the new streets 

Where's the drill, the right drill? Did I leave the key in the shed or is it in the basement? My neighbor actually gave me the ladder back. Tomorrow an acquaintance wants to wallpaper and needs company and technical support. I'm supposed to get the trestle table for him. Who does not know that. Do It Yourself has found its way. All over the world it is becoming increasingly easier for people to repair things, refurbish objects or carry out maintenance. Two-wheelers, bicycles, motorbikes, skateboards, inline skates, the list can be long. There is a large number of instructions for easy and difficult repairs. You can follow the video step by step. Disassembling engines that will hopefully end up working better than before.

But having tools for all these small repairs is an expensive proposition. Last but not least, the many tools take up a lot of space from the living space.

So what can you do if the next time would be different in a new street? A settlement with new houses is to be built there. At the height of the middle of a new street there would be space for large residential building complexes. This is a classic street that you can find everywhere these days. The structure and the number of residential units is limited to 500.

With a street built on both sides, there are 250 apartments on each side. Buy space and tools once and make them available to everyone. This is a new road. Somewhere on every street there is a building that is built to fulfill all activities in the hobby supply. do-it-yourself The space is rather secondary. What is much more interesting is that there is a large workshop warehouse in which all the tools are available

which otherwise have to be bought up to 500 times in every street. Must be bought by each individual. Whenever something is needed. This kind of new street concept is easier to implement than you think. In short, it all looks like this. With an app you can see the catalog of tools and accessories. The app is also the door to gain access to the building, to the workshop. If you need a drill and a ladder, you can reserve them for a time window of work. This also applies to household appliances. Vacuum cleaners, irons and pressure washers to name a few. If you want to remove a tool, each part must be released from an electrical holder. This bracket ensures that the app also recognizes that everything that is shown in the app's catalog is really in the room. It also ensures that anyone who takes the tool leaves a record of it in the log. This would be technically safe and no discrepancies can arise. There are certain societies, citizens and villages out there where you can do without all that and only register what you are currently using. However, since such a new building with all the tools has to be purchased once at the beginning, the costs are spread across all new homeowners. A new street with 500 residential units will cost a lot of money, that is undisputed. Does an additional building with a workshop and tools then cost between 150,000 and 300,000?

Let's look at the bill for each. Everyone would have to pay between 300 and 600 once. That's not a lot when you consider that you really have everything in the way of tools

finds what otherwise quickly costs 10,000 and more. You yourselves know how expensive the tools that can be found in the shed, in the hobby room and in the basement were.


But workshops and a large hobby room are much more in every Neue Straße. They are spaces of encounter. A small tea kitchen and a chat about which project you are currently working on is pre-programmed. A New Road that is self-managing in that regard. Incidentally, it shouldn't mean that each tool will only exist once. That would quickly be derided into a failed model. Every tool and every accessory as well as the machine 5x ? It could be like this. What makes such a new road so interesting for the environment and industry. Sales drop at first, but they remain continuous for each street. As a result, less is produced. It will take less space in stores to offer storage space in hardware stores. Seen over many years, a whole new branch will shift with just one new cog that was new, thought differently. The producing and developing industry of tools and machines can offer high-quality and durable. The climatic footprint that every household will have in Neue Strasse from now on will be significantly reduced. Because only 1% of tools for 500 households have to be bought.


I like the idea of the new street. There is also a concept for old streets. I've seen it myself when visiting another city. In large residential complexes with 10 residents or more, a large basement room can be converted into a common hobby room with tools. The household company collects money once and each household appliance may only exist once in each house. A room for all residents who are also neighbors. Everyone has to take care of the devices and is responsible for it. A model for adults and sincere people. It is only when we work together that deep connections and connections to our neighbors actually develop. Something like this has a future and should become a new standard.
