If you’ve ever actually managed to turn an Ikea flat-pack into an item of actual furniture, something like this could be your next project. It’s a kit home, most of which arrived on Lamb Island on a single truck (albeit in lots of pieces) and because transport costs can add up when you build here, that’s a big advantage. The house above is one of a series of designs (several of which have been built on Lamb Island) from a company that specialises in such homes, and as you can see below, their interior layouts and finishes are way above the standard you’d expect from most kit homes. It’s just a pity the company’s website hasn’t been designed as nicely.
