Cables and plumbing. We position most of the cables within the “chimney effect“.This way the electric current that powers the house and the cables for the sensors are safe and sheltered from the environment. It’s quite easy to reposition them in time if need be. It’s like putting the cables on the outside of the wall. They are easily accessible. The cables go in a vertical position all the time so it won’t interfere with water pipes or any other electricity cable. In case we want to change the position of the sensors or the sockets then we can do it easily.  All we have to do is reposition the cables under the false facade.




This way we can add or subtract anything at any time in minutes and without destroying the walls.  We don’t need to repaint the house. The only thing you will have to renew is the 1*2 or 5*5 cm gap where you extracted the power outlet. I know it’s not perfect, but it is so much better than destroying tens of meters of wall. This would mean emptying the room… dust, loud noises and workers for days. Nobody wants that. You might change all of the cables and wires within a few hours while your kids sleep in their room. Slightly exaggerated here to show you the point.

The plumbing has to be covered with insulation. We embed those in the walls. In case of repairs or changes it’s easily accessible. Read about the insulation materials here. The initial investment might go as low as 60-70% compared to normal houses. This construction method could save you days if not weeks. By going vertically most of the time we won’t waste as many cables, as much plumbing accessories and additional equipment in the corners like normal houses do. Basically this way you take the shortest route from point A to point B.



The real benefit is when you want to modify things, in case of an incident, repair or failure. It can be done in minutes. Even 50-60 years after the construction is ready, your grandchildren will be able to change or reposition anything with ease (over and over again). It will save them a lot of money. Moving the kitchen sink, the bathtub or the toilet involves changing one or two tiles, instead of all of them. We highly recommend you read this article about the bathrooms and kitchen to save money. (make it simple).



You might use the Arduino, Raspberry  technology to switch on and off your lights, electrical equipment etc… By not using classic switches to switch on and of the lamps we can save additional money. Using voice recognition and motion sensors is cheaper then putting tens and tens of switches all over the house with hundreds of meters of cables. This way you can save on the power usage as well. Every time you leave a room the lights might switch off automatically.
