Young design duo Fndry built a tiny wooden house using the innovative, open-source platform WikiHouse. Measuring just 150 sq ft, FOUNDHouse was built using shared online housing templates cut with a CNC milling machine and assembled using no glue or screws. Prefabricated in Denver and erected in Utah, this sweet little dwelling is completely clad in tiles made with recycled shipping pallets.
Fndry’s Patrick Beseda and Lacy Williams created FOUNDHouse as additional student housing needed for the DesignBuildBLUFF (DBB) initiative last year. Designed using the non-profit platform WikiHouse and digital fabrication, this tiny wooden shelter was made possible through open-source designs found online. The different wooden components were cut with a programmed CNC milling machine in Denver, before they were then driven to Utah for the final assembly.
The tiny house was built using traditional construction techniques and without the need of screws or glue, so it can be taken apart if needed. Then came the insulation, and exterior decoration comprised of pieces of old wooden shipping pallets that completely cover three of its walls. This sweet FOUNDHouse is a great example of open-source architecture that shows once again the Internet is King.
