If you’re the kind of person that breaks into a cold sweat when called upon to perform even the simplest of do-it-yourself tasks, then you’ll be delighted to know that IKEA offers help with constructing its latest product — a flat-pack house.
The Swedish furniture giant is famed the world over for its affordable furniture and accessories, but this is the first time it’s come up with a building in which you can put it all.
Called aktiv and retailing for $86,500, the house will be the first in a series of designs offering people an eco-friendly Swedish-inspired home with a functional, wide-open living area that makes careful use of all the available space.
IKEA worked with Oregon-based architectural firm Ideabox to come up with aktiv’s design, which features, as you would expect, a whole of kit from IKEA.
