WikiHouse, a brand-new effort to let anyone design and build their own dwelling. Its an open source construction set that aims “to allow anyone to design, download, and ‘print’ CNC-milled houses and components, which can be assembled with minimal formal skill or training”.
WikiHouse generates a complete set of corresponding milling drawings. The drawings can then be used by a computer numerical control (CNC) cutter to create the actual parts of the house from locally sourced plywood. The user then can assemble the house without any power tools, and WikiHouse claims the result can be made weathertight using cladding, insulation, damp-proof membranes and windows.
