Why is sustainable living important to you?

Because there is no other way to live. My goal is to one day live using no more resources than could be fairly divided between each human being on the earth. Less is more!

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

Hope to build another home here in the mountains, when we one day buy land. I would love to trade labor! What a great idea!

What do you hope to get out of this experience?

Learn new skills, get great ideas, share some of my ideas, make like-minded friends.

What skills do you have to offer?

Light clay straw, cob, waddle and dob, conventional stick frame construction, lime plasters, natural clay plasters, some masonry... and an obsessive love of drawing tiny house floor plans.


Former parks worker turned tech support, I also play the violin, and have built a 12'x13' natural tiny home (in 2012 on my parent's land in Durham). I love tiny homes for their beauty, simplicity, affordability, and sustainability.
