Wikkelhouse, by Dutch design firm Fiction Factory, says their homes can last up to 100 years, needs no foundation, and due to the corrugated cardboard wrapped layers, has premium insulation properties as well. The basic design is described as a “micro home”, but because of its modular design, the size is really up to the homeowner and their budget.
Currently they are only available in a limited number of European countries, but the concept is certainly intriguing and they are designing an off grid specific model for the near future. The design only takes a day to assemble, and because it is lightweight and can be taken apart again, they are easy to relocate.
This design could certainly find a niche in the tiny house movement, off grid living communities, or even as office space, guest housing, and a variety of others uses.
So now that you've learned more about this shelter, is it something you would consider investing in if it were to become available in the U.S.? Even though it's not yet available doesn't mean it isn't something you can try to build on your own.
