About Us

Our Vision

We envision a world where everyone has access to a safe, sustainable and comfortable home.

Our Mission

Our mission is to make sustainable housing affordable through our innovative building concept.

The Problem

There is a large demand for affordable housing, but the traditional building sector cannot provide sufficient housing and has a devastating impact on the environment.

Our Solution

Easy Housing is a circular and carbon-negative building concept based on sustainably sourced timber. Our houses are safe, comfortable, and resistant to natural disasters. The concept is standardised and scalable, providing a universal solution to the global need for affordable  sustainable housing.
