We've been offering ready-made modules for years.

 

People come to us asking for a price offer for their dream getaway space... and we repeatedly found ourselves in the position of having to break their dream :(

 

For most people, ready-made solutions are just too expensive.

 

So we thought, why not to design something one can build himself with the help of friends or family?

 

Actually, it all started with my need to have a place where to shoot YouTube videos (I'm the one in the red shirt in the photo above).


I needed a quiet place, a place where I could work in summer and in winter and that would not cost me a fortune.

 

Very much like most of the people seeking our help, my budget was tight... I really needed this space but I could not afford to spend tens of thousands on it.

 

You know, I'm biased (since I've been working with prefab houses for 10 years now), so the first thing that came to my mind was to design something packed with good insulation and made with the same technology we use for residential buildings.

 

I thought this kind of construction could be used for other purposes as well...
So I drafted a list:

  • YouTube studio
  • Podcasting studio
  • Painting studio
  • Music room
  • Garden office
  • Home theater room
  • Woodworking room
  • Hobby room
  • Yoga room
  • Fitness room
  • Kids playroom
  • Mom & Dad's special room
  • ...

Well, you get the idea.


I thought that such a room would be very useful to a lot of people.

 

I talked about it to my partner, Tiit (the slimmer guy in the photo), and he liked the concept a lot.

 

So we started to work on it and, in a few days, we had a 3D model ready and we were  ready to send it to production to build ourselves the first prototype.

 

TWO SIZES

Combine them together to create dozens of variations.

We designed a system flexible enough to allow for building different configurations.

 

On top of that, we wanted to make it possible for everyone to build it and so we developed step-by-step instructions!

 

Then we tested out the instructions on a real project...

If we made it

You can make it!

Save thousands

by building it yourself (or with the help of a local carpenter).

Where do you save money exactly?

  • Shipping

    Shipping a 3m (10ft) wide module is expensive. Depending on your location this will cost you several thousands.

    With this DIY system, you'll build directly on your property and you'll have no shipping cost at all.

  • Manufacturers overhead

    When you buy a ready-made module you  pay for the manufacturer's profit, as well as for the risk they assume with your project.

    Each project has thousands in overhead and you can save this money when you build the same thing directly on your property.

  • Labor

    You can use your onw time and labor to do most of the work.

    This way you will have to pay only for the materials and you'll save thousands in skilled craftmanship. 

    You can get professional help only to carry on critical tasks (as highlighted in the instructions).

We built this with less than 5000 bucks.

A module like this as a ready-made solution would cost you not less than 10000 + shipping.

You can build it yourself

saving over 50%

What's in the instructions?

All the info you need to build it...

    More than simple instructions...

    • Roadmap for the entire construction process

      The instruction cover everything from planning the project to finishing up the building.

      Among the other things we teach you how to make sure you can afford what you are planning to build and, of course, how to build it.

    • Budgeting spreadsheet

      The last thing we want is for you to embark on a project you don't have enough money to complete.

      To make sure this doesn't happen, we included a budgeting spreadsheet (which comes with a video teaching hoe to use it).

    • List of tools you'll need

      Building requires tools.

      In the instructions we list all the tools you'll need, so you won't have to stop in the middle of the works because you miss something. 

    • List of parts and materials

      For both the L module (6m/20ft) and the S module (3m/10ft), we provide a list of all the wooden parts that make up the structure.

      The lists come in a spreadsheet and you can combine them together to build larger structures.

      Surface areas are given in the spreadsheet, so you can shop locally for the additional materials you'll need to finish up the building.

    • Cut list for ordering the materials

      To make it easier for you to order the parts for building up the structure, we prepared one cut list where all the parts are sorted by size.

      You can use this list to order the all structural material from your local wood shop (or from a carpenter).

    • Guidelines for preparation

      Before you build, you are going to need some preparation and you'll have to make the foundation for the building.

      In the instructions, we suggest best practices for solving this particular aspect.

    • Step-by-step assembly instructions

      IKEA-like instruction with reference to the numbered parts you have in the cut list. With this manual, assembling the structure is fun and it does not take much time (less than 2 days of work for the S module and 3-4 days for the L module).

    • Step-by-step finishing instructions

      We would not leave you hanging with a wooden skeleton on your property... the instructions contain all the information for finishing up the building to a standard that is comparable with a prefab house for residential use.
