Our original classic design octagon cottage, with beautiful, open-beam redwood and cedar ceiling. Assembles weather-tight in one day.
Our self-supporting roof/ceiling system allows you complete interior design freedom.
Here are a few ideas of floor plan layouts for the Hale-8 which we have produced for some of our clients...
Pick one of them, or use these ideas to come up with your own personalized interior living space!
Here is a sample Hale-8 that also qualifies as a "Hawaii Efficiency Studio". We are also providing you with some estimated building cost ranges, depending upon how you want to approach your building project:
Some more of the custom Hale-8 interior layouts we have done for clients:
The wall panels were ordered taller to allow for more vertical room in the sleeping loft.
Downstairs is an open kitchen/living area with a 10' x 20' sleeping loft above:
And there is a bathroom extension that you can see on the
right side of the above photo.
It is possible to extend (with a rectangular extension) or expand (with radiating sections) the basic Hale-8 design, and to add various kinds of decks, open or covered. Here are a few ideas . . .
Here's another extended Hale-8 floor plan. This floor plan has an open living space with the high open-beam ceiling, and an extension containing the kitchen and bathroom, besides a covered entry area and a carport:
It is possible to add wrap-around lanais and/or rooms, on all or part of your Hale. Here is an idea for expanding the Hale-8 with some radiating room extensions:
Sample Interior Floor Plan:
Here is an "Expanded Hale-8 Studio", with a Full 8-sided Wrap-Around Covered Lanai which accommodates a bathroom and kitchen under part of the expanded roof area:
And you can see from the above, that your options for adding more rooms on the covered lanai area are up to your creativity and your own lifestyle needs. With those open lanai areas, you already have the floor and ceiling constructed. It is an easy matter to add walls at any time, and you will have additional rooms that you can use for various purposes.
You can build expanded Hales on post-and-pier, or on a concrete pad foundation, whichever you like:
You can have 8', 9' or 10' expanded lanai and room areas, for example. Extending outwards means you will want to build higher walls on the main Hale-8, so that the extended roof over your lanai/outer rooms will still be high enough for a good view out of all the windows.
Here is a sample plan with 2 bedrooms, kitchen and bath added and full wrap-around lanai. It also includes some estimated cost ranges to build a home like this here in Hawaii:
Here is our Hale-8, with optional roof-top cupola:
Here is how the inside of the Cupola can look:
Here is another beach-front Hale-8 cottage with Cupola:
Any Hale-8 can have a roof-top cupola.
Here is just one sample sketch of an interior layout of the Hale-8 in the 2 photos above:
Here is a 2-Story Hale-8 with Wrap-around Lanais on both levels, and another adjoining Hale-8, both with Cupolas:
And here is another one.... "Shangri-La":
