The Bushmaster Bungalow – The Concept
The bungalow is a cost effective, low maintenance concept ideally suited for construction on the beach, in the bush, in areas that are difficult to access, on river banks or seasonal floodplains, on slopes or unstable ground. The design is aesthetically pleasing and ideal for locations with a view. It is easy to transport and construct and is also very durable and environmentally friendly. It can be removed if necessary.
It is ideally designed as a 2 sleeper tourist accommodation unit with en-suite bathroom (shower, toilet and basin), open plan bedroom, lounge and kitchenette with 2 seater dining table, zinc, fridge and stove; under cover outside veranda. The total size of the bungalow is 33m2 (6.6m x 5m). Outside cladding materials are optional. Approximately 4 of these units fit into a standard 4oft shipping container.
With a team of 2 carpenters and 4 assistants the Bungalow can be completed in approximately 20 days. Costs on request.
