Finding affordable housing in today's economy is tough. But there's a house that can actually afford for just $33,000, and you wouldn't have to worry about paying a mortgage for the next 60 years. An Italian by the name of Renato Vidal has come up with the M.A.DI, a home that laughs in the face of traditional housing. So what makes the M.A.DI so enticing? Well, what if we told you that it's a flat pack holding dwelling which can be easily assembled in just a few short hours by a handful of people. Now that sounds like a home we could invest in.
The home comes in a wide range of sizes, but the 290-square-foot home is the most affordable at $33,000. If you want something with a little more room, like a 904-square-foot design, you'll have to fork over $73,000.
You don't need an entire construction team to build your home, and best of all, it takes about 6 hours to finish assembling one. All it needs is a flat location, and the coolest thing about this house is that the foundation doesn't have to be made of concrete.
Just hold your horses! While the construction might take a few hours, the actual delivery time takes a lot longer. So prepare to wait as much as 60 days after everything's been signed and approved. We sure hope you have a place to stay in the meantime.
The building has been certified as being seismically safe, but the site hasn't specified how well it would stand up to hurricane force winds. Nevertheless, M.A.DI, is revolutionizing the concept of housing solutions and providing folks with a house that can grow, change, and move.
The M.A.DI can also be used for leisure purposes such as setting up temporary dwelling for sports events, and first aid facilities. It can also be used in other areas, like the hospitality industry for things like food fairs.
The wood used to create your safe space is eco-friendly and the construction itself has absolutely no impact on the environment. But the biggest advantage is that it suits the needs of anyone who is constantly on the move, because now the home can move with you.
You can use them to invite your in-laws to stay over when they come for a visit. The best part is that they can be close, but not so close that they can give you a headache. Imagine how amazing having these affordable, movable homes in a crisis where homes have been destroyed by a tornado's aftermath?
It'll feel just like home, especially after you add your own personal touch with furniture. You can even add solar panels to make the structure energy-sufficient.
The space on the inside is also quite comfortable, so you have all the flexibility you need to design the interior any way you like, such as adding a round table and a couch.
You can place a module side by side, or laterally and in depth, to create the perfect home. You also save money, since you don't have to waste a lot of cash on resources and materials to turn the materials into a living space.
The M.A.DI contains solid foam insulation, which not only keeps chilly temperature at bay, but also reduces noise. So with the addition of LED lighting, bathroom, sanitary facilities, and kitchen connections, you'll have the ultimate dream house.
