Happy Cheap House by Tommy Carlsson Arkitektur Sculptural and Affordable Prefab Home in Sweden

Think cheap houses are boring and lacking inspiration? Think again! The “Happy Cheap” prototype for low-cost prefab homes comes to prove that affordable home design can look attractive and feel cozy inside. Not only that, but they can be integrated into the landscape. Imagined by Swedish architect Tommy Carlsson, this first of its kind low-cost prefab home is located in a suburb of Stockholm, Sweden.

The Happy Cheap House prototype is easy and quick to assemble on site and this particular home spreads over 65 square meters on a 110 square meter property. Ground-floor living, cooking and dining areas are interconnected while the upper story shelters two irregularly shaped bedrooms and a lounge space.

The prefabricated modular frame of laminated plywood allows for easy transport and assembly. Clad in galvanized corrugated iron and pierced by light through the cut corners, the affordable prefabricated home is also space-efficient, offering its owners an aesthetically pleasing alternative to standard prefab houses.

Inside, ceilings and floors showcase painted plywood that contour the warmth and depth of interior spaces, be they social or private. With a total cost of 170,000 euros, the fab prefab home rests on a sloping site that enhances its bold architecture and irregular roofline. These 13 fabulous prefabs will definitely inspire you even further to live in a dreamy prefab home.
