Echo there? This is the question that Kimmo Lehtola has given amused refused already on several occasions.
the Question is not strange, when you know that Lehtola and Nancy Mertana the home is built of four used marine container to and one from the old grill from the kiosk.
the Family Vihti butterfly meadow residential area in the risen sea containers house is reportedly the first of its kind permanent structure. The world they must see a lot, but in Finland, construction is in its infancy.
so it is No wonder that the construction site swarming and issues hundred, when the container was brought to the two trucks in an empty lot.
it Was a pretty wild-looking. Neighbors went wondering, but yes all were of the opinion that it's great when someone makes a new and different, the Sea said.I Saw the wild sea containers house looked like a construction. Wonder ttelijöitä was enough. Jesse lehtola old barbecue kiosk home kitchen
Ocean had been dreaming of a container house for a while, when she looked through the summer of 2016 auction notifications. He noticed the notification from the old car grill, which was before work in a cafe and place Vaasa.
Mertana first thought was that the grill can be done in a summer cottage. The building had electricity and everything ready, so it should be easy to use.
– that idea going to fly: what if we design a house around this.
When the grill building was acquired, started container home design. How many containers are needed? How are they set at? Design responsibility Lehtola, who is trained as an architect.
– a whole heap plans to be born before we found the right solutions. At no point, however, I felt that this would be nothing. The vision was so strong, Lehtola says.
the couple came to inspect sea containers in Vuosaari harbour. Containers smell was and was examined. Dents are not the duo in mind.
the couple end up with two long and two short of the trunk. The old grill kiosk from your home kitchen.Finishing still missing, but at the almost finished container home looks like. Project inspired by Niina Sea and Kimmo Lehtola are based on container homes-a company whose purpose is to help others to build the container. Matti matikainen regulations forced the board to trim
based on the study of soils was found clay as a country, so the country should stake out. Then was to consider how the container will be steel piles of the nose.
– we Buy the old bridge of the crane frame, which was built on steel beams behind the. The container was increased after that in place and welding was closed.
the Exterior of the house does not necessarily recognize the container house because of zoning regulations forced the house board cladding and a shed roof. The couple thought at first that the container of the inner walls of the vuorattaisiin drywall. They finally gave up on the idea, so the idea of a container does not disappear.
We should also save the grill of the old windows, because they were so great. It is of course successful, because the window should be nykymääräysten. The same we think of electricity, but the electric man said as soon as they don't take any responsibility for them – all were put to do it again.
grill the building was eventually left only the frame, the walls and ceiling. Still, the former on the grill, the current kitchen is the heart of the building.
Although the exterior of the house resembles an ordinary wooden house, should its construction be creative. The family home thermal insulation materials are container surfaces outside, and heating is treated with a hybrid solution.
the Home has a fireplace, air source heat pumps and exhaust air heat pumps, which take heat recovery and transfer use of the water. In addition, each room to find the electric heater.
the couple, according to the electricity consumption has been human.Interior is left to the container surface appears. Niina Sea and Kimmo Lehtola wanted a container home cozy and warm. Matti Matikainen”Kimmo is a real-life MacGyver”
Recycling has been the couple's home of the project. Containers in addition to including a large part of your home closet, bathroom equipped with both kitchen kaapistoista and the furniture is purchased second-hand online marketplaces, or acquaintances.
in Addition, the structures of the elements, which had been left unused lehtola's previous projects.
If someone is not agreed with the home, it is pimped.
– the outer railing is from the ' 50s, and it is the oldest of the demolition of the house the balcony railing. Pimp it a little water pipe parts and one of the table legs, Lehtola says.
– Kimmo is a real-life MacGyver, Sea said.
the good condition of the furniture, finding no Mertana, it has not been difficult, because people want to get stuff to get rid of.
Recycled goods to the recovery in construction has required that the right furniture in it must be purchased, although it would need only a year away. This has meant logistics - and storage solution with the tweaking.
the Duo estimates that they have saved in recycling of goods with the help of 40 000 to 50 000 euro, if not more. With their help, also the budget has remained together.
I've recorded on every receipt. When something is over, we always wondered where we could then save. Only screws, nails, maalisuteja and other sälään goes another grand.container house is not wood or stone houses cheaper solution
even Though the containers are relatively inexpensive, not the container house are the usual wood or stone houses cheaper solution. The couple have certainly managed to save by recycling, and by building itself.
– If all work is outsourced and material you buy at the store, so a container home I get the same price as the other homes. This is still do a lot of special solutions, so in practice, the container house does not come cheaper. Personality and uniikkius have this home thing, that is, the value you are somewhere else than in money, the Sea said.
the couple not two years spared from tournament fatigue. Home has built in wage work are interspersed, so long night and the building worn on holidays have become family.
This summer, the family focused on outdoor spaces and terraces to put on. Indoors toil still in the upstairs bedroom and bath.
Although the between tired, take home a couple of work of the duo with him. New projects there are already planned.
– we Have both process types, so this kind of life suits us. When you get a little sleep on the offset, starting the new idea better to get. Much has been said, for example, the container of the summer cottage, the Sea laugh.the couple wanted to leave the green container door appear. The same green also continued a terrace railing.
