What Tube owners say...

​ 

WATCH THIS VIDEO!

You'll hear how people who actually built this house describe their experience, in their own words.

One floorplan

4 different models

You will get all the drawings now and you can choose the model later!

Tube Skillion

Skillion is the original model of the Tube house.
The slanted roof bounces the light on the floor for maximum utilization of the natural light.

Tube Gable

The Gable model was created for those who want a house with a more traditional look, or for those areas where a slanted roof is not allowed.

Tube Mixed

The Mixed model was created for those who like complex architecture. It offers the best of the Skillion model and a more classic roof on the bedroom area.

Tube Narrow

The Narrow model was created for those who own a narrow plot of land. It has the same floor plan as the other Tubes but it comes in a more compact footprint.

The four models share the same floorplan, available in 3 sizes.

Three different sizes

so you can pick the one that meets the needs of your family.

2 bedrooms floorplan - 91 square meters.

3 bedrooms floorplan - 112 square meters.

4 bedrooms floorplan - 125 square meters.


NB: extension, extra rooms, changes to the floor plans are possible.
You can ask about custom modification after purchasing one of the two design packs.

New house, new life​

​ 

Think about it... how would your life change if you were to move into your new home?

  • more space, more light, more freedom

  • more indoor comfort, happier    family 

  • less energy consumptions, smaller running costs, smaller carbon footprint

If not now when?

​ 

Most people never get their dream home built just because they never commit to it.

There is really no reason why you should delay taking the first step.

Here are some of the "excuses" people make to justify not taking action...

1. How does this design pack help me?

2. I don't know which one I want to build...

3. I want two floors...

4. I want to modify the design...

5. I don't know if this kind of project will be approved...

6. I don't know how much will be the total cost of the building...

7. I don't have a land yet...

8. I need to wait until...

9. I need to think about it...

10. I'd rather start from scratch with a local architect...

11. How do I actually build the house?

Like any other house: you contract builders and service providers to do the work for you. The design pack contains all the design documents they need to price their work.

 

The house is designed with a timber-frame structure and any carpenter can build a such object.

 

Depending on your location, you may order the house from a house factory... but that is not a must.

The house can be built on-site with traditional framing methods.

How to do it?

​ 

1. Design

​ 

Get the design pack and choose the house model you want to build. Pick the right size and make eventual changes to the drawings (editable design pack).

2. Permits

​ 

Print the drawings and present them to your municipality to initiate the process of getting the building permission. 

3.Contractors

​ 

Present drawings and documents to local contractors and get price offers for the works.
Use the quantities included in the design pack to make a detailed budget for the entire project.

4. Building

​ 

Once you got the construction permit and you secured the funds according to your detailed budget, you can give green light to the contractors to start the building works.

Which one is right for you?

Good news: it doesn't really matter!

You will get all the drawings now and you can choose the model later.

That's right! ...no pressure, we give you the design for all the models (in all sizes!).

 

We know that building a house is something that requires careful consideration, so we don't want to force you into making a decision now. 

 

The four Tube models share the same floor plan and the same construction details.
This means that, no matter which one you build, you'll enjoy the same indoor experience. 

 

Also, we know that in making your decision there will be things out of your control (local authorities) that might shift the final selection from one model to another.

 

Because of that, we decided to provide a design pack that contains ALL the 4 models in all the 3 different sizes (2, 3, and 4 bedrooms).

 

...that a total of 12 house models in one neat design pack!
