/>Swedish furniture giant IKEA has teamed up with Oregon-based archicture firm Ideabox to launch IKEA’s first line of prefabricated houses in the U.S. called ‘Aktiv’ (Swedish for active).

/>

/>The one-bedroom homes took into consideration the demands of residents in the area and true to IKEA style, carry a hip and modern look.

/>

/>Designed to be eco-friendly, they also feature facilities like dual-flush toilets and energy-star electronics.

/>

/>The exteriors are built using a combination of fiber-cement siding, corrugated metal, and a standing-seam metal roof.

/>

/>According to Jim Russell, president of Ideabox, the complete home “brings all the fun and design of Ideabox houses together with all the function, design, and personality of IKEA”.

/>

/>The homes are furnished with a complete IKEA package that includes Tundra maple flooring, Pax wardrobes, and Abstrakt cabinets.

/>

/>A model of the home was on display at the Portland Home & Garden Show and each unit is expected to be priced at US$ 79,500.
