Alexander Lamar's life was full and well-off, but because of a serious illness and divorce, he lost everything. Well, almost everything except a residential van and a small piece of land that he inherited. For 2 years he lived in a car and worked beyond repair to realize his dream: to build a house without any loans and mortgage outposts. Alexander accumulated 2000 dollars and built his own house of such dimensions that were permissible without permission to build. I was really impressed with the result: what he built using such a small budget can not fail to impress. It turned out a hut with two floors and a terrace that would cover it in any weather.
How to build a budget house
In this photo, the beginning of construction: Alexander laid the foundation with concrete stops and wooden frames. This house seems to float on the surface.
Next – the frame of the bars with plastic sealed insulation.
After that, the floor was covered with special slabs, which also covered the frame walls.
Under the outer skin of the walls – ruberoid or any other insulating material.
The floor of the second floor is of the same construction as the first floor (using the EAF).
Construction of the roof. Here Lamaru also needed the help of masters.
With the installation of doors and windows, this hut slowly takes the form of a real house.
The roof was also covered with particle board. And in the end, too, tightly covered with heat insulation. Above all this, the roofing of the roof was also done.
It's amazing how in this little hut everything harmonizes. Only 18 square meters – and a complete set! More water from the well.
The bedroom is on the top floor. The unfinished building is already very cozy.
Lamar to the facade of the house attached a terrace for himself and his 2 dogs. Watching the sunset from such a terrace is a pleasure.
Hooray! The building of the house is finished. There is even a garden. The solar system is located above the terrace. All electricity in the house – from the energy of the sun and wind.
Alexander Lamar is satisfied with his small independent world. Meanwhile, his ideas fell in love with the public. Now he communicates with everyone through his books – in them you will be able to find information about this and other projects. But even if you have an apartment, his ideas can be a very useful stimulus. Would you like to build such a secluded place for yourself? Tell your friends about this.
