Chinese architect Dai Jefe was troubled by the rising estate prices in China’s capital. So what he did was he built himself an egg-shaped house on a sidewalk located near his office in Beijing, China. It serves as a basic requirement, and one good thing about the house is that it is totally powered by solar energy.
Whenever anyone begins the process of looking for a new home, size is generally one of the top considerations. Along with budget and desired location, room count and square footage are always among the top priorities of many homebuyers.
American culture teaches us to believe that bigger is usually better, but not all square feet are created equal when it comes to a home’s layout. Yes, everyone wants a home that is big enough to spread out and accommodate all the stuff we collect – and it’s not easy to dispute that more is more in terms of closet space, especially in apartment living – but just because a home has more square footage, that doesn’t make it better. After all, how much is wasted space really worth?
Many houses look expensive outside but some owners have taken up ridiculously long hours to make their outrageous underground hidden homes for others behind closed doors. People can laugh at them, but this doesn’t mean anything unlike any other imaginative people who designed homes. Below, there’s a Chinese man who has designed his home in such a singular way that the house looks ludicrous.
Now, you might be shocked that the house cost him under $1000 to build, when you learn about the construction cost of that particular house. Since he has made it with minimal materials.
It consists of bamboo straps with a mattress and a heat preserving surface and washable material with bag patches, which can grow grass in the spring, filled with elaborate wood and grass seeds. And the building is also covered as a quilt.
