Hey everyone.

My wife comes from Finland and when ever we have been there I have always been impressed with the quality of a new houses, most of which come in kit form and is assembled onsite. Last time we were there, I spoke to a couple of companies and we could get a approx 200sq/mtr home designed to fit into two containers.

One the face of it there are some big advantages

Quaility build
Triple glazing
Highly Energy efficient (the batts are a 900mm thick)
Cost Approx 50,000
Shipping approx $20,000 for two containers and local transport


Local cost would be labour, foundations and finishing probably about $80,000

So on paper it makes it worth looking at.

Any flaws to my logic?

Only problem(s) I can foresee is getting it across the border.
