A married couple invested in ordinary concrete pipes for a heating line. However, they were not used for their intended purpose, but came up with a more creative application. In four months, the family transformed concrete pipes into the best dacha in the neighborhood and recorded the entire incredible transformation process on video.
It should be noted that the family was inspired by the project of a Hong Kong architect, James Low, with the idea of an unusual dacha. He suggested using concrete pipes as apartments for modular homes: according to Low’s idea, such structures can be easily placed almost anywhere. The architect’s apartments are designed for one or two people, they are immediately equipped with communications, a pre-installed kitchen and other necessary items directly from the factory.
These are already structural features, from which the family repelled when thinking about their own project: But since they were still building a dacha, they decided to abandon unnecessary complications. They took as a basis a pipe of the same diameter as that of Low, 2.5 meters. Communications have been kept to a minimum, as there is not much to do in the country.
On both sides, the pipe section was limited by wooden ceilings. The family wanted to have a lot of light in a small, comfortable house. Therefore, glass panels are also integrated here on both sides. Inside, all the wiring was hidden in the walls, and an air conditioner was installed outside so that the summer heat did not interfere with rest. Particular attention is paid to the interior decoration. The house is small but very cozy and comfortable.
And finally, the house was mounted in the parking lot. Since only a section of the pipe was used, the cottage can be moved to another location. True, for this you will have to order a crane. This is how the transformation of the pipe into a real cottage went: An unusual dacha quickly caught the attention of neighbors. Now the family is thinking about whether to take an order for the next dacha that is already on sale for money.
