Coming closer to the application of the chosen design features, I notice that the excitement for the building process is getting stronger. At some stages of the project I felt time was ahead on the practical, but mainly visible developments.Read more "VERKAS"
My modular house is coming together quickly! What a journey and what an experience! I realise more and more how lucky I am to design and build my own house. This is a photo of the prefabricated roof structure of our house. The entire house exists out of 10 segments which we managed to instal […]Read more "VERKAS"
Visible on this post is a 3D drawing I have made from the construction of the rail. It has been quite a challenge to find logical solutions, suited with standard measurements, the right materials – preferably second hand – yet still following our design. I am using fusion360 to draw all the separate segments of […]Read more "VERKAS – 3D"
We, Carlo Zandee & Paulien Doedee were lucky to be selected to build our self-designed modular house in Minitopia Den Bosch. A project supported by both the government and a foundation to experiment with temporary solutions amongst housing and living. So, how the … did we end up subscribing for such a project? Well first […]Read more "VERKAS"
As read previously, Carlo & I are currently building our modular home ‘verkas’. We designed a house surrounded by a movable greenhouse. This way we are able to adjust and extend our outdoor space, making us able to be outside whatever weather it is. The angular construction that you see supporting the roof is made […]Read more "VERKAS"
The house itself will be made from wood. This way we can easily build modular segments that we can pre-fabricate in pieces and take apart when we want to move. It will bring a warm and natural feel to the house, which we want to combine with colours that are bold yet natural looking. Want […]Read more "VERKAS"
And here is our bedroom with balcony! We are still trying to find a good solution for a glass front including a balcony door so that the view will remain clear. True, we won’t have an ocean view like the design below, yet we will have a sea of plants to look at when it […]Read more "VERKAS"
Currently we are collecting the components which we need in order to build our modular house. We were glad to find windows even bigger than the initial design we made. Luckily this project is very flexible and pragmatic of nature, so that we can adjust to the materials that we find second hand or available […]Read more "VERKAS – BACKSTAGE"
