Ikea launches/debuts its new prefab/small modern home kit… "The Aktiv"

One bedroom, completely pre-fabricated, and it comes FULLY FURNISHED…..an Ikea Home Kit…

Dual flush toilets, fiber-cement siding, energy star appliances, a single bedroom and more, make it a brand new green option on the market for “small” homes. Ikea just launched this kit model, dubbed “The Aktiv”, and designed by Oregon Architects. Its listed at $79,500. I don’t see and precise square footage listed at this point though, but will update this…

My personal take- aesthetically, while I LOVE alot of Ikea’s stuff, I’m not blown away, at least with my first impression- although the layout makes pretty solid sense….and as a package deal, I’d see this being VERY attractive to many people.

Well….One problem I see off the bat- overnight guests, they have to cut through your bedroom to get to the bathroom….   -Derek “Deek” Diedricksen

Thanks to Christopher King- from ole’ DHHS for pointing out the initial info/release on this…..

I agree with the bath problem you pointed out and that plumbing needs are on opposite ends of the unit (could be better designed). But as a fan of IKEA, I'm excited that they would consider stepping into pre-fabs in the States. Maybe someone will perfect the design and expand on the options by the time we're ready to downsize.
