Why is sustainable living important to you?

3 MM Americans/year hitting retirement with a $0 net worth. Students crushed with undischargable debt that prevents their qualifying for mortgages. A society hollowed out by the aggregation of wealth at the top, and little alternative way for home ownership for anyone with a score <680. As the standard of living falls, it would be nice to have a new button on the elevator between 'comfortable single family existence', and 'under a bridge'.

How involved do you want to be?... Passive member, plan on attending events, volunteering time, and/or hope to build your own home?

Came here to build the first of what I hope will be thousands.

What do you hope to get out of this experience?

Launch a product line of interiors for tiny houses based within shipping containers. Eventually, distributed manufacturing of kit and finished homes and accessories.

What skills do you have to offer?

Carpentry, plumbing, wiring, masonry, roofing, welding, concrete, CAD, SketchUp, and others I've not recognized.

Introduction

40 years in building and land development. Vertical and horizontal construction.
