This page will evolve with the open source project-launch blueprinting of the Compressed Earth Block Village. When they are finalized, this page will include the free-shared and county approved complete building plans, Revit, AutoCAD, and Sketchup file downloads, and all other building plan aspects of this village. We are first refining and demonstrating the open source strategy and detail we’ll use for this with the 3-dome cluster crowdfunding campaign, we’ll then expand this process as we open source the complete Earthbag Village (Pod 1) and Duplicable City Center®, and then we’ll do the same for this village and the other 5 villages.
This page is specifically for the building plans of the Compressed Earth Block Village. As part of our global transformation approach to Highest Good housing, this village will demonstrate the durability, affordability, and creative potential that is possible with this ultra-sustainable building method. Being planned as a beautiful and creative education and health and wellness retreat village, the Compressed Earth Block Village incorporates a 2-story half-moon design with 10 treatment rooms, 4 classrooms, 2 meeting halls, kitchen and dining for 150+ people, laundry for 300+ and a diversity of rooftop and outdoor recreation and relaxation areas. As we complete all necessary plans, we will open source and free-share here:
