We've a monumental housing crisis in this country and, depending on who you believe, it could be the fault of the banks, developers, government or many other factors. 

One solution that has oft been mooted are modular homes, but even the idea of that sort of living has Irish people up in arms. 

One company who have a wonderful solution is MIMA, whose modular options are surprisingly affordable.

The beauty of these houses is that you get to configure them exactly as you want and you're even involved in the building process. 

They've been a huge success in Spain and Portugal and the company will deliver them all across Europe.

Prices start at €43,000 and you can add whatever you afford. You'll also be able to 'drop' them into whatever space you have, no matter how small.

Payment phases 

The company give you a unique way of paying for the houses that's staged as they're built.

The company can even help you find land in some countries, where they're starting to build communities of MIMA owners.

What we love about these homes is that even though they're modular, they look stunning and can be customised. 

Add in the fact that they can be built in less than 6 weeks and you have a possible solution to our housing crisis here in Ireland if the funds could be found.
