When the family decides it is time to expand, four more modules will be manufactured and shipped to the site, where they can easily hook into the existing home. Existing exterior doors will become interior doors to the other side of the house, and the home will include multiple bedrooms and bathrooms. Future additions are challenging and often costly in most custom and prefab homes, but if the addition is planned from the beginning, the overall design is more efficient and cohesive. The cost for the basic 75 sq meter home is 200,000€, but this amount decreases as the size of the home increases.
