And they need to be carbon neutral, judging by the amount of plastic, steel and glass in them. Welcome to the park home of the future. I wonder if they do one with wheels.

+1, the low cost/quick build of the house is f*ck all use if you can't get somewhere to build it.

My Dear Chap

Once we get China to copy them, built at slave labour rates, the prices will be a faction of that!

FAIL

The project is garbage. It's the same old story i.e. gimmicky "cheap" house, but it has to be built on land, and that's where the problems start.

What use is a cheap little house if the land cost a small fortune?

Answer = no use at all

Makes a nice story for the BBC though :rolleyes:

Maybe cheap prefabs are the answer?

A rich Branson-type should built a ton of these places on brownfield somewhere (or even container boxes!) and allow people cheap long term rents. Make it a gated community to keep law and order.

This way, totally freeze out the baby boomers in the housing market. They will have to drop prices severely before anyone thinks that buying is actually worth the trouble.

Unfortunately the NIMBYs, mostly boomers, are ahead of you, and control the planning system.
