What makes a house a home?
Is it the acres of land or plentiful floor space in your houses? Well, it all depends on the quality and functionality of your space. The tiny house movement is trending globally at the moment. This trend has risen from the need for people to downsize from the normal living mindset of having large houses. Most of the time, we get to use 60% of our houses rendering the other spaces unnecessary. Why not downsize to a house you can utilize 100% of? Here are some of the benefits of having a tiny house:
1. Blending the design brief and its proposed site.
This is done by translating a client’s design ideas into a functional and aesthetically pleasing design that corresponds to the proposed site for the building.
By hiring an architect, a client can obtain a design that corresponds to the available budget in both the design phase and construction phase. You get the best value for money.
3. Maximize space usage
This is by offering a functional space arrangement that makes maximum use of the available space on the proposed site
4. Functionality in design
In addition to a beautiful design, an architect makes sure that the design corresponds to the actual intended usage of the building by its occupants.
5. Guidance on building services
Offers guidance on how building services are supposed to be implemented and how they are supposed to operate on the proposed building.
6. Production of construction blueprints
Offers blueprints that can be certified by the authorized local building council. This helps to add value to the design and safeguards the client from legal matters that may arise during the occupational phase of the building.
7. Environmental conscious designs
Architects create designs that promote the usage of sustainable construction methods and materials. The client gets a building that minimizes the usage of energy, and preserves resources like water and solar energy through harvesting water and solar energy, and natural lighting. All the elements reduce the building\'s operational cost. And it all starts with design planning.
8. Consultation services
Architects offer project management or simply consultation services as the construction progresses. This ensures that the client gets exactly what was designed or at least 90%.
