What is behind it?
The Hermit Houses building system uses a folding structure which gives the houses their strength with very little material. This means that a Hermit Houses construction can be realized relying mainly on light (and cheap) sheeting material, which can be cut using your average toolset or CNC mills.

Since the panels all remain relatively small, the houses can also be easily transported and built up by hand – without the use of heavy machinery. Once the panels are cut, a team of two persons can complete the structure of a small house in about a day. And because foundations also can be kept very light, the houses will hardly leave any traces in case of relocation.

Who?
The Hermit Houses are the result of a collaboration between two Dutch Architects: Mark van der Net and Daniël Venneman. Next to being an architect Mark is also web developer, programmer. Daniël is specialized in sustainable DIY building solutions.

We have built numerous Hermit Houses before releasing it as on open source design and building system.
