What if you could just build your home by playing with massive Lego-like house blocks? Well, the Belgium-based company ‘Gablok’ makes it possible. However, the Gablok is known for their insulated wooden blocks that allows you to build an Eco-friendly house on your own.
It was invented by Gabriel Lakatos who has more than 25 years of experience in the traditional construction field. He was inspired by the Danish construction toys from a young age. As a result, he invents this revolutionary DIY construction method after spending months in research and testing.
