Question Description

I’m studying and need help with a Engineering question to help me learn.

I have template where you will be writing

I have wrote some information on the other template to know what should you write.

my dream house is a farm house, i would like a house that has huge place in a quiet city where there are no busy road so that i feel comfortable. So i choose buri because its a new city and there are a lot of fancy houses there.

*Buri is in Bahrain*

I want the house to have a big sitting place area which is called majles i would like that so that i can invite as mush friends i want and my family too so i decided to have big place for sitting. My main purpose is to have a big sitting area with no beams between and i wanted to the height to be long (3.6) long . The sitting place area is 13.2 x 10.5 and i wanted to be 3.6 long so that it looks grant and fancy. Beams are hidden.

Outside the house their will be parking place, swimming pool, watchman cabin and a garden.

Ground floor has 2 bedroom. One for my parents because when they get old it will be harder to go upstairs. And the other room will be for the guest. And kitchen for keeping the dine in.

First floor has 4 bedrooms. One of them will be the master room which will be mine. There will be jacuzzi and sauna.

Second floor has just one room and it will also be the roof.


The materials i used for:

Frame: aluminum (give a brief description)

Windows: balexco 60 (give a brief description)

Bedrooms, sitting area floor: vitrified tiles (give a brief description)

Toilet: ceramic tiles (give a brief description)

There will be ground floor/ first floor/ second floor • • • • Understanding your ‘why’ – your purpose for the project – will help you start to define your project goals and increase the likelihood of a meaningful and successful project. By knowing specifically what you want to accomplish, you won’t get distracted and try to have it all – opting for things simply because everyone else has them or to please other people. Instead, you can focus on a specific plan of action that will get you what you specifically want. These aren’t just goals about what the house looks like, but also how much it costs, how it’s constructed, how it performs, how it adapts to your needs. These goals are wholly dependent on what you want to achieve and what you want out of your new home. The key is to understand your project goals and priorities. Then, let those goals dictate how you make decisions. Getting the selection right the first time by selecting the optimal combination for your home has enormous benefits and is why setting good project goals in the first place is so important. Once you understand where your priorities are and what’s most important to you, you can use those to guide your decision.

What is important to you may be less important to someone else. Cost may be a big driver in the selection process for some people but aesthetics and sustainability may be more important to others. Material selection Consideration should be holistic and reflective of the entire project life cycle , describe your material selection and how it works for each of the following stages: • o Feasibility phase : Building functional requirement • o Design phase • o Construction phase • o Maintenance materials I used: frame: aluminium windows: balexco 60 bedrooms and sitting area floor: vitrified tiles toilet: ceramic tiles kitchen: polished, porcelain tiles parking: paver blocks Student name @Student ID Page 9 of 17 Civil Engineering Communication roof: white agreegate false ceiling: gypsum board insulated blocks type of concrete c40 min 300 words 2.3 House Characteristics: Based on the goal you have set in the beginning of your project , your home characterise should be inline with it . describe the spaces , and how they connect .

1.0 Project Introduction
Life in the countryside has always excited me. For a long time, I have deliberated on
implementing an impressive design of my dream house inspired by the farmhouse concept. A
farmhouse fits the aspect of dream house for lifetime memories for generations to come. To
achieve this dream, am focused in utilizing the expansive space in my native land an area thought
as an idle rural dwelling to give it a new face. The farm-house will be designed through
integration of nature and luxury to give the house more life. The reason for building my dream
house from where I come from because I have been longing to experience that life in my true
home with the right people in it. Again, it will beautifully have crafted to harbour a spectacular
viewing gazing the extensive backyard.
Considerably, the farmhouse concept allows for inclusion of extensive space to accommodate a
large family which is a way of our culture. I want the house to have a big sitting area for me and
my family to be comfortable in sitting as there will be a big majles. The purpose is that I wanted a
house that has a lot space. There will be ground floor/ first floor/ second floor. The farmhouse is a
symbol of the persistence of the past.
I refer to my dream house a masterpiece and at the core of polishing, I have a preference for
constructing a majles. A farmhouse without a majle goes against its purpose to be homely and
accommodative. With a majli, one is never alone. It gives a home a perception of a home open to
visitors. My purpose for the majli is to allow enough space for socializing and sharing with guests
and family members without limitation. People make a majlis.
This project documents building my dream house which will be completed by accomplishing
every desired objective (Wentling, 2016.) The project aims to ensure the planning, organization,
construction, and completion of the dream house within three months with a budget not exceeding
$300,000.
Brief description:





It’s a farm-house located in Buri, Bahrain.
The concept that I want is to have a very big sitting place for the gathering and I want
everything to be in one place.
The sitting place (majles) is 13.2 x 10.5m. I want it to be very high, so it looks grand. The
height is 3.6 m long. I don’t want any beams to be available in between.
Beams should be made less and hidden, if any.

Outside facilities: parking spot, swimming pool, watchman cabin, garden
Ground floor: 2 bedrooms. 1 would be for guests and 1 would be for my parents, so that when
they get old, they don’t have to go ups...
