Buy an Entire House from IKEA: Aktiv

Many of us rely on IKEA for affordable basics for our homes, but would you live in a home that is purchased at IKEA? That is the idea behind the Aktiv, IKEA's first foray into architecture.

In collaboration with housing design studio Ideabox, Ikea offers a pre-fabricated single family dwelling that will be sold in the Pacific Northwest and will come furnished with IKEA products. Priced at around $86,500 for a one bedroom, one bathroom house, the concept of the Aktiv is to create a home that implements the Swedish design company's philosophy of affordable, space conscious, eco friendly design.
