In the early 1990s, a group of engineers and scientists at the University of New South Wales decided to take on the challenge of building a house from scratch in a deserted wasteland.
This led to the creation of the world’s first modern house, a four-storey house built in a remote forest near the town of Tuggeranong.
The house is the largest ever built, measuring nearly three metres high and measuring more than 4,000 square metres.
The team built the house from recycled materials and salvaged scrap metal.
A wooden floor and walls are all they needed, and the house is a perfect fit for its remote location.
But the engineers had to overcome some of the biggest challenges of modern-day building, such as a lack of a fire system and a lack on electricity.
They had to use water, sand and wood to make the house.
A lot of the house’s materials came from the recycling industry and the team even had to construct a whole new house.
To make the building more sustainable, the team had to build a fireproofing system, which was not included in the original design.
The fireproof system was designed to prevent the house building from becoming a disaster in the future.
And the team also used salvaged metal to make some of its fittings.
However, this project did not lead to any further construction.
The original team was disbanded after only five years, and it has been estimated that the team made around $3,000 per year, while the team working on the original house made $50,000 a year.
In spite of the challenges, the new house is now considered a classic modern house and it is a landmark building in the city of Togai.
