Finally, just have IKEA make your whole house

I saw in Time Magazine today that you can now buy a KIT home from IKEA (like Sears & Roebuck kits back in the ’20s)

It’s 745 sq. ft, 1bd/1ba and costs $86,500.  

Jason immediately started peppering me with questions like:  Does that include a foundation, What about water/sewer/electric hook-ups, who builds the front porch and stairs entry…

I have no idea and you have to email the design firm in Oregon for those kinds of answers, which, let’s face it, I’m not going to do. But if any of you find out, let me know.

Do we avoid the jokes about assembly (does it come with a GIANT Allen wrench?) or do we wallow in them? I’ll let you decide.

    Imagine all the IKEA codes and kooky Swedish names for every part of the house! Sounds like a nightmare.

    Nice post, it makes me think, I was just chatting with my good friend about this just last week. Turns out she’d been planning on hiring a painting contractor and was stressing about the time to look up, talk to and screen painters -understand right- that is until she came across this useful website. Just felt I’d contribute it here if ever anyone else has almost no time for that work either!
