Scaffold homes

From

Introduction

Scaffolding, also called scaffold or staging, is a temporary structure used to support a work crew and materials to aid in the construction, maintenance and repair of buildings, bridges and all other man-made structures. Scaffolds are widely used on site to get access to heights and areas that would be otherwise hard to get to.

Making major changes to a parcel of land typically requires approval and a permit, with an associated cost. We hope to minimize complication by designing a structure which requires little or no modification to the land itself, and which provides it's own services in a small footprint.

Limiting the structure's shadow to < 18.5m^2 (200sqft) allows it to fit within as many city codes and ordinances as possible. Some jurisdictions may allow for additional modules.
