Inside the new $133,000 tiny house that can be taken apart to move with its owners



Moving usually means leaving your old house behind.

But a new tiny house, called the Koda, is designed to move with you.

A construction crew from Kodasema, the Estonia-based design firm that created the 269-square-foot cube, can assemble it in less than seven hours, and disassemble it in four days.

The furnished house will come in three different models: "Koda for Living," "Koda for Studying," and "Koda for Working." They will function as homes, classrooms, and offices respectively, Kodasema's cofounder, Taavi Jakobson, tells Business Insider.

150 Kodas will become available to order online in Estonia starting in late 2017, with prices likely starting at €120,000 (or about $132,500). Jakobson says the company might expand sales internationally if Kodasema can manage to ramp up production.

One side of the Koda is made of four-layered glass, which Jakobson says is thick enough to insulate the house from noise and cold. If owners want privacy, they can close the floor-to-ceiling curtain.

Each cube measures just 269 square feet. (For perspective, the average one-car garage is around 200-square-feet.)

All three Koda models come furnished with pieces designed by the Estonian manufacturer Floyd IFS.
