21' Single-U, Single Family, Double Greenhouse, 1 Bedroom, Sleeps 4 (pullout couch), 1 Full Bath, 1100SQ'.

We are building a Holistic Model Home at our Community Prototype Site to showcase the beauty, sustainability, longevity & possibilities of an Earthship-Inspired Holistic Home in a Northern Climate. This building will require $144,000 to build, and we're looking for 144 investments of $1000. An individual can contribute $1000 or more to become a shareholder for this building, and multiple individuals can work together to collectively purchase a $1000 share/investment.

The image on the left is a top down view of the Fibonacci 1, the second smallest design in our Fibonacci collection of Holistic Homes. It is 1100SQ' with a double greenhouse and a Single-U design. The image on the right looks at the south and west sides of the home. This will serve as our Holistic Model Home for those looking to physically explore an alternative to conventional housing.   

Please see the documents below for more information on this investment

and our upcoming internship. 

Below these forms you can find our Construction Calendar which has an overview of the aspects of the build we will be working on each day. This calendar can help those looking to participate for a day or more choose the specific days where they can learn the aspects of the build that most interest them.
