Have you ever dreamt of building your own dream home, and that too single handedly? This dream has finally turned into a reality with WikiHouse. They are a group of designers, who demonstrated how one can build their own home during last month’s Milan Design Week.
Without the use of any hard tools, one can fit together their house like a jigsaw puzzle. The idea behind the whole construction procedure is quite simple. Pinning together a series of hard plywood in a frame like structure, one can actually go about the building procedure seamlessly. By doing so, a frame to be created which can be spruced up with the use of Google Sketchup plug in. This can be modified into the final design template by printing it using a CNC milling machine.
Fitting the jacks into the grooves, one can bring about a drastic change in the way they build their house. The mallet provided can be used for hammering in the pegs together. By pinning together each piece of plywood into the grooves, the final structure can be built. This not only brings out a very unique design, but also makes things more aesthetic and eye appealing.
This kind of house is ideal for areas which are earthquake prone. Countries like New Zealand and Japan have figured extreme utility for such building structures due to their dynamic seismic movements. Such houses can be setup within a year's time making building fun, easy and systematic.
