Toadstool Manor - Engineering Week
The brief was to create a miniature house (to scale).
The first limitation was that we only had cardboard and other junk. If you want to sleep in this house, you will be sleeping in the world’s largest cheerios box. When you wake up in your four pster bed, which is in a mezzanine The first thing that you will see is a amazing view out of a giant glass pane . The giant glass panel is at the front of the front of the house and so no lights will be needed. After admiring the view, you have to climb down a ladder (why a ladder, because it is easier to make) and now you are in the living quarters. Under the mezzanine is the sitting room where you can watch tv while you are sitting on a comfy chair enjoying your favourite tv program. On your left will be a fire place and the kitchen. Above the fire is an abstract art that you can admire. This house has a clever advantage in the fact that you do not have to pay the electricity bills. That is because there is a solar panel on the roof. (That is why there is a cone on the roof with a diamond pattern). Our concept is a kind of hybrid because there is modern and old fashion in it. Options include a flag.
