Rent first, then buy. This way you can also build your own house in Almere with a low income
November 5th 2020
Would you like to build your own house? But can you not get a mortgage, for example because you are a starter or self-employed person? Or because your income is too low? Then phase 2 of the self-build project WikiHouse De Stripmaker in Almere Buiten is something for you! Steenvlinder INC offers 11 self-build plots here through a financially very attractive rental / purchase construction. For more information, visit www.wikihousedestripmaker.nl .
Rent first, then buy. And yet DIY
Steenvlinder INC will give you a DIY budget with which you can build your WikiHouse. You have a maximum of 12 months to finish the house. The first 6 months you do not pay any compensation to Steenvlinder INC. After 6 months, you pay 400 euros per month as a usage fee. Your home is already habitable, but not completely finished. You then have 6 months to finish the house completely. After that you rent the house for at least 2 years. During that period you pay a monthly rent that is never higher than the social rent limit (with the exception of lot 12). This allows you to apply for housing benefit. After that, you have 5 years of purchase right at a favorable, predetermined price.
WikiHouse self-build homes: affordable, sustainable and tasty yourself
WikiHouse is an affordable, sustainable and digitally produced timber frame construction kit with which you can design and build your own house. Different housing types are available in phase 2: small (56 square meters), medium (67 square meters) and large (73 square meters). The volumes of the houses are fixed, but you can determine the floor plan and facade layout with the architect. Is your home design ready? Then a computer-controlled cutter mills all the wooden sheet material into handy parts. Together they form the kit for the hull of your home. This way you can assemble your house yourself or with the help of your future neighbors, family and friends. As if it is a big puzzle.
Self-construction is really building yourself
Because the WikiHouse concept is so simple, you don't need a contractor to assemble your house. This project therefore offers a challenge for people who take self-build literally. Build the skeleton, insulate it, and then finish the facades, interior walls and roof yourself. You can find a professional yourself or together with the neighbors for the installations or other things that you do not like.
Also 'normal' buying is possible in WikiHouse De Stripmaker in Almere
Would you rather 'just' buy a lot and build your own WikiHouse on it? That is also possible. In the first phase of WikiHouse De Stripmaker, three more lots are available. Including a home (of around 80 square meters), the costs start at 227,000 euros.
