Holy! Dreams really do come true, IKEA — the place you can easily spend twice what you budgeted for, paired up with Portland-based architecture firm Idea Box and designed a pre-fab house. With a shotgun style floorplan, the 745 sq ft unit comes to you fully installed with a working kitchen (dishwasher, full-sized fridge, convection oven, stove top), followed by the dining room, living room, bedroom and full bath. IKEA closets, which I can attest are pretty great, line the walls of the bedroom and there’s storage in the bath. Um, can I have one? Seriously, Daryle and I often fantasize about our cabin in the woods. But everything is so expensive or a fixer-upper, and who has time for that? How about a pre-fab in the woods for around 80K? IKEA really does make it easy, except we’d have to have land to put it on, plumbing and electric. Hmm, this dream is sounding more complicated. It’s still in the back of my head of a maybe-possibility. Wouldn’t that be great?
