The IKEA House

If you love IKEA so much that you want to live in one, your dream is about to come true. Soon you can buy an IKEA house:

The Swedish company hasn’t begun renting out its showrooms just yet, but it has partnered with Oregon architectural firm Ideabox to launch a line of prefabricated homes. Dubbed “aktiv,” the one-bedroom homes will be decked out entirely in hip IKEA decor. Expected to sell at $86,500, the homes are “Swedish inspired” and “full of personality,” according to the Ideabox website.

Don't worry, you won't have to put the house together with Allen wrenches - it comes already assembled: Link

A "villavagn" is a trailer-syle mobile home. I haven't seen a double wide, in Sweden and looking now I can't find a way to distinguish between that and a single wide, so you'll have to leave it at that.

However, the right translation for this house style is "modulhus" - a module house.

"Me gusta" is "gilla", as in "IKEAs modulhus? Gilla!" It's pronounced "Yee-la", with the emphasis on the first syllable.
