This Brexit-Inspired Country Home Assembles in Just 5 Hours

Make a quick getaway when the shite hits the fan

The United Kingdom’s decision to withdraw from the European Union effective on March 29th of 2019 has led to political unrest, concerns about economic stability and at least one decent YouTube clip.

One more silver lining? It also inspired one English landscaper to commission this house in Spain.

Constructed in the town of Valdés in Asturias in northwest Spain to serve as a second home for its owner, the firm behind the build, [baragaño], says Casa Montaña represents “technology and tradition in the days of Brexit.”

The reason for that is that most of the home was actually produced over the course of four months in a Madrid factory specializing in prefab construction. Once it was finished, the home was shipped in pieces over the Cantabrian mountain range and put together in just five hours.

That’s the technology portion of the home. The traditional piece comes from Casa Montaña having a region-appropriate black slate roof that was put in place by a local craftsman.

In the center of the two-floor home sits a metal staircase that really ties the dwelling together and meshes well with the simplistic lines and open space in Casa Montaña’s interior.

Not a bad place to ride it out when the pound bottoms out a little more than a year from now.
