One Community is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization of world changing people taking a comprehensive approach to maximize the ease of replicating sustainable living and the number of people that can access it. Our collaborative approach engages all demographics and creates new ways to live a more fulfilled life in every way. Every component is open source and can be built modularly, which removes the barriers for duplication while we expand our global network of sharing and creating even more for The Highest Good of All. We are comprehensively and simultaneously addressing food, energy, construction, fulfilled living, adult and child education models, social architecture, sustainable and ethical business practices, and thinking and creating for The Highest Good of All because we see these thing as interconnected and essential to address as a group if a globally transformational solution is to be successful. We are doing this because we see it as a clear and viable path to positively and permanently impact life for everyone and everything on this planet. This is our weekly update blog (#34) coving our progress for the week of October 14th, 2013.

This last week Philip Gill (Interior and Furniture Designer and Owner of Philip Gill Design) created a queen-sized bed design to go with the full-bed designs for the earthbag village. He also added in a ladder for access to a loft area. The next step is adding in this loft and adjusting the design in 3D inside the actual domes.
This last week our team completed the Water Saving Shower Heads page. Here is one example from the new page:
Roadrunner’s shower start technology saves water, money, and time in the shower by monitoring the water until it reaches the bathing temperature of ninety-degrees then changes to a trickle which is the conservation mode. Pull the cord to return to normal flow to continue your shower before you get in the shower or after conditioning, shaving, or shampooing.
“The ShowerStart feature only works intermittently.”
“The water volume and pressure is so good it is hard to believe I’m saving water.”
“I replaced an older version of this evolve shower head. The original was great but this one is really great!”
“Not as much pressure as previous model I have purchased with the same flow rate, so not quite what I wanted.”
“I also installed the Metlund D’MAND recirculation pump at the same time (goes next to water heater or under the sink) and it works brilliantly with this evolve product.”
This last week Karl Harris (Architect Drafter, Designer, and founder of Harris Design & Technology Services) and the team finished the 3D details of the SEGO Center group-kitchen pantry and dry-storage area. This area features front and back glass walls to allow more natural light into the dining dome from the North sliding glass door entry and to reduce hiding places for pests. It also has sliding doors for easier addition and removal of food from this area.
The Strawbale Village focus for the last week was on the internal truss system that will help support the straw bale arches. This export and work is compliments of Dave Walen (Architectural Drafter & Designer and owner of Dave Philip Walen Design):
