These Flat Pack Home Costs Around $50k And Can Only Take Six Hours To Build
Wonder if they would pass TCI planning permission?
On our Christmas wishlist this year: a tiny potcake puppy, the new jeep from Bayview, and oh, maybe a home to call our own?
Fat chance of the last one for many of us given how expensive it is to build in Turks & Caicos right now.
But what if we told you that there's a nifty flat pack house that costs under $20,000 and can be made in just six hours and transported anywhere in the world?
How amazing would it be if we could build these in Turks & Caicos?
M.A.DI. is one of the most revolutionary housing solutions on the market today - an Italian company creates the flat packed home, which includes the ground floor with a lounge / living room with a staircase, a kitchen and a bathroom, and an upstairs with two bedrooms.
Their website states the costs are as follows:
One-bedroom MADi $39,900^ + $11,970*
Two-bedroom MADi $69,900^ – $20,970*
Three-bedroom MADi $99,900^– USD 29,970*
Standard* delivery and installation costs, are on average, 30% of the cost of the home
(Please use these costs as a guide. An exact estimate will be provided at your onsite consultation.)
Now, we all know how important it is to build solid homes in the Caribbean that can withstand storms which has become even more apparent since we were hit by Irma and Maria last year. The Turks & Caicos was able to bounce back thanks in part to the heavy regulations which unfortunately drive costs up and up.
At this point we're not sure if these flat pack homes are up to TCI planning permission, but it certainly is worth looking into as it could be a game changer in construction for the future.
