I want to see inside pics. And I want to see the process of stacking. Cool idea but I think they build the outside to look like stacked houses…I don’t think they really are stacked. Hmmm.
That cant be real…
I call bullshit. No way a normal “roof” can serve as the foundation for another house.
It is designed to look that way, but structurally… no way. Any fool should be able to figure out that you couldn’t just “stack” a bunch of houses on each other.
I wonder how safe is it, I mean, how do you get a permit to do that and allow people to rent rooms in it? Great novelty Item tho, I don’t know if I would rent a room there.
It’s like real life Monopoly.
What an eye sore.
They demolished the surrounding houses and used it to build their hotel, very economical indeed…
What are the odds that all the windows would line up so perfectly?
pot+architecture=stack house hotel
uh, ok. Looks like shit.
these are shipping containers which can be made into great houses when imagination is used plus cutting gear and welding machines !
Your mom looks pretty hot after imagination, cutting gear, and welding machines too.
OHHHH BURN! Sorry.
david after dentist: is this real life???
Well anyone who knows about structures and architecture knows that the framing of a normal built house cannot take the weight of 5 houses stacked on top of it…so it is all bullshit…not only that but I was convinced more and more after looking at all of the pictures that this is a model..maybe even 3D rendering
This is real alright… it’s being build in the dutch town of Zaandam. The ‘houses’ are typical houses for that region, so in the old town-centre you would find these kind of houses. This hotel isn’t build by stacking actual houses, it’s being build as a modern hotel with the apearence of these old houses.
I kinda like it, it’s better then most hotels…
The last one is an equestrian rindig arena. In recent years, those engineered EZ Up shelters and arenas have become more popular, mainly because they are easier to get permitted. King Co. has made it virtually impossible to add a stick-built covered arena to your facility, so people are putting up these, which qualify as temporary structures.Is it pretty? No. Is it practical (in a place where you can’t ride 6+ months out of the year due to weather)? Totally.The price on this place looks pretty good for a 19-stall facility. If managed decently, you could pay your mortgage and generate a profit. The punctuation errors? Unforgivable.
