who we are

About

Digital Woodoo was founded in 2020 with the vision of being able to provide a solution to the housing crisis within Cumbria and surrounding areas.

We have been working closely with the team from Open Systems Lab who have created a modern method of construction called WikiHouse. WikiHouse allows anyone to build their own home. Using CAD and CNC machining we are able to produce entire homes from sheets of Plywood or OSB.

the team

Once you have a vision of what you’d like to build we can work with you to design, manufacture and build your dream.

The simplicity of the WikiHouse system means that it can be transported to any location and assembled with little to no knowledge of construction. Just bring a mallet and we’ll show you how to assemble your own home or garden room.

WikiHouse

WikiHouse is based on a distributed manufacturing model where small local workshops such as ourselves will produce WikiHouse components for their local area. We aim to initially provide small garden rooms and extensions whilst expanding our capacity to allow us to build full size homes.

MCCH – Mass Customised Community Housing

This report, commissioned by Digital Woodoo and written by Architecture Unknown explores the mechanisms behind how Mass Customised Community Housing can be created. The report examines the reasons why communities need MCCH and gives a detailed example of how using the flexibility of WikiHouse build, a community can be built and adapted to the changing needs of its residents. Please contact us to request a copy.

Micro-factories for homes

Written by Open Systems lab, this toolkit lays out the requirements needed to build a WikiHouse Micro-factory. This report has been designed to enable other community lead groups to set up a manufacturing facility, to meet the housing supply needs for their area. Please contact us to request a copy.
