Rixter guessed last week's building correctly. The structure, Trailer by Invisible Studio, is another prototype. The relocatable £20K house is built of locally grown unseasoned timber and material sourced from construction waste. The description provided by the architects to ArchDaily further details the materials:

“Externally, the trailer is clad in corrugated fibreglass and steel, and internally lined in used but cleaned shuttering ply. All of the joinery is from plywood offcuts, including the 2 staircases. Handrails are made from offcuts of blue rope … High levels of natural light are provided by both gable ends which are ‘glazed’ with high performance interlocking polycarbonate. The building is insulated with scavenged insulation, the doors were sourced from a skip, and the roof lights were ‘damaged’ and thus trade ‘seconds’.”
