Children's House is like no other.
It's a community house planned and designed like a 3d jigsaw puzzle. It does not require nails, bolts or screws. Given the ~7,000 boards, pre-cut to size and shape, no tools are required to assemble the structure, only documentation listing the assembly order.
It has 11 bathrooms, 11 bedrooms and beds for thirty children. It is 7,000 square feet and 110 feet across with a 40 foot wide open area in the center. Every room has one or more windows.
The area surrounding the house is gently rolling hills with lawns and paths, babbling brooks, vegetable gardens, fruit orchards and trees for firewood. Once established, the goal would be for self-reliance and sustainability, environmentally friendly and economically feasible.
We have satellites in orbit and billionaires have 7,000 square foot garages to keep their cars snugly warm and safe at night, so there's no reason this house couldn't be put up and every reason to try everything reasonable to provide a safe place for children. If we were honoring children they'd be in a house like this: NOT living in sewers in 'all' countries.
When the view count is high enough, this house will become reality. So if you'd like to see this house put up, share the link.
