To start, I thought of what the layout for the cottage could be. After deciding the measurements of the structure ( 8m by 12m) I drew a layout of what potentially the cottage can look like from birds eye view, side view and finally the front view.
After finishing the blueprints, I had to design a 3D version of my cottage by using Tinkercad. Using Tinkercad made it easy to design interior and exterior walls, windows and a roof.
This is a view of my cottage
Birds eye view with the roof and without the roof
Here are the different views of my cottage. These views helped calculate the different costs for painting the walls, putting a roof and heating the house.
Front and back of the house
After, I had to figure out the costs. I had to figure out the costs for the surface area of the exterior walls, the area of the rooftop, and the volume of the home in order to find the cost of paint, shingles, and heating.
Cost calculations for the exterior paint
Heating costs, Roof costs and Final costs.
After all, Mr. V would have to pay 1686 euros. I got this final cost by adding up the exterior paint (120 euros.) A Roof (540 euros) and then finally, the costs for the three months of heating (1026 euros.)
