How to Build a Super Low Cost Guest House
Alright, people! This La Maison Au Bord de L’eau, a low-cost beach house would suit your perfect taste. *silence* Did I say it right? *silence* I know, it’s awkward. Am I the only one around here who pronounced the name… incorrectly? “I’m here!” “We’re part of the club too.” “Honey, you’re never alone,” *teary eyes* Let’s hug, guys! I love you all. *silence* Ok, I guess I’m calm now. So, anyway, let’s not feel bad about the pronunciation. We’ll focus on this beautiful, low-cost beach house that will ace your summer experience. Come on! Let’s take an inside tour, shall we? *winks*
Charlotte Perriand, a French architect, and designer is the one who conceptualize La Maison Au Bord de L’eau in 1934 for an architectural competition. The challenge is to create a low-cost vacation home for everyone. Perriand is able to garner the second prize. Although the judges like her design, the working families to whom the house is intended didn’t seem to admire the home. Eighty years later, the famous fashion house Louis Vuitton created a clothing line inspired by Charlotte Perriand. Her La Maison Au Bord de L’eau is chosen. The house then is preassembled in Italy and shipped to Florida. It is uncovered in Miami Beach for the 2013 International design show.
So, we’ll go inside this amazing house now. The house comprises of two wings on both sides with a big and open terrace in between. The wings and the terrace are separated only by sliding doors. Cool, isn’t it? Anyway, the house consists of kitchen, living and dining areas, two bedrooms, and a bathroom. This home looks tiny on the outside, but when you look in the inside, it’s spacious. The two bedrooms are not that huge though, but it can accommodate four people. How? Under the cabinet, there is a pull over bed. Awesome! *winks* The house and the furniture itself is mostly made of wood.
Now I have an idea where to go this summer. “I’m going to stay there this summer too!” It’s alright. The house has two bedrooms; we’ll have each one. “Me too!” “I’m staying there!” “I’ve already booked a flight to Miami. I’m staying there.” *silence* Uhm, right guys. There’s enough room in the terrace. *winks*
