More good things in life seems like a worthwhile goal. Sustainability can support this by reducing our living expenses. Community can support this by better meeting our emotional needs. One Community is designing open source and free-shared teacher/demonstration hubs to demonstrate and share both as replicable components of a global collaboration for The Highest Good of All.

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 April 21st, 2019 edition (#317) of our weekly progress update detailing our team’s development and accomplishments:

One Community is helping people achieve more good things in life 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, Dean Scholz (Architectural Designer) continued working on the Earthbag Village (Pod 1). Here is weekly update #155 from Dean. This week’s focus, as shown in these images, was finishing the housing dome structures and working on the new doors and above-door window designs.
Shadi Kennedy (Artist and Graphic Designer) also completed his 47th week leading the development of the Murphy bed instructions. This week’s focus was creating a new “Pro Tip” icon that will include a QR code for additional web and video tutorials for improving the designs and another round of additions and updates to the electrical details. You can see some of this work here.
Hemanth Kotaru (Structural Engineer) completed his 33rd week helping with the structural engineering research and calculations for the Earthbag Village (Pod 1). This week he added cost analysis details for the nails that pass the engineering tests and finished the final version of the tutorial for the nail and rebar selection and spacing tool by adding cell number references and final content details. You can see this behind-the-scenes work here.
One Community is helping people achieve more good things in life 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, the core team continued the process of 3D modeling the new Duplicable City Center interior design details for the library. This week we updated the texture for the brown sofa’s pillows to leather, changed the color of the green bean bag to red, and added books to the bookshelves on the right side. We also added a 1″ divider between the floor colors and placed different color pads on the bench.
And then Dipti Dhondarkar (Electrical Engineer) continued with her 112th week volunteering by re-modeling the library in DIALux to test these new furniture layouts and developing the lighting designs. You can see some of this work here.
Anvita Kumari Pandey (Civil Engineer) continued helping with the Duplicable City Center Costs. This week she researched new LED bulb options and continued updating the paint, primer, and sealer costs and area calculations. You can see some of this work here.
Tanya Griffin, Aubryanne Boyle, and Allie Marsh (Interior Designers from Lotus Designs) completed their 17th week helping with the Duplicable City Center interior design details. This week’s focus was floor, furniture, and table research and finalizing the windows for the Social and Dining Dome storyboards, some of which you can see under development here.
Sneha Dongre (Structural Engineer) also continued with her 10th week helping with the Duplicable City Center structural details. This week’s focus was researching solutions to dome-design and import challenges with ETABs, then switching to SAP2000 and working on newly identified AutoCAD errors when importing there. You can see some of this work here.
Elizabeth Kahn (Environmental Consultant) completed her 14th week as a researcher with our team. This week she began researching the most sustainable hand dryer options for the upcoming most sustainable hand dryer options page. You can see some of this behind-the-scenes work here.
One Community is helping people achieve more good things in life 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 writing the behind-the-scenes narrative and detailed food rollout plan. We continued revising our goat care details by reviewing “Our Daily Goat Routine at Chick-a-Woof Ranch” video that focuses primarily on one farm’s daily goat routine, and then transcribing the steps and adding them to our Goggle Doc. You can see some of this behind-the-scenes work here.
Guy Grossfeld (Graphic Designer) also completed his 15th week working on creating an open source icon and symbol set for our permaculture designs. This week he finished final edits and additions to wrap up his part of this open source component.
One Community is building the foundations for how humanity creates a sustainable world 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 helping people achieve more good things in life 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 the core team working with Brian Gilb (Project Management Professional – PMP) continued with our 2nd week of updating our business plan and editing related content to simplify several of associated overview pages.
