The purpose of this project is to wrestle with specific design/engineering issues to develop the best collaborative design solution your team can produce. Every attempt is made to simulate a real world design problem. Housing designs are driven by the needs and budget of the client, the restrictions of the site and the creativity and talent of the professional design team.
Your team will be expected to:
Design a get away rustic cabin which
meets a budget of $200,000.
meets specific family requests,
meets current energy codes,
meets liveability issues,
and looks great.
Main Floor Area: $130/SF
2nd Story Area: $90/SF
Basement Unfinished Area: $50/SF
Basement Finished Area: $80/SF
Carport/garage Area: $35/SF
Deck Area: $20/SF
Client wants a weekend cabin that can be rented out when not in use.
Cabin is on river front, mountainous property. It doesn't need a garage but would like to include a workshop that can also double as extra sleeping area and covered area for outdoor barbecue in inclement weather. This could be a small casita.
Cabin itself should have a nice master bedroom area with the capability of sleeping a guest either in a bedroom or a secluded part of the living area.
Client needs a kitchen, fireplace, lofted ceiling, nice bathroom, hobby space and storage for water toys like fishing gear, two kayaks, and a small ATV.
Client is an empty nester and likes to sit on a covered porch to enjoy the view and entertain grandkids (old enough to sleep in separate structure).
1. Sketching: This starts with a bubble sketch. It is then developed to have approximate sizes so we can calculate approximate cost to keep you in budget.
2. You need to show me your sketch and get a second classmate who is your sounding board. That is the person who reviews what you are doing and gives suggestions.
3. Your 3-D Model is a sketchup model we can put on the big screen for a presentation.
4. Hand built model can use cardboard, popsicle sticks, etc.
5. Need to make a presentation to class.
