Brikawood Studio Kit: Build A House with Wooden Bricks

You might have seen this awesome video floating around Facebook recently, but if you haven’t, meet the Brikawood “Studio Kit” that allows you to build a tiny house without any nails or screws.


Yes, you read that correctly! These innovative bricks fit and click together much like LEGO bricks, and it would only take you and a few friends a couple days to put the whole house together (minus the electrical/plumbing, etc.).

If you happen to live in France, you’re in luck! If not, I sure hope they’ll ship it overseas because I would love one of these. What do you think?

    Wow! That’s pretty amazing, and the results look fantastic. This is a great way for a young couple or single person to build a home themselves without having to do any heavy or dangerous carpentry. Now, when are they going to have a tiny house kit that will fit on a trailer? Hmmm?

    This would be fabulous for building a sauna.

    What a great innovative idea!

    A great do it yourself building material, but I would be concerned as to it’s cost, as I believe it’s blocks are a little time consuming in order to cut, and route all it’s connecting sides like in post and beam construction…! Yes a lot of the cost can be deferred by self construction, as they look pretty easy to put together in order to build your tiny dwelling… But then remember this would be an imported product so there will be a lot of additional hidden costs such as an import tax, and just shipping alone has to be a very large nut to crack as well…! As will be a charge again from dock to site… I don’t know about this one but it is a great idea if it’s design can be replicated here in the States…

    I love it. Years back I have been living in a log home and still missing the great indoor climate. This system eliminate the disadvantages of logs like shrinking and cracking. Beside that you can build it yourself without heavy equipment and can lift it even with back problems in a short time. Plumbing and electric can be put inside which is an advantage, too.
    They are using a semi automatic machinery for production which gives precise measurements at lower cost.I t all depends on the quality and dryness of the wood.
    I am going to ask them for a quote. Don’t be scared about shipping and customs. Mostly you have to pay VAT but handling cost at port can be as high as see freight. A license would be probably the way to go because our Douglas Fir isn’t bad either.

      Let me know what you find out! I really LOVED this house and I think it’s super innovative.

      • Michael April 14, 2017, 7:03 pm

        I got in touch with them and have been told that they developed a lighter version with less wood and more insulation which they are testing right now.

        • Natalie C. McKee Natalie C. McKee April 17, 2017, 8:14 am

          Oh great to hear, Michael! Can they ship it to the US?

        • Michael April 17, 2017, 9:13 am

          I am sure they can but lets see after their testing has been finished.

    TO BAD THEY DON’T HAVE ENGLISH TRANSLATIONS FOR AMERICANS.

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie C. McKee March 28, 2017, 11:15 am

      They aren’t marketing to Americans 🙂 They are a French site for French people, but I did find the cool English video for us to enjoy!

    • Kelly June 10, 2017, 12:57 pm

      they do translate upper right corner on brikawood site

  • Forest May 5, 2017, 1:16 am

    This is an English-language newsletter. It does most of us no good to have links to a French-language site. Get us a translation from the French.

      Hi Forest 🙂 If you use Chrome, Google will offer to translate it for you, which is what I do when reading it 🙂 You can also copy/paste the text on the website into https://translate.google.com/m/translate

        Thank you! I’m such a computer illiterate.

        • Natalie C. McKee Natalie C. McKee May 8, 2017, 5:02 am

          No problem Forest! 🙂 My pleasure.

  • CJSF June 28, 2017, 6:50 am

    I wonder if this could be made to satisfy hurricane codes for states like Florida…

  • Jessica Young July 4, 2017, 5:00 am
