Welcome to Anil Bhavan. This house in Irinjalakuda stands on 19 cents of land and has been built with sheer utility in mind.

» All rooms are spread across the ground floor and the minimal first storey has been built at a reduced height, owing to the presence of a temple nearby.

» The first storey doesn’t have any room, except the closed space built around the landing of the stairs. This space opens into an open terrace.

» The sit out is L-shaped and has been built at a reduced height so that the terrace on top of it can accommodate a flowerbed.

 Splendid interiors, awesome look- and the net cost is just Rs 35 lakh!

» As the aim was to build the house at a reduced cost, all luxury components were given a miss. Even the pieces of furniture used are old ones.

» The exterior has a minimalist look. Tile cladding and deployment of GI pipes in building the parapet have effectively reduced the cost.

» Six pillars find their place around the sit out. The cladding around the pillars and the window sills that boast a square shape render a contemporary look to the house. The same pattern has been ensured right from the gate.

» As the building was to house a family of three, the plan was such that it included two bedrooms and a study room for the child.

» Four bathrooms are there. Apart from the bedroom-attached bathrooms, two common bathrooms with entrance from the dining room and from outside the house have been included.

» The wash area finds its place beneath the stairs.

» While the front door is of teakwood, all other doors are readymade. The windows, in the meantime, have been made of pincoda wood.

» The walls have been constructed with locally available cut stones. This has help in cutting costs considerably.

» The cupboards in the kitchen and bedrooms have been made of aluminium hylam sheets.

» The windows have four doors, with the bottom ones constructed big and the top ones smaller. This helps in keeping open only the top windows open.

» All the rooms come with 2x2 size ivory hued tiles. The cost incurred per sq m comes to around Rs 35.

» As the family doesn’t own a car, a separate porch has not been constructed. However, provision for a car porch has been made in case one needs to be constructed in future.
