Germany's HIB system allows for DIY home construction with its wooden tongue and groove building blocks. Anyone can use them to build the home of their dreamsâ€"it's like LEGOS for adults! 

HIB has recently entered the North American market where it hopes to help towns that have been ravaged by different natural disasters. With an emphasis on affordability and sustainable living, HIB is sure to be the future of homebuilding. 

Forget do-it-yourself home repairs, here's to DIY home construction.

Implications - The HIB system gives future homeowners a few options for building methods. Homes can be either pre-planned or individually planned to meet unique design preferences. Users can also choose to build with the help of a building manager or entirely by themselves if they're up for the challenge.
