A kit home can conjure a certain image—white walls, simple layout, vanilla finishes. This home in Lake Leelanau, Michigan, was built to show the opposite—that kit homes can come with crackling fireplaces, moody walls, and design-forward details.
The recently completed Birch Le home is a three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bathroom house that serves as an “experiential showroom” for Hygge Supply. Since 2016, the Michigan-based housing company as been building single-story kit homes that evoke its namesake cozy aesthetic.
Like most kit homes, Hygge Supply’s designs are built from prefabricated modular parts that are shipped to a location and constructed on site. The steel-framed houses have floor-to-ceiling windows and structural insulated panels that give the exterior a bungalow feel.
Hygge Supply homes are customizable and range from 350-square-foot pods that start at $53,000 to three-bedroom houses that start at $275,000. Naturally, the Birch Le house is designed with the highest-end details, including designer furniture and a massive covered deck that effectively extends the house into the surrounding forest.
