Think low-cost homes are boring and lacking inspiration? Think again! The Happy Cheap prototype for inexpensive prefab homes proves that affordable home design can look attractive and use space wisely. Not only that, but they can be integrated beautifully into the landscape. Created by Swedish architect Tommy Carlsson, this low-cost prefab home is located in a suburb of Stockholm, Sweden.

The Happy Cheap prototype assembles quickly on site. This particular home spreads over 65 square meters on an 110 square meter property. Ground-floor living, cooking, and dining areas are interconnected, while the upper story shelters two irregularly shaped bedrooms and a lounge space.
