The PopUp House, which can be ordered online, costs between $1,200 and $1,900 per square meter, depending on the quality of the materials and amenities. Once a home is ordered, the firm sends along building instructions (an additional $1,640 fee) and a construction team.

It's completely customizable. "A PopUp House can be whatever you wish it to be: a small and cozy country lodge, an urban two-story house, or a spacious open office," co-founder Corentin Thiercelin tells Tech Insider.

 

 

Building a PopUp House is a lot like building with Legos. Each house is made from stacked recyclable wooden panels and insulation blocks, all held together with wood screws.

A construction team can build it in four days with only an electric screwdriver. It can be disassembled just as quickly.

 

 

The prototype measures 1,614 square feet and features an open layout. A kitchen, dining area, and terrace connect to the living room.

Currently, PopUp House is only available in France, but Thiercelin says the company plans to expand to the UK and the US. The firm is searching for local architects and home builders to work with PopUp House to make sure that the homes are in line with local building codes.
