Leva Husfabrik: Flat-Pack Prefab Summerhouses from Sweden
Our resident Swede, Izabella Simmons, first came across Leva Kungslador in Visby, Sweden, a few years ago, when the shop/gallery/bakery had just started producing prefab housing. The company, Leva Husfabrik, has since expanded operations, offering prefabs ranging from 270 square feet to multiroom residences over 1,000 square feet. The idea is to offer sustainably produced wood-frame houses for a modern holiday home, affordable permanent residence, artist studio, or versatile backyard office. Good news if you’re in Sweden. As for the rest of us, we’ll have to wait for a Leva-like option to come stateside. Here’s a look (and for more information, visit Leva Husfabrik).
