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 demonstrating sustainable progress management 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, Julia Meaney (Researcher and Assistant to Executive Director) completed her 31st week with the team. Julia worked on the “Door and Window Research” Google Doc, resolving comments where feedback had been integrated and adding comments for finalizing the content. She also made format edits to the “Best Doors” section to prepare it for the site. Next, Julia finished finalizing the format of the “Sustainable Roadways, Walkways, and Landscaping” webpage. She fixed broken links and added Title text to linked sources. She also made final edits to the tables of content and spacing throughout the page. Finally, Julia continued to work on the “Net-zero Bathroom and Earthbag Village Water Collection and Septic Design Edited Content for Web” Google Doc. She resolved comments where her feedback had been addressed while integrating responses to her own questions and concerns about the content. She then continued to make her way through the Doc, working to edit the content for grammar and spelling as well as formatting it for the site. She also edited the corresponding Google Spreadsheet and made sure to update screenshots and links on the Doc accordingly. Furthermore, Julia formatted and backed up various sources from the “Resources” sections on the Doc to her Dropbox folder. ​See images below that show​ ​some of this work.

DUPLICABLE CITY CENTER PROGRESS

duplicable city center, open source city hub, laundry, dining, swimming pool, hot tub, kitchen, library, game roomOne Community is demonstrating sustainable progress management 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 reviewing and fixing the latest Duplicable City Center SketchUp file. This week the focus was on the Social Dome, more specifically the core team completed patch work on the Social Dome wall to accommodate an updated location of the door, and redesigned the 18″ deep sitting area around a column close to the pool, as well as a sitting circle connected to the pool. We also designed a curved bench that is connected to the column, with a sitting area around it situated between two Social Dome doors. To complement these updates, the core team designed bench cushions for the wall bench and around the column sitting bench, as well as a curved bench back support. We also reshaped the floor around the inside pool, and removed one of the pool waterfall features next to the right door. See images below for examples of this work in progress.

Duplicable City Center, sustainable Progress Management, One Community Weekly Progress Update #530

Charles Gooley (Web Designer) completed his 31st week helping with web design, now focused on the Duplicable City Center Engineering tutorial. He focused on improving the visual layout of the tutorial by removing all padding indentation and aligning all content to the left. Additionally, he revised the headings to ensure proper structure, such that sections with the format X and X.X are designated as h2, X.X.X as h3, and X.X.X.X as h6. The pictures below offer a visual representation of this work.

Julio Marín Bustillos (Mechanical Engineer) completed his 14th week helping with the City Center Dome Hub Connector Engineering. This week Julio focused on re-designing the initial concept for the hub connector. Taking advantage of the dome’s symmetry, he devised a single design that could be applied to all nodes, with each design replicated five times throughout the geodesic dome. This approach significantly reduces the time required to populate the entire dome with hub connectors compared to the previous design. Additionally, Julio conducted FEA simulations and identified stress concentrations primarily occurring at the curvature of the brackets. As a result, he concluded that increasing the thickness of this specific section could potentially prevent bracket failure during simulations. The thickness was increased by using a one-inch filet on both sides. The pictures below provide a glimpse of this work.

Yihan Liu (Software Engineer) completed her 8th week helping with the Highest Good Network software. This week, Yihan focused on resolving a bug related to the weekly summary submission date. She identified the target file named WeeklySummary.jsx, and after analyzing the code, proposed adding an uploadDate to the weeklySummaries object to solve the issue. Yihan modified the file, tested the changes, and found that the weeklySummaries object wrote to the server as expected. However, the object read from the server still did not include uploadDate. To address this, Yihan determined that the backend needed to be modified. In addition, Yihan conducted code reviews for PR#823 and PR#352, and found that the toggle on the weekly summary report page was still set to “requested” even after changing it to “posted” and refreshing the page. ​See the pictures​ below related to this work.

Bada Kim (Full Stack Software Developer) completed his 1st week helping with the Highest Good Network software. This week, Bada explored and addressed a series of technical issues, with a focus on improving the development process and resolving bugs. An undocumented error pertaining to node-sass was discovered early in the week, which was subsequently communicated to the team via the Slack platform to aid in future troubleshooting. Additionally, a comment was made on the setup documentation, indicating an ambiguity concerning the non-usage of ESLint for the front-end repository. Bada also delved into a bug reported by a colleague that was causing sporadic page crashes when a task item was clicked. It was confirmed that the crash was due to certain task items lacking the “num” property. An enhancement was proposed for the local setup documentation, inspired by the earlier node-sass error. In tandem with these investigations, approval was granted to PR #809 after successful video confirmations. Bada also initiated PR #817, which was opened to address the node-sass error that non-intel Mac machines were experiencing during the local setup. This issue was scrutinized further to determine why the initial quick fix was unsuccessful. Further investigation into the task item bug resulted in the opening of PR #819, which proposed the addition of the “num” property to task items that were missing it. See the images below for this work.
