the whole shebang should cost about €200 per square meter, or roughly $26 per square foot. Right now, the MultiPod website showcases two different styles of the Pop-Up House: a single-room, 70-square-meter rectangular cube and a 150-square-meter prototype with two wings (think bedrooms) on either side of a larger connecting room.

Not only does this pop-up building have interesting potential as a home, or temporary shelter, but also as a pop-up restaurant, cafe, gallery or museum.
