Before building the House, we have to look for the materials that we will use during the construction. It's about finding local businesses that provide the materials we need without being too expensive. This step also establishes a first budget for the House.

The prefabrication step is an big step in the process of building the House. most parts of the House are prefabricated (In EPFL) in order to reduce construction time on site.

The materials of the House are mostly reused in the following years but the storage capacity is limited. We looked for other storage solutions.
