Wikihouse

I spotted this Wikihouse thing on Twitter yesterday. It is basically a group of architecture/designery types that have come together to create an open community project which will mean that ‘anyone’ can build their own house.

So basically you go on the website, download a house plan that takes your fancy (from a selection uploaded by different designers), make a few tweaks in Google Sketch if you want, send your plans off to a CNC cutter and then assemble your house jigsaw stylee.

It looks really cool and will be interesting to see what buildings are created. However, when they say ‘anyone’, I’m sure you are going to need a certain level of above average intelligence to do it successfully. It is definitely beyond my realms of capability!
