ONE COMMUNITY WEEKLY UPDATE DETAILS

HIGHEST GOOD HOUSING PROGRESS

Highest Good housing, cob construction, earthbag construction, straw bale construction, earthship construction, subterranean construction, sustainable homes, eco-homesOne Community is building a blueprint for transforming the planet through Highest Good housing that is artistic and beautiful, more affordable, more space efficient, lasts longer, DIY buildable, and constructed with healthy and sustainable materials:

This week the core team continued Sketchup design for the open source outdoor areas of the Recycled Materials Village (Pod 6). We continued designing the cable spool tables and seats (to match existing designs found online) and also designed a bicycle rack that uses recycled tires. We also completed the table and bench made from tires.
