Is the house as unstable as their furniture??

It's an ugly box. I wouldn't want this in my neighborhood, much less live in one. BoKlok needs to do better than this. Did their designers go to design school?? :oy:

do they have tornados in Sweden? These look like they would topple over in a thunderstorm!

looking at this picture again - is this an apartment building? it has an awful lot of exterior doors.

i dont know, i love ikea style and simplicity, but sometimes quality is lacking...

I think this is brilliant, but if this is anything like their products, they might overlook packing a certain wingnut that holds the whole thing together and then you'll be left with a gaping hole in your home for, like, two months while you wait for the part to arrive. Bitter? Me? What makes you think that? ;) In all seriousness though, this pre-fab home is much better designed than most.

ikea is always thoughtful and affordable stuff; if these are like the store then I would check it out

i actually kind of like the look of the exterior but maybe i am just convincing myself of it's hipness because it is a green building :)

The interior seem nice, but the exterior is not aesthetically pleasing to me. The exterior looks kind of like a crummy beach motel.

i like that they are more architecturally interesting than some other low-cost housing. I REALLY like that they were designed with green design practices.

I applaud the effort and advances in architecture, but they're awfully ugly in my humble opinion. I suppose they might fit in certain locations and hopefully not be too intrusive to the environment. The website says they're constructed of timber and steel, but I'm still curious about the siding of these buildings--does anyone know what they are made from? There's been somewhat similar efforts here in Vermont to create economical and environmentally friendly housing developments, but the drawback has always been with having vinyl siding, so I hope this boklok business has some friendly siding on its side. :-)

i think these are great and affordable! you could get a cheap piece of land and then plop down one of these ready-built houses (some assembly required from their team of course). great!

I like this question from the UK site's FAQ: Will BoKlok homes be available to buy as flat packs from IKEA stores? No. You will not be able to buy a flat pack house from IKEA. The BoKlok UK homes are not suitable for self-build. They will be built by specialist contractors and then offered for sale or rent at sites acquired and managed by Live Smart @ Home.

I like the houses, but how is the customer service?
