Coming closer to the application of our chosen design features, we notice that our excitement for the building process is getting stronger. At some stages of the project we felt like doing nothing, yet the detailed ‘invisible’ work is so important too! Follow our instagram page for the latest updates!Read more "VERKAS"
Our modular house is coming together quickly! What a journey and what an experience! We realise more and more how lucky we are to design and build our own house. Our instagram page is updated with the latest developments, so have a look if you’d like! This is a photo of the prefabricated roof structure […]Read more "VERKAS"

The angular construction that you see supporting the roof is made […]Read more "VERKAS"

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"
