As a kid I loved playing Tetris. We had it on our Pentium 486, as well as on a little hand-held device.
Tetris can give you inspiration to fit weird shapes into spaces you wouldn’t think are possible.
When playing around with different house shapes, I placed two rectangles together off centre which resembled the Tetris Z-Shape, also known as “Skew Tetromino”.
After placing a one metre buffer around the property, so I wasn’t building up against the fence, the ‘Z’ fell into the space perfectly which would allow a perfect north-face orientation.
Following this milestone, I was then able to use the standard 1200mm SIPs sizes and start designing a house that would suit our family.
