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.

    If you are living in the US and interested in this product, we create a demountable wall system that is on currently the market, from which you can assemble many structures similarly within hours. Just a solution for those of you in need of this solution and since this project is in conceptual phase and not in the US currently. Check us out and tell your friends:

    At this stage the design is CONCEPT ONLY (according to the website), and will only be available in EUROPE initially, IF the proposal gets funding presumably or is authorized. There are no building plans, kits, contracts OR prices available to the general public. You can find more details here –

    Very impressed, looking forward to see them in the North American market soon!

    You can find more info on the house at 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.
