If your kids are like mine – they love building with their Legos. A week hardly goes by without them telling me or their mom about the latest kit and what they can build. From simple beginner starts to look-a-like models replicating the latest sci-fi movies or super heroes.

But what if someone came up with the concept of kits in which you could build your own house from around the world? Lincoln logs were a thing of the past, Legos are the building blocks of today, and tomorrow… your very own “house from around the world” kit. Structures from Scandinavia to Japan; Canada to Mexico; Africa to South America.

Imagine how diverse the kits of the many abodes across these lands there would be? And what of they were life size? Well, there may not be “house-in-a-box” just yet; where you can go to a store, jump on the computer, surf through all the styles around the world and click ‘select’; but what if… what if you could build your own home from around the world? What would it look like?

Well how about we just look at one style, a style from Argentina.

One of the major nations in South America, its modern history begins back in 1810. And as with most of North and South America, its population had a heavy dose of European migrants in the 1800’s, bringing with it both European lifestyle and architect.

But it was in the first half of the next century (1900’s) that this influence would manifest itself in the Mar-Del-Plata style homes. This style is immediately recognizable from its orthoquartzite stones giving the facade of the house a sophisticated and wealthy look.

Would you like to see what it looks like? Check out this infographic from HomeAdvisor. And while you are there look around at other homes from this great planet of ours… And start thinking – what if I could get one of these in a box?
