Architecture plans

Real estate and property news, just for you!

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
  • Concrete house
  • Tiny house
  • Loft style house
  • Organic house made of mud, straw and mud
Tiny house

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
Wooden house

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.

Special houses

Real estate and property news, just for you!

From time to time, I like to present houses that are a bit unusual, either because they have been renovated a little bit, or because a somewhat original architect has decided to make creation, or because nature has changed it.
First of all, here is a renovation. Usually, the one who renovates a house tries to put a little color on the walls and ceilings. here he decided to paint everything in black. I must say that the result is interesting:

In this second project, it is marriage (you will understand why I use the word marriage) between tiny houses and chapels or small churches. It is not very expensive, quickly made and, let’s say it, very ugly:

And in this third project, we take a basic unit, the container, we put several on each other in an unordered way, we throw a big pot of pink paint on the whole, we put a little light, there you go:

Tiny house against big house

Real estate and property news, just for you!

Everyone knows that building land is becoming more expensive. Moreover, in big cities and tourist places, the land is often more expensive than the building itself. This is why we have seen projects developed for tiny houses.

A tiny house, what is it? It is a house that does not meet the classic criteria. For example, the bedroom will not necessarily be independent of the living room, walls and ceiling are used for storage, for example shelves, hooks to suspend a bike, a bed that lifts the day to be folded against the wall, storage spaces under the floor.

The main interest is to have all the comfort of a large house in a small space, while having a house instead of an apartment to enjoy a garden.

Typical tiny house

Many companies today offer tiny homes. There are even some who offer to transform containers into tiny houses, or movable on wheels.

Movable tiny house

If you want to build a container in a tiny house, just look at the price of a used container. You can have one for $ 2,500.

There are two types of surface: 160 square feet and 320 square feet.

Then you have to find a software that draws plan online as archiplain.

Ideally, it would take a floor plan free, but if it is not very expensive, it can go too. Once you have got your floor plan online, you can start drawing your plan. And do not worry, some house plan software free are very powerful.

The dimensions of the containers are known in advance, so it is not useful to buy a contanier before making plans. Your floor plan app will give you all the necessary items.

Important, a container is blind, that is to say there is no window, even if there is a door. It is therefore necessary to provide openings, and also vents. Evacuations for wastewater must also be provided.

If you know of tiny houses around you, do not hesitate to send us photos that we will be happy to publish.

Free house plan or free home plan ?

Real estate and property news, just for you!

It depends on what you are looking for … But in any case, it’s about making the plan of the house of your dreams. But it’s not always easy. First of all, there are many architects who offer you to make your house plan. And it’s often expensive. Imagine that you order a house plan, and that you are not satisfied with the result.

What to do when you have a catastrophic house plan?

Sorry, not much. Unless you have insurance, but it’s unlikely. The problem is that an architect is a kind of technician, not an artist. He knows the rules to make a house plan with all the technical characteristics, but he will rarely make a plan that takes into account everything that makes a good house plan:

  • Will my house be bright enough? That is to say that lets in enough light but not too much when the sun is very intense, and not too much when you watch a TV show or your computer screen.
  • Is my house well oriented when the wind is very strong? The old farms were always oriented so that the prevailing wind was still blowing on the side of my house, where there are no windows or terraces.
  • Will the rain enter my house when I open my window? If the wind is blowing towards you, water can enter the house in large quantities. Later in this blog, we will write an article on nuisances in a house.
Good house plan

All of these reasons, and many others, may make you think that your paid home plan is not the right one.

How to have many free house plans?

First, discuss with your architect to make your free house plan by explaining that there was a misunderstanding between you and him. He will not be happy because he will feel that he has done his job. You can explain to him, if the situation becomes difficult, that the contract you did with him did not mention a certain number of things. Remember that your architect has an obligation to advise.

When it comes to this situation, it is best to work on free house plans, so that you can do as much as possible. You can do it on the online archiplain software, a free house plan editor, but you can of course choose another software. What is important: the ease of use, the reality of free, the accuracy of measurements, the North-South orientation in relation to rain, wind and sun, and the wide choice of options (windows, doors, stairs, furniture, plants, etc …). Do not neglect the outdoor facilities: swimming pool, garage, deck chairs, etc …

Other good house plan

What to do with my free house plans?

