IKEA is now in the business of making tiny houses. And luckily for triggered millennial furniture owners everywhere, you won’t need that disposable Allen wrench. It’s already built.

The Swedish furniture company is experimenting with prefab houses through their Ikea Tiny Home Project, selling 187-square-foot abodes on flatbed trailers.

The tiny house endeavor is a partnership with Vox Creative and RV builder Escape.

Currently, the only model available is the IKEA version of Escape’s Boho XL Wide model, which starts at $47,550. That’s about 368 POÄNG chairs, for anyone who’s counting.

Features in the IKEA version — which keeps an eye toward neutral tones, sustainability and that certain hygge touch — include kitchen cupboards made from recycled plastic bottles, built-in furniture and a collapsible desk, according to Lonely Planet. The XL has room for a queen-size bed, as well as living, kitchen and bathroom spaces, according to Escape’s promotional video.
