Creating a New Earth – One Community Weekly Progress Update #12

We believe creating a new earth is a process of:

  1. Deciding a new earth model is possible and desirable
  2. Creating a specific strategy and blueprints for accomplishing it
  3. Free-sharing the blueprints so others can duplicate and evolve everything we do for The Highest Good of All

We are on our path to accomplishing these three focus points and collaboratively creating this new earth with the people who agree with us that it is possible. One Community’s physical location will forward this movement as the first of many self-replicating teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities to be built around the world. This is our weekly progress update (#12) covering our accomplishments for the week of  5/13/2013.

THE EARTHBAG VILLAGE

Here is the updated layout for the earthbag village compliments of Doug Stenhouse (Architect and Water Color Artist). It includes the necessary buttress walls and the recent elevation changes made to better accomodate the plumbing. Updates being made this week to this drawing are:

  • Placement of all windows so they are South facing
  • Special ADA compliant units with easiest access to the toilets and showers
  • A few other minor tweaks and updates with stair and ramp placements

Here is the initial plumbing sketch as well. This image shows our thinking about moving all the collected rain water and using the hot water from the showers as additional heating for the Tropical Atrium.

 TROPICAL ATRIUM PROGRESS

We continue to focus on two aspects of the Tropical Atrium:

Here is the 4th version of the eco-artistic hand thanks to the help of John Bassist (organizer of this e-group hub wiki as well as this Needs/Instincts Centered Economics (NICE) Facebook page). Once complete this hand will be positioned inside the Tropical Atrium to show how it will make up the internal growing terraces of this building.
