Project 1: Tiny House
For my first project I was tasked with designing a tiny house. I made the house relatively small with a length of 16 feet and a width of 8 feet. The house itself has a sloped metal roof with 4 full sized solar panels, and wood sliding. The house has both a front and back porch with doors going with them. Inside the house accommodates a bedroom on the second floor, A full sized bath, kitchen, and living room.
For my concept drawing I put many different designs in a forest like location to see how they look in place.
Project 2: Oregon House
The People of Oregon
The people of Portland Oregon can be described as: "Environmentalists" , Friendly, and very athletic.
Hiking in Oregon is very popular as well with its cast mountains and beautiful landscape its no doubt people love to go outside.
They don't like tourists, especially people from California.
Very proud of the state they live in.
Some popular food is Dungeness Crab on the Oregon Coast. The people of Oregon also enjoy Voodoo doughnuts, but they are more of a tourist spot.
Some Popular leisure activities are-
Going to International Rose Test Garden: A garden with a selection of 500 roses with guided tours daily.
Visiting Forest Park: People enjoy to walk through the 30 mile long wooded park. (one of the biggest natural areas in a city in the US.
Division Street: Several blocks filled with eateries from inexpensive foods to expensive eateries.
The Portland Art Museum: The Pacific Northwests oldest art Museum.
For my 2nd project of the year I am designing a prefabricated house on the Oregon coast my for client. The house had to match the scenery and feel of Oregon as well with fitting the the prerequisites of the project.
When making my models I elaborated from my concept sketches to make bigger and more developed designs, But was not fully satisfied with my designs till I hit my final product.
Making my first models they were very crude and made out of cheap materials, chipboard. Their purpose was more to just get my designs out of my head and see what they looking like in practice.
When I started to design my first model I was unsatisfied with the very basic design and relative small size.
After rearranging my ideas of what I wanted my house to look like I started to make my second model. From the second model I got the base idea of my final product, with just a few more additions.
For my final product the house was made out of 18 twenty foot long shipping containers. The house accommodates a full sized kitchen, One and a half bath, two bedrooms, Living and Dining rooms, and Finally a garage and separate rooms with storage and systems. The material of being shipping containers really brings out the feel of being a house out on the rocky, stormy coast.
