Why are those architect-designed "eco-friendly" pre-fab houses always so expensive...

And dirt ugly..

900 sq. feet  for £55k'  ?

I reckon I could build 1200 sq. feet for less than that; and better looking..

@ Well wolf, its still affordable housing, compared to the prices of houses in the UK

It maybe the way forward for some people
