Designing and constructing a home is no longer something that needs to be left to skilled builders and architects, as the WikiHouse allows buyers to download a design, print it out on a CNC milling machine and then put it together as easily as a set of IKEA furniture.

Although perhaps assembling something from a plethora of flat, similar-looking panels and a million little screws may not be easy Per se, it is certainly not as labor intensive as traditional housing construction.

Made from plywood, the individually printed pieces of wood fit together like a puzzle -- and without the need for power tools. The designs are located online and are all included under the creative commons license as an open source project that allows anyone who is interested to download, share or contribute to the endeavor.
