Swedish home furnishings giant IKEA has teamed up with Oregon-based firm Ideabox to launch IKEA’s first line of prefabricated houses in the U.S. called ‘Aktiv’ (Swedish for active). The one bedroom homes are designed to be eco-friendly, built with a fiber-cement siding and corrugated metal. The homes are also furnished with a complete IKEA package that includes TUNDRA maple flooring, PAX wardrobes and ABSTRAKT cabinets. A model of the home was on display at the Portland Home & Garden Show and each unit is expected to be priced at US$79,500. See some slideshows of the home below. (Via designtaxi.com).