You can build your own house by calling on craftsmen. But it’s risky.
If you do not try the experience, you can contact an architect to make an official house plan. And you can negotiate the price because much of the work is already done.

Tiny house for hamster

Do you remember this article in which you could see a mouse down a store? The title of the article is: Tiny house for tiny mouse.
Here we move on to the next level. It is an entire miniature village. One can see there passing hamsters, perhaps mice, and it is illuminated at night.
Attention to detail goes all the way to trash cans and trees.
If you look inside the houses, all the furniture is present: sofa, tables, chairs, and even cushions!

Container plan

Oh, the fashion of the tiny houses … I tell you often, from the most beautiful to the cheapest going through the most original. But I talk a little less often about the containers.
It must be said that a container is not pretty.
But when you put containers on top of each other, and you put the set on a beautiful mountain with snow, it’s completely different.
Do not forget to arrange the interior with beautiful furniture.
Just one detail: do not forget to insulate the walls … In winter, this can be useful.

Tent plan

Real estate and property news, just for you!

Tent plan

So I have to say that I do not understand anything. I knew the houses with a roof to be protected from the rain, the sun and the wind. I knew the apartments, collective dwelling to protect themselves from the same things. I knew tents, a kind of nomadic dwelling that protects weakly from rain, sun and wind but light enough to be transported.
But I did not know the tents that protect themselves from the rain, the sun and the wind like the houses. In this case, why not build tiny houses directly?
Yet this is the project presented here. The advantage of this structure is to build a common platform.

Tiny home or tiny house

What do you think about the homeless situation? Having a place of your own or one can sleep and feel protected should be an obligation. Not having a place is a source of insecurity.
But you know, we often talk about tiny houses here. These are very small houses with all the comfort and, for some of them, a very cheap price.
That is why we must welcome this initiative from the city of Portland, Oregon. These homes should have a living space of 200 square feet and have water and electricity and a kitchenette.
More than 1000 people have expressed interest. There is no mention of the purchase price or the rent, but it can be thought that it will not be expensive.

Railway tiny house

Railway tiny house

That’s it, I’ve seen it in your eyes. You say to yourself: still tiny houses! Stay a little longer, I’ll explain.
First of all, I have two obsessions, and you’ve already noticed it: drones and tiny houses. I often talk about it but there is a reason for that. I see every day the great creativity of architects, designers and researchers to create new products and new applications.
And here is the result: still a crazy idea for this new tiny house. This one is hung under a railway with lines and one reaches it with a ladder.
Thus, more new animals enter the house, and a real protection against the rain.
Well, OK, it’s a little dark, but we can not have it all …

Another tiny house!

This time, you’ve had enough of tiny houses. I have already told you about these houses many times, and I insisted on their aesthetics, their layout, their ability to store relatively large objects. But did I insist on their price? I’m sure that was missing from your analysis. Here is a record: this tiny house is built in 3 hours and returns to $ 1200: incredible, right?

Tiny house for tiny mouse

Mice are present everywhere, including in our homes. As winter approaches, they penetrate homes with a special interest in cellars, attics and wall insulation. We try to hunt them with toxic produist or with a cat. But no one imagined that they could be welcomed! Our friends from the North of Europe thought of it. They had already imagined strange things like glass igglos, saunas by the beach, or hotels of ice, but that’s even stronger! Watch and admire!

Tiny garden

Real estate and property news, just for you!

After the tiny houses, here are the tiny gardens. From the moment the price of the land becomes more expensive than the home’s manufacturing price, the bottom trend is towards reducing the size of the house to go on a smaller lot. In consequence there is the need to have small gardens. Here, we go even further with small gardens that can be installed in the house. These gardens look like small wooden and glass greenhouses with opening panels.

Tiny house of glass and steel

Tiny house of glass and steel

Can you imagine sleeping in the open but protected from the weather? You’ll find this tiny house in New Zealand wilderness. The original idea is to build this house with very solid glass panels to the walls, ceiling and floor, giving the impression of floating in the air. Thus, whatever the location, it is the nature you see. We find in this house bedroom, a small kitchen and a dining room. In summer, there are sliding doors to keep out the sun, and in winter there is the possibility of a fire.
