A multi-use chalet

In passing through the Muden Valley in KZN, I called in at my acquaintances who own a lodge there. We got chatting and Bryan expressed the idea of developing a half dozen or more private chalets.

He said that they were regularly turning passing customers away for lack of overnight accommodation. Farmers in the valley had also expressed the wish to own a chalet each which would be for their retirement when their farms were left to their youngsters. With all this variation of potential uses of the would-be chalets, I’ve contrived a layout that would pander to the anticipated requirements of a varied clientele.

The unit shown here can serve as:

  • A weekend getaway or holiday home.
  • A let-able unit in collaboration with an established lodge.
  • A time-share unit for four or more partners.
  • A permanent retirement home. A special ramp to reach the first floor level is shown for retirees.

Essential to the building development would be to preserve the established natural biome, in which a mini game reserve has been created. Wouldn’t you just want to be there?
