Man-Milled-Home

Man-Milled-Home combines digital fabrication with self build techniques and traditions. Bringing the Hundegger K2 computer-aided milling system onto the site facilitates a tremendous increase in flexibility and efficiency without a corresponding increase in costs. 

House building in the UK is still shockingly out of pace with technological advances in other sectors and our Man-Milled-Homes show that by combing their skills, self builders could lead the way in efficient and ecological housebuilding in the UK. 

The primary construction materials of a Glulam timber (structure), cedar shingles (roofs) and cork (insulation & rainscreen) have been chosen for their compatibility with computer aided fabrication, sustainable credentials and simplicity of construction.
