Pin-Up Houses, a Czech Republic building company, has created a tiny house prototype that can be assembled in just three hours, according to New Atlas writer Adam Williams. The prototype is named France and costs around $1,200 to build. The home is raised on stilts and needs no foundation, and the prefab model is made from 21 insulated panels made from plywood, framing, insulation, and board and batten. The structure is topped off by a metal roof.

Inside, there's just 6.9 sq m (74 sq ft) of floor space available, split roughly into thirds, following the theme of the flag. So, the blue space is for sleeping and contains a bed. It is divided from the rest of the interior by a partition that doubles up as storage space, with a crawl-through space in the middle. The white space, meanwhile, serves as the lounge and contains seating and a table, while the red space features a wood-burning stove and kitchenette.
