The making of

This page shows some of the models over the last 20 years to test the stability and evolve the construction.

The current version

Finally version 51 is the version that was used for the first house in 1:1.

The base…

As we did not use heavy machines we could build the house in the middle of a fruit orchard. This is the biggest tool we used to set the fundaments. (With more time it is also possible to set them manually 😉

The proof of concept was very successful: The construction could be assembled by 3 people only without usage of heavy construction machines

Apart from Spring 2020 you can come and see it!

 

The first model

Back in 2003 we built the first version of the reconstructable house. The target of this version was to prove the stability of the construction. The goal of stability was fully met, but the construction was yet too laborius to assemble.

In the following years we created various versions almost a dozen of models trying to simplify the construction without loosing its stability.

 

Extended version

In 2008 we introduced CNC milling machines to build the models and gain experience with the automated production of the parts.

The version 5 below was made as a proof of concept  to gain experience how the basic kernel can be expanded.

 

The outer panels are not mounted to allow the view to the kernel and demonstrate the idea of a very solid kernel on which the extension is attached.  It also shows the possibility to use the outer space as terrace or winter garden.
