The structure of the Pop-Up House is made from insulating blocks and wooden panels – a unique low-cost system patented by Multipod Studio that provides outstanding thermal insulation. The materials used in the construction are inexpensive, while the thermal envelope reduces the need for additional heating.

The construction requires no special tools except for a screwdriver since the Pop-Up House snaps together like Lego bricks. The entire building is constructed by assembling insulation blocks separated by wooden boards using long wood screws. This type of assembly allows for a 100 percent removable and recyclable solution.

    You can find more info on the house at http://www.popup-house.com. It looks like the house panels cost 200 m/2 times the house size 150m/2. I came up with 30K Euros converted to USD 41,400K plus land, interior fixtures, exterior finishes, electrical, plumbing and heating system. For the energy savings it seems like a decent option. All totaled, it may not be much cheaper than a standard stick build of comparable size in a rural American community. House size is approx. 1600 sq. ft. Still, very interesting. Only thing that is a worry for me is the flat roof. An angled roof would be better for mid-western America.
