This is a home you can put together in a couple of days. (http://www.brikawood-ecologie.fr/home/) It’s insulated with wood chips and heated using warmth from the sun, and its inhabitants.
Situated in the Pyrenees, Catharhome has specialised in innovative products for wood construction for 30 years. Brikawood are wooden bricks which can be built like a Lego, without glue neither nails nor screws.
The total cost is thus $25,000 for a turnkey house, fully completed by authorised professional teams of Brikawood.
Various tests were carried out with freezing rain simulations from zero to below 20 degrees and the structures compared well against to houses with stacked beam poles. Brikawood can also withstand earthquakes of 8.5 on the Richter scale.
For the life of me I can’t see how you could plumb or electrify this building!
