Oregon housing design firm Ideabox is partnering with IKEA to sell prefabricated homes. The one-bedroom houses are 745 sq ft and sell for $86,500.

According to a spokesperson for Ideabox, who clarified some false information spreading around the Internet about the houses:

“These homes are prefabs built by Ideabox. The Aktiv was a collaboration with IKEA Portland to provide our clients with a modern, fun interior with all of the creative space solutions IKEA offers. We ship to all western U.S. states, and the homes come complete, not flat-pack.”  

IKEA has been selling prefab homes in Europe, called the Boklok, for years now, and has plans to build a 26-acre suburb near London’s Olympic Park. Its decision to partner with a U.S. firm to sell prefab homes may indicate that it’s testing the market for bigger plans in the country.
