The UKâ€™s first affordable, super-eco-friendly home was unveiled in London yesterday.
The flat-pack, timber-frame homes are designed to be carbon zero and meet the governmentâ€™s strictest energy efficiency code.
Rural Zed, the consortium behind â€œthe homes of the futureâ€, are taking orders for the Â£150,000, three-bedroom house now and are promising to deliver in as little as three months.
â€œWe took the building of a house back to first principles and designed with energy efficiency at the forefront.â€
The two- to five-bedroom homes are produced in a kit form â€œa bit like assembling a sofa from Ikeaâ€.
The house, which can be built in three weeks, is formed of wooden frames.
