Ravenia#1 : Basic Plan


In the morning and start to post a new thing, we’re happy as we received a comment from someone in this post. Thanks Sean, for stepping by and leave comment about how houzz has influenced us :D.

Here’s the basic plan.

The front  direction is North East. The front room (white floor) size is 2.5m x 3m. The bathroom size is 1.5m x 2m. Total length-width is 12m x 12m.

The total building area is approximaly 36m sq.

The width house itself is 6m.  I’ve put the original position of windows and doors. I’ve modify the surrounding walls height 80cm, in fact, there’s no surrounding wall & fence. We have to build it.

Let’s start the project….


Tools we love


In designing our SSH, we’re using this portable software : Sweet Home 3D. It’s easy to use. The furnitures they have, are not branded nor have fixed dimension.  We can arrange and change the dimension of  all furnitures so they can adapt the size of the room. We love this feature! For rendering, your PC should have enough memory otherwise it will make you PC hang for a while [could be 5minutes or more]. More stuffs on your files, less luck you can render it to 3D! It does happen to my laptop. My hubby has his own strategy to handle that condition. After he created the basic plan, he ‘beautify’ one 1 room only, then take picture from some angles. After he got them, he remove all stuff on that room then create another room, and repeat the same steps.

Sometimes, I design online using my deco. On this site, we can see many famous branded  furniture & accessories for rooms. Also, we can buy directly through it. How use use the 3D tools is same easy as Sweet Home 3D. We can render by taking picture of our desired room soon.

Once we have no idea for our miserable crap, we go to Houzz.com for enlightment :). There’re so many good picture and it can be classifed based on our search. For example, we would like to see how to decorate the small bedroom, just type it up on the search box and voila…. thousands amazing desired pictures will show up!


You may try them if you want to be like us, the interior-designer-wanna-be 😀

Have a nice day.



Finally, house becomes our main need after food & cloth to be more independent and more mature.

A few months ago, we hunted house in North Bekasi, but there’s no ‘click’ on both of us in choosing the house. Find the complete story here.

Then, from a tweet, we found this house. You may read the complete story here.

It’s located on Jonggol at one of the housing cluster complex of the famous developer.

There’s affordable cluster which fit with our requirements.

We went to survey and booked.

It’s SSH which stands for Small Simple House,

SSH means less space we have, less energy to keep it tidy & clean, am I absolutely right?!

Ours is 36/72, but actually it’s 36/145 :).

We’re in proccess on getting our first house.

As fast as we arrived home after surveying and booking the house, we’re so excited to make the plan of it.

For our great passion and due to lack of our laptop’s virtual memory, we love to share our scarp 🙂

Enjoy 🙂
