The Building of an Arch Metal Building by a non-professional ... Recycled lumber and salvaged windows and doors used to build the ends of the building. Also, I'm a novice video editor ... if you're looking for spit and polish, move along you don't belong here. If you're interested in the potential of an arch metal building and a few ideas that worked for me perhaps you'll enjoy watching this video. If the music doesn't work for you, turn it down or hit the mute button. Take a deep breath, relax it's just a YouTube video.
Simple walk around of my newly-completed bow-roof workshop.
When his mother began talking about putting a prefab in her backyard, Caspar Schols- a physicist by training- was working at a tech firm, but had always loved architecture and asked if he could design her something special. Wanting to create a home that you could change as easily as you change your clothes, Schols built the home in a series of shells on a wooden platform. The outer layer is insulated wood panels that slide open to reveal a glass greenhouse pavilion for hanging out or entertaining on colder days. The glass shell can also be rolled back to create an open-air dining, lounging or performance space. With more rolling, one can create other configurations, like the dinner party mode (wood in the middle, glass on the outside to create a covered space to fit a long table and 30 guests). With no architecture training (at the time), Schols spent 8 months building the structure himself (with occasional help from family and friends). He set each shell on 8 small wheels which fit into tracks in a wooden platform. Into the floor he built-in pop-up beds and cabinets to hide outlets and he even had plans for a pop-out bathtub. Though after his mother and guests slept on the pop-up beds a few times they deemed them uncomfortable and he replaced them with furniture from the neighbor (who just happens to be designer Piet Hein Eek).

10 TINIEST HOMES OF ALL TIME One of the slogans of the Swedish company IKEA urges to think boldly. However, it would rather seem that they are far from bold thinking when all their proposals for interior design are limited to the principles of comfort and practicality. The heroes of our next video are not afraid to make bold decisions – They build houses on the water or even take them on the road with them. With that said, check out our top 8 smallest and the most comfortable houses. GREDIT: 1. Tokidoki Traveller https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAKZ2vtm_-hfqeCGTNNbZqA 2.

I presently will not be building cab-inn kits. I have a contract to build camping cab-inns and operate them in a local campground. As I find time in the future I may start building kits again.
