Pacific Coast project in progress

A biologically healthy, ecologically dedicated, organically passive, regional material eco home 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!
