This page will evolve with the open source project-launch blueprinting of the Cob 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 Cob Village. As part of our global transformation approach to Highest Good housing, the Cob Village will provide 20 resident units and 8 visitor units with a social/recreational/developmental focus of artistic and creative expression. In support of this, this village will provide a central playhouse and presentation structure and 4 different wings dedicated to art and creativity.
As we complete all necessary plans, we will open source and free-share here:
