A few days ago, I came across a house built by a group of builders and home buyers.
The design was so simple that I wanted to learn how to build it.
This is what I learned from this house.
Build a house from the ground up.
This was the first thing I did when I went to buy a house in Delhi, a city with the highest number of slum dwellers in the country.
I wanted something simple to build from the bottom up.
I decided to start with a wooden plank with a floor of bricks and a roof.
I added some boards, a ceiling and some pylons.2.
Build walls and doors.
I chose a slab of 2 feet by 4 feet that I found on the floor of a shed in a neighbourhood I knew.
I didn’t want to build a house that would be too big and heavy.
Instead, I wanted a house to stand on.3.
Start from the inside.
The plan was to start from the top and then expand outwards.
I had already built a house at home.
I needed a little help.4.
To build the house, I had to add stairs.
The stairs were about 6 inches high.
I was so happy that I added them.5.
My first house I bought, in Mumbai, had windows that were too big.
I couldn’t get a decent window for it because it was too small.
My house had a few windows and I wanted more.
I built an extra one, and added a window for the house.6.
Add a roof, stairs and windows.
I knew the roof was going to be big, so I built a big roof.
It was the most expensive part of the project.
The only reason I didn.t finish it was because I had too many bricks in the wall.
It took a long time to finish it.
I still had to build stairs and roof.7.
It had to be built from the outside, so, I made some doors from the sides and from the side walls.
I also had to make some holes to connect the walls.8.
Start adding windows.
The windows had to open from the other side.
I did this from the window facing.9.
I used wooden planks that I picked up from the street.10.
The roof had to start at the back of the house and go up through the middle of the building.11.
These were just planks I picked from the back.12.
Start the kitchen.
I tried to build one of these as well.
It did not work because I could not find a suitable planks.13.
Add the kitchen sink.
I picked one of the kitchen sinks that was on the street, and used it to make the sink.14.
Start with the bathroom.
I went for a bathtub.
I started with a brick floor, but later added an open window.15.
Add all the stairs.
When the house was complete, I built the stairs to the second floor and the roof to the third floor.16.
Start building the house from below.
I took a picture of the plan for the kitchen, and then went back to the drawing board to see if I could get a better plan for it.17.
To finish the house in the next week, I went back and built the walls and added windows.18.
Start working on the roof.
The house was only 5 feet wide.
I bought some planks from a local store and then glued them together with glue sticks.19.
I made the flooring myself.
I have done this several times in the past.
I am very happy with the result.20.
Add kitchen sink and bathtub19.
Build the living room.
This house was so huge that I needed to add a kitchen sink that could fit into the kitchen area.
I only had one room.
I filled the space with a big, dark, wooden table.21.
Start making the living rooms.
I ended up with a very simple living room with a single chair.
I could put a bookcase on it, and I could even make some light tables.22.
The kitchen was not big enough.
It needed a bigger space.
I found a lot of planks on the ground.
I just glued them to each other with glue.23.
Add wall to the living areas.
I thought the wall would be on the back wall.
I kept thinking about that wall, and when I finished it, I thought it would be a little bit more.24.
The bathroom was just 2 feet wide, and the door to the bathroom was a little more than 3 feet wide and it would only have to fit through the window.25.
I never built bathrooms in my house because there was no space.
The walls are all made from planks and I have to glue
