google prefabricted houses for loads of info
Include: Facilities for sleeping, cooking, washing, defecating,relaxing (some of these could be provided in a single room)

Aware: Weather, privacy

Cost: Use recycled materials

Size for one: 360 square feet

Looks: Not ugly

Quality checks: Weatherproof, Long-lasting, Services (electric, telephone, gas, water, sewer)all connected/connectable - perhaps not telephone now mobiles so popular, but need internet connection.

Components: Click, click, all done

Design: Let me see it and I'll give it some thought.
I will assume this is a project possibly in a country where there are no planning laws or building regulations.

What canary said plus try and get as lower carbon footprint as possible using renewable energy.

Composting toilets if these houses are designed for out of the way places

You will need an outer layer and an inner layer with a space in between for insulation

One person could live in a unit 10ft wide by 20ft long - if it were modular then you could add to it to accommodate more people. I would suggest the unit come in 10 feet x 10 feet modules

Flat rooves are cheaper but an apex roof looks much nicer. It depends on what purpose the house would be used for -holidays? emergency housing? supplementary guest accommodation? Seasonal workers?
Why should it be for a country where there are no planning laws or regulations? You can certainly put up flat packs/pre fabs here in the UK...some very expensive and well designed. Both UK and European manufactured.
But more affordable flat packs may help solve the housing issues in this country.
come on come on
YOU are designing this house not us

joinging it together - bolts
outline ( what does it look like ) - not really a method of building
how big - there must be building norms for this

lower the cost - design the house - then cost the design and then see if various elements can be done cheaper

otherwise - cost volume ( build lost and the meixed cost per house or dwelling unit goes down)

when teachie says design it yourself
he DOEsN'T mean put it on the internet and see what comes up
Most important, the instructions should be unreadable, in a different language, or badly translated from one, complete with unhelpful diagrams; plus there should be some extra unknown bolts and a missing nut or two.
Pata you have the wrong end of the stick. I meant I won't bother to list suggestions regarding planning applicatios and/or building regs. I'm quite aware prefabs are build in this county - we've just bought one for £145,000!
The checks I'd like would be to see if it withstands most or all weather conditions.
It’s a cross stitcher chat room in the USA
Can I buy it in IKEA?

You're correct APG...I've now remembered you mentioning you had ordered one. ;)
xstitcher are you on the right thread?
I loved Tonyav's Ikea flat pack house for a log cabin.

A year ago, Ikea was planning on bringing affordable flat pack housing to the UK...

Watch some episodes of Grand Designs - they've done it more than once.
