Italian company offers flat-pack house that can be built in six hours

9 January 2018 | By Joe Quirke 0 Comments

Italian tiny house maker MADi has launched a flat-pack house that can be assembled in six hours by three workers.

The structures can be built without a concrete base, may require no planning permission and come with water, sanitary, electrical, heating, air-conditioning and drainage systems pre-installed.

MADi stand for modulo abitativo dispiegabile, or “unfoldable housing module”. The company says the houses cause no environmental impact, and can be built with temporary screw pile foundations.

Various sizes of home are available. The smallest has a floor space of 27 sq m and costs €28,000, whereas two double models measuring 46 and 56 sq m are available with prices starting at €46,000. Two triple modules measuring 70 and 84 sq m cost €62,000.

At present the standard versions are energy class B but can be upgraded with solar panelling and rainwater collecting systems. The structural material is wood, which can be plaster, aluminum or fibreboard panels.

Delivery is free if under 200km from the M.A.Di factory in Italy.
