One Community is forwarding the conscious eco-uprising through open source and free-shared DIY models for radically sustainable living and self-replicating teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities. It’s The Highest Good of All, peaceful, collaborative, cooperative, and designed to create a sustainable world within our lifetime.

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 August 25th, 2019 edition (#335) 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: @6:40
DUPLICABLE CITY CENTER: @8:12
HIGHEST GOOD FOOD: @9:50
HIGHEST GOOD EDUCATION: @10:44
HIGHEST GOOD SOCIETY: @11:49
One Community is forwarding the conscious Eco-uprising 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 consulted with an electrician and worked on creating the Murphy bed and Earthbag Village dome home electrical layouts in SketchUp 3D. You can see some of this work here and we’d say we’re about 50% done with these layout details.
Shadi Kennedy (Artist and Graphic Designer) also completed his 63rd week developing the Murphy bed instructions. This week’s focus was standardization of the page layouts, part colors, labels, and other details for the table and benches instructions. Every one of these images has been edited in some way during the last week.
And Bahy Ahmed (Architect) joined the team and completed his first week helping with the Earthbag Village 4-dome cluster roof designs. This week Bahy created this presentation outlining why he’d suggest adding colored polycarbonate entry points for natural light.
And this version 1.0 incorporation of these ideas into the 4-dome cluster roof. These designs incorporate colorful natural lighting, an additional central dome ceiling option, and additional roofing around the entire perimeter to help with shading the windows and protecting the walls.
One Community is forwarding the conscious Eco-uprising 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 12th week helping update the City Center AutoCAD and SketchUp files and designing the rainwater harvesting system. This week he redesigned the Living Dome patio to maximize space and minimize the need for unique dome pieces, found a new pivot door for the cupola, and started working on fixing a mistake in the Living Dome floor height.
Ron Huang (Mechanical Engineer) continued with his 16th week working on the Energy Modeling for our LEED Platinum certification and City Center open source HVAC design tutorial. This week he continued fine tuning the new hydronic HVAC to reduce unmet hours by ramping up loads and running simulations to see how the thermal zones responded. Basement, Kitchen, & Dining still shown high unmet hours.
Sneha Dongre (Structural Engineer) also continued with her 21st week helping with the Duplicable City Center structural details. This week’s focus was continued work on the sliding door entryway frames and correcting more AutoCAD irregularities found on the domes.
Mateus Barretto (Civil Engineer) continued with his 3rd week helping with the City Center plumbing designs. This week Mateus standardized the plumbing files as per the One Community AutoCAD Template. You can see some of this work here.
One Community is forwarding the conscious Eco-uprising 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:
This week the core team continued with week 22 of our development of the open source dams, lakes, and water-retention landscape design tutorial. This week we did a final editing review that included fixing spelling and grammar errors, adding US customary units to the metric units listed, updating imagery, adding some additional videos, and changing the order of some of the content.
The core team also continued the cost analysis details for the 100-chicken coop. This week we started standardizing the formatting of our past work and adding pictures and purchasing links for all the materials.
One Community is forwarding the conscious Eco-uprising 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 forwarding the conscious Eco-uprising 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:
The core team working with Brian Gilb (Project Management Professional – PMP) also again updated our promotion and win-win pages to make them more streamlined and user-friendly. You can see some of the updates here.
Emilio Nájera (Digital Marketer) also continued with his 42nd week as part of the marketing team. This week he worked on keyword research for “DIY Dam Design and Construction” landing page, explored options for the Google Accelerator Program to improve the overall performance of the current and future campaigns, and fixed a “non-compliance” issue with our Google Ads account.
Jin Hua (Web Marketer and Graphic Designer) also helped fix several website errors Google identified, reviewed all of Emilio’s work, and helped create the reports shown here to demonstrate the positive results our campaign fine-tuning has produced.
