Coastal Residence Nearing Completion
Biologically healthy, organically passive, regional material ecohome that's:
Addressing the housing shortage through design: three quiet, private, multigenerational
micropods that read as one larger residence with co-operative spaces for social health.
Supporting a Zero Debt, sustainable lifestyle through
simple, minimalist, architectural design of smaller spaces;
thoughtful engineering to economize the usage of premium quality, natural materials.
Built respectfully to, above, and better-than 2018 B.C. Building Code
officiated by multiple, highly-respected
accredited engineers, advanced building scientists and building biologists.
Created for good health of occupants and neighbours,
utilizing neuroscientific and immunologic design principles,
very low toxicity materials and site-sensitivity.
Again, with this second build we have been overwhelmed by positive support.
We are so happy to be part of a larger global movement, instead of being lonely outliers!
Thank you, friends!
