Moving usually means leaving your old house behind.

But a new tiny house, called the Koda, is designed to move with you.

A construction crew from Kodasema, the Estonia-based design firm that created the 269-square-foot cube, can assemble it in less than seven hours, and disassemble it in four days.

The furnished house will come in three different models: “Koda for Living,” “Koda for Studying,” and “Koda for Working.” They will function as homes, classrooms, and offices respectively, Kodasema’s cofounder, Taavi Jakobson, tells Business Insider.

Jakobson says the company might expand sales internationally if Kodasema can manage to ramp up production.

Check it out.
