Build your own home: Site offers self-build blueprints

02.12.2009 Studios : Subscribers : Sustainable

Houston, Texas – A collective of architects, designers and builders aims to rethink and improve residential architecture via the internet.

Hometta offers home designs from 24 studios, focusing on small, sustainable plans and aiming to take the mystery out of building a new home.

Hometta users can browse floor plans, slideshows, blogs and video podcasts from contributing architects, all for free. Fee-paying subscribers can view all plans in detail and access a comprehensive guide for budding builders.

‘We believe great design should not be limited to a small, elite market,’ says Mark Johnson, co-founder of Hometta. In our Homestead 3.0 report we found that consumers are making furniture from plans downloaded from designers. Could these ambitions extend to a home to house that furniture?
