Designing a home on and within a budget is possible. When you design for the space you need not fort he space you want you will finish with a more economically efficient home. The use of furniture in plan early in the design stage will help maximise quality living space and minimise the circulation space. Andrew Kerr is a Tasmanian Architect and has set himself the challenge of designing and building a house for $60k. Here, he answers some questions posed by The Australian Institute of Architects: Interview with AIA and provides interesting reading.
Andrew documents the project from the very beginning at his blog http://60khouse.com.au/ and is worth a visit to see the project’s development.
