Identifying the elements of a sustainable home at the CRAIC table.

This is an industry first where the various disciplines of the wood housing network sit together to discuss the many elements of a sustainable home and its market. We are taking the concept of partnership between business and community to a new level as we connect, collaborate, innovate, and create the most sustainable homes in Vancouver.

People are the connecting tissue in this emerging sustainable home market. The goal of this group is to establish a monthly meeting and discuss the various subjects that are involved in the holistic design of a sustainable home.

We want to discuss the housing needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

Agenda: Our suggested evenings are laid out like this: Meet-Greet-Eat, presentations on various aspects of sustainable homes, and then finish the evening with breakout sessions.

We request that each attendee contribute $20 for "appies" and the use of the space. Drinks can be purchased by each attendee.

More Info: The "Craic" pronounced "crack", is Gaelic meaning "how are you", the Irish Craic table is a long welcoming table for news, business, gossip, fun, entertainment, and enjoyable conversation. We use the Craic table as a venue for expression as we want our group to discuss in an open and fun matter as we tackle some difficult terminology and various construction methods.

The Group: We are attracting individuals who are interested in the development of sustainable homes. We are reaching out to home owners, architects, designers, suppliers, home builders, developers, realtor's, planners, academia, sustainable activists, green-thumbs, and anyone willing to provide input into how the various elements are installed to create a sustainable house.

At the CRAIC table we speak without fear of proprietary disclosure, as we hope to forge a progressive, constructive, determined group who are willing teach each other their knowledge and expertise.

Together we come to learn, listen, share, explore and express ourselves with a true purpose of nature in creating eco-homes, and designing sustainable vibrant urban communities.

The Product: A sustainable home is a high performing house that is created by an integrated design concept and constructed by a design build team. Together we will explore various housing options; homes with laneways/garden suites, density homes (income units), townhomes, multi-generational housing, multi-use village housing, co-housing, timeshare and recreational properties.

We will discuss all the best possibilities and create a bouillabaisse of sustainable homes deserving to be served at our CRAIC table.

To all, you are welcome at The CRAIC!
