One Community is connecting world change with having more fun. We are doing this by designing open source and free-shared sustainability components (food, energy, housing, education, for-profit and non-profit economic design, and global stewardship practices) that will provide more time, money, and access to fulfilled living practices and an enriching social architecture.

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 the September 8th, 2019 edition (#337) of our weekly progress update detailing our team’s development and accomplishments:
Here is the bullet-point list of this last week’s design and progress discussed in detail in the video above:
HIGHEST GOOD HOUSING: @6:14
DUPLICABLE CITY CENTER: @7:33
HIGHEST GOOD FOOD: @9:16
HIGHEST GOOD EDUCATION: @9:41
HIGHEST GOOD SOCIETY: @10:51
One Community is connecting world change with having more fun 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 finished creating the most sustainable hand dryer options page shown here. This included finishing all the descriptions, adding links to purchase, finishing the resources section, and sharing it on social media.
Brianna Olsen (Sustainability Researcher) also completed her 12th week as a member of the team. This week she began taking her research on the most sustainable faucet options and organizing and formatting it for publication on the website. You can see some of this work here.
Shadi Kennedy (Artist and Graphic Designer) completed his 65th week developing the Murphy bed instructions. This week’s focus was final standardization of the numbers and labels for the Bench and Table parts shown here.
And Bahy Ahmed (Architect) completed his 2nd week helping with the Earthbag Village 4-dome cluster roof designs. This week Bahy created version 2.0 shown here with optional colored lighting over the main window area, loft access to the rooftop patio, stairway access to the patio, door access to the spa, and other details you can see here.
One Community is connecting world change with having more fun through a Duplicable and Sustainable City Center that is LEED Platinum certified/Sustainable, can feed 200 people at a time, provide laundry for over 300 people, is beautiful, spacious, and saves resources, money, and space:
This week Yuqiao Zhang (Architectural Designer/Drafter) completed his 14th week helping update the City Center AutoCAD and SketchUp files and designing the rainwater harvesting system. This week he finished updates to the ADA bathrooms and sunrise patio and chose and modeled all the gutter attachments. He also updated the catchment zones and related spreadsheet details.
Ron Huang (Mechanical Engineer) continued with his 18th week working on the Energy Modeling for our LEED Platinum certification and City Center open source HVAC design tutorial. This week he further revised the air loop and hydronic configuration and reassessed the energy usage to see if we meet Platinum standards yet.
Sneha Dongre (Structural Engineer) also continued with her 23rd week helping with the Duplicable City Center structural details. This week she completed development of entryway sliding door design in AutoCAD.
Kimya Azadmard (Senior Plumbing Engineer) additionally continued with his 4th week as a member of the team. Kimya’s focus this week was continuing to build the new Title Block that will function for the City Center plumbing sheets and then all the sheets for other disciplines too. This week he changed the Background color of the Paper space to black, set up the specific Plot Style Table, and began isolating the individual floor plans to reduce the file size for each sheet and all reference files.
One Community is connecting world change with having more fun through Highest Good food that is more diverse, more nutritious, locally grown and sustainable, and part of our open source botanical garden model to support and share bio-diversity:
One Community is connecting world change with having more fun through Highest Good education that is for all ages, applicable in any environment, adaptable to individual needs, far exceeds traditional education standards, and more fun for both the teachers and the students. This component of One Community is about 95% complete with only the Open Source School Licensing and Ultimate Classroom construction and assembly details remaining to be finished. We’ll report on the final two elements to be finished as we develop them.
With over 8 years of work invested in the process, the sections below are all complete until we move onto the property and continue the development and open sourcing process with teachers and students – a development process that is built directly into the structure of the education program and everything else we’re creating too:
One Community is connecting world change with having more fun through a Highest Good society approach to living that is founded on fulfilled living, the study of meeting human needs, Community, and making a difference in the world:
This week, Emilio Nájera (Digital Marketer) continued with his 44th week as part of the marketing team. This week he launched the campaign for Dam and Lake Construction and began research and creation of the campaign for the new Most Sustainable Hand Dryers page.
