Portable solar powered home can travel with you and takes only 4 hours to assemble
There’s something romantically independent about the notion of owning your own small, easy to build, modular home.
You, your family, and friends can assemble the new abode all by yourselves; you can put whatever you need in the home and get rid of anything you don’t want. And all you need to do is buy a plot of land and…well, that’s it. With the housing market what it is now, too, it’s easy to understand the appeal of people looking for low-cost, simple living solutions.
And if you’re one of the many who’ve got the modular home bug, then you’re going to love this little house.
KODA’s a tiny, pre-fabricated home that is infinitely movable and has off-the-grid capabilities.
Oh, and it’s entirely solar-powered, too.
The primarily concrete home can be broken down and re-assembled in about four hours, which means that within a day you can up and live in another state if you wanted.
It’s also comprised of eco-friendly and sturdy factory made parts that are infinitely interchangeable and extremely energy efficient.
The concrete walls are vacuum-insulated and triple-glazed to help regulate the temperature inside KODA and help make this little home stand without the need for a foundation.
And because of KODA’s strength, you can piece together multiple units for a larger home or stack them on top of each other.
The 260 square-foot home utilizes its open living plan well along with the huge glass facade that lets in light and assists in warming the home.
The kitchen, bedroom, and loft bedroom are put towards the back of the home for more privacy and are lit by LEDs at night.
The home also comes with a built in IT-system that monitors its climate and surroundings and adjusts home settings accordingly.
KODA’s also outfitted with water, sewage, and electricity hookups in addition to its off-grid usage – and it even comes with furniture!
KODA’s currently planned to go on sale in Estonia for $95,000 a unit. Unfortunately, there aren’t plans to sell it internationally.
But that doesn’t mean a worldwide release is entirely ruled out, either.

And if you think you can build your own KODA, all of the blueprints were uploaded online too, so go nuts.
So awesome. (h/t inhabitat)
