I'm also really liking the concept of rigging up a non-obtrusive way to make rearrangeable walls. We could have the guides on the floor and ceiling (or if you do it right, just the floor) and we can make rooms, foyers, or convention halls as needed.


That doesn't seem like much privacy if that's where we'll be sleeping and stuff Sad

It's only not much privacy if you move the walls where somebody is sleeping, which would be outright rude, lol.

Only worry I really have is soundproofing.

See, sound is the issue where I simply become a horrible person. I can literally sleep through anything, and I think that audible displays of... well, a lot of things, are sweet and romantic, so they don't bother me. I am, however, an old-fashioned sort, so I usually go somewhere inaudible for the sake of those around me.

How *does* one get soundproof walls, anywho? Even cinder block has failed me (probably the fault of doors, but w/e). If we can't manage some sort of soundproofing, it might be best if we accepted those around us as human beings with desire, emotions, and vocal cords and suck up our probably very misplaced pride on some issues. Sound I think can be suffered, but spying or visual intrusion is a no-no.

Then again...

Maybe we should have a separate building for lovers?

This sure is turning interesting.

I'm fine with whatever we decide, but smaller rooms may be easier and safer to build (if we build a giant underground room support becomes an issue, I dont want to get squished!) and more private.

as for sound insulation, you need some sort of foam. something that resembles cheap camping mats has very good sound damping.

Selkie: I think you're over and underestimating things at the same time. If we only have like 3 ft. of dirt on top of the house, and build the house without the dirt, then put the dirt over the house, things become happy and shiny!

However, I'm likin' the foam camping mats. That's something totally feasible. It'd probably also help with insulation and we wouldn't need to use fiber glass, etc.

If we do 20 by 40 by X houses and we don't do movable walls, what are the best ways to do the room distribution do you think? Each house needs a common area and bedrooms, seeing as how our bath, toilet, and cooking facilities will be outside of the houses themselves.

I now have a plan for a house that makes use of passive solar heating and cooling.  Has 450 square feet plus storage in the roof.  It has a fire place, two floors, and looks pretty cool too.

So continue discussion if you want but I'm going to start modeling my idea prompty

Speaking of trips, I apologise for not telling anybody that I would be gone for a week on a canoeing trip.  I'm back now. Very Happy

What about the general layout of the houses though? Circle? U? Square? Should we vote?
