The Dynamic Home Homepage

By Roland Angenent

[Dak]


These pages are dedicated to the ultimate changeable home concept.


Think of this:

You want to build your own home but have two left hands.

So you go to the hardware store, load a truck full of building-parts, click them together, and live in your home a month later. If you don't like it, you change it. If you want to expand it, you buy new parts and click them in. If you are short of cash, you sell parts and get your money back.

Is this possible?

These pages give a glimpse of the technology needed to make the construction of homes a matter of "plug and play". With this technology, anyone can build, no special skills are required.


Check out the technology of the future home!
