Can't get these in Canada yet, but according to the psfk website, IKEA is planning on launching its own line of prefabricated houses called Aktiv. It actually looks spacious, cosy and comfortable, although I don't like the whole going through the bedroom to visit the bathroom bit.
From the article:
The IKEA-themed dwelling is a one-bedroom home centered around space-saving furniture and products. The hip and modern house was outfitted taking into consideration the demands from Pacific-Northwest homeowners, and is designed to be eco-friendly. It is equipped with facilities such as a dual-flush toilet and energy-star electronics. A combination of fiber-cement siding, corrugated metal, and a standing-seam metal roof make up the exterior of this all-in-one home.
I'm guessing they'll come flatpacked in cardboard, have word-less pictoral assembly instructions and you'll be able to put them together with just one Allen wrench.
