The 10 Prefab Models of Pop-Up Houses
The aim of the Pop-Up House, which comes in the ten predetermined models/layouts shown below, is to provide high performance, well-insulated buildings effectively and efficiently.
The patented approach to passive construction delivers outstanding thermal insulation at an affordable cost. No special tools are required. The house is assembled using lightweight and recyclable materials for quick installation. The materials used are inexpensive so the cost remains unbeatable and the thermal envelope created means no additional heating is necessary.
