8bitfuture:

IKEA to sell entire houses.

The IKEA ‘aktiv’ prefabricated one bedroom homes will be entirely furnished with IKEA products, and are expected to sell for $86,500.

The aktiv line is reminiscent of trailers or motor homes — neat little 53 ft. x 14 ft. rectangles packed with funky, oddly named furniture. Ideabox says there’s no wasted space, which makes sense, since there’s not much space to be wasted. A combination of corrugated metal, fiber-cement siding and a metal roof house the mini Ikea wonderland, which comes equipped with a dual-flush toilet and energy-efficient electronics
