An affordable flat pack house that can be built in four weeks could revolutionise the housing industry, according to its designers.
The house is designed and manufactured by Daniel Reitsma and Edward Duc from the New South Wales Hunter Valley.
The pair claims the hybrid pre-fabricated modular house near Maitland is a world-first.
The house prototype was built at Woodberry by a local factory.
It is called the Modular Architectural Adaptable Panel (MAAP) House.
"It's a flat pack house, like building with Lego. If you use the same sized pieces you can build what you want," Mr Reitsma said.
