Last week I finished the design of a guesthouse for tourists who want to go trekking in Arfak range. I drew it using Google Sketchup 8. I got the software before it was bought by Trimble. It took around one week to make the basic drawings of the house. Most parts of the house will be built using wood that is abundant in the region. Only the door handles, roof and windows that are from manufactured goods. The house will be constructed around 1 meters above the ground. Local builders will do most of the construction works. After finishing the design works, I am now trying to raise some money to help local people build it.
The followings are the design of the guesthouse as seen from several directions:
