HOME and garden giant Leroy Merlin are the latest to jump onto a new craze for prefabricated houses in Spain.
The perks are clear: for as little as €5,000 you could own your own home.
The new prefabricated houses from Leroy Merlin are also modular, meaning you can keep on building and expanding.
It’s a revolutionary way to live with vastly reduced expenditure.
They offer a life-changing opportunity for people without funds to buy a whole house, but enough to at least get them out of the cycle of paying rent.
They’re also a great option for anyone thinking of building an outhouse or chill-out zone.
The new offers from Leroy Merlin even come with guarantees up to five years.
Of course, the downsides are clear: only one of the basic houses exceeds 20m2 living space.
But, hey, you bought a house for €5,000. What did you expect?
(You’ll also have to pay extra to have a Leroy Merlin specialist actually build the house after delivery.)
Below are the latest designs on offer.
