In the construction of apartments or houses, hard materials such as concrete or brick are often used.
But we forget that we are in the era of innovation: many technologies such as 3D printing allow us to think about the construction of tomorrow.
One approach is to use inflatable objects.
One can for example use these inflatable objects to build a gigantic structure in the courtyard of a building:
You can also use large inflatable balls with light and colors to decorate the interior of a house:
You can also make furniture in inflatable objects. Convenient to move, just deflate:
We can finally create structures such as bridges or tunnels in inflatable material:
As you know, I like bold constructions. And among these, hanging pools are one of my preferences. You will find at the bottom of this post some references.
At first, I wanted to introduce you to the crazy project of an architect. This is to make a swimming pool hanging over a Norwegian fjord.
Some balconies are arranged above this pool to enjoy the show:
Many people would like to get architectural plans. Why ?
When you want to build a house, you have to go to a builder or a real estate developer. Each company has its own list of house plans.
So you have to go from one company to another to find the one that best fits your personal style. For example, you can choose between:
House with wooden structure
Loft style house
Organic house made of mud, straw and mud
But you can also if you have the budget make houses that look like castles, mills, bunkers, and everything you can imagine.
But you will not always find the company that can make you the house of your dreams.
One of the methods to get this house is to buy house plans already made. It costs a little money, but it is possible. But if you want to do something really special that does not exist, you can ask an architect to make a plan. Be careful, having a made-to-measure house plan can be quite expensive.
A much simpler method is to make a house plan with online software. In most cases, you can make some plans for free. If you want to go further, for example:
Make many house plans
Edit these plans in pdf
You can take a subscription that is often cheap, much cheaper in any case than the rate charged by an architect.
Advantage: you can make all the changes you want without thinking about the price it costs.
And if you want to take an architect, it will cost you less because you can offer him directly the plan you have done and want it to improve.
Ready for the project of your house plan? So, draw plan.
Your first house plan: how to do it?
I have a piece of advice: you take a pencil, an eraser, forgiveness of erasers, and a sheet of paper, sorry several of paper.
You start tracing your house on a piece of paper, and that’s where the trouble starts. Oh, I forgot, you need a double decimeter, and a protractor to draw angles. After 5 tries, I bet you put all your plans in the trash.
So, of course, you can practice with online software such as roomsketcher, archiplain or floorplanner.
I invite you to try these 3 programs, and you will see which is the easiest to use.
Let’s go further in the discussion. To make your first plan, do not try to make a detailed plan of the Palace of Versailles. If you do not know, there are 2300 pieces, of which only 1000 can be visited … Start with a more modest project, for example a studio apartment. There are few rooms, and like that, you can practice integrating all rooms, openings and furniture. Ready ? So, it’s up to you to draw your first apartment plan. And if you wish, send me your plan, I will be happy to publish it in this blog.
