Ever since I sold the Mid-Century Bungalow a few years ago. I've wanted to do another Mid-century modern build. Here's what the MCM Bungalow looked like:
As you can see it's similar to the HBS Craftsman Cabin which is this year's Creatin' Contest kit.
I finally decided to start the build even though I have three unfinished projects that I'm "working" on. I haven't decided if I will enter the contest this year. I guess it depends in whether or not I actually finish it.
I've made quite a few changes to the kit. First I closed up the front door, picture window and the window on the back side. I also cut two new doorways and all new windows.
I moved the front door to the other side and put an addition on the left to make a bedroom and bathroom. I also made a triangular window much like the MCM Bungalow.
It will have a sunken living room. I cut a square in the floor and put one inch supports under the area where I cut. Since the kit has a raised floor this worked out perfectly.
I used 1/4" fiberboard for the addition because I can't find 3/8" anywhere. The windows are a little deeper than the walls so I will cut some mat board to thicken the walls a bit.
The angled roof line will be extended to make a car port a lot like this one.
I really wanted to use these mini concrete breezeblocks from Mini Materials for the realism, but I think they will mage it a little too heavy and I would need A LOT of them. I will just do my best to make them with the laser cutter. Wish me luck!
