"May your Tribe Increase", sustainable non ecology-damaging construction coupled with sustainable living systems is what the World needs now. Thanks for sharing your creativity.

Absolutely fantastic site!! I commend you for the resources you have put together with the experts to communicate the future of home building. I hope to at some point in the near future build my own earth-friendly home, and your site is a great place to start. Thank you and your friends for their dedication and spirit.

Hello, I came across your site while just searching around the web on green homes and architecture. I am currently going to HMI RMS (hminet.org) as a highschool junior. It is very environmentally based and I have always loved nature. I live in a small town in SW Vermont. I am very concerned with the environment and very interested in architecture. When I return home in december I will be beginning an architecture internship with a friend of my dads and hopefully get some good experience before I head to college. I just wanted to drop you a note because I am very inspired by what you have done and want to show my appreciation. It's a very, very beautiful thing. Thank you so much.

Cruising, looking for quonset section rustable roofing and ran across your site. Since I'm building my own poured in place concrete very best nightmare to live in I've got too many questions, and too many "what if you did it this way?" so, shoot the architect and start building. Love your site, keep up the great work, and when it all falls apart (society) laugh loudest. (oh, and do invest in some fire arms) or a catapult!

I recently bought a small fixer-upper house in Goldendale Washington which I will be remodeling and fixing up in the near future, and I hope to do so in as environmentally responsible a way as possible. After saving for many years, my dream of having my own home without a rent or mortgage payment has become a reality. I hope to eventually build a green house on the south side of the house and maybe have some photovoltaics some day. At the age of 32, I'm very excited to become free from the demands of the dominant culture, able to explore my destiny more freely. I'm interested in becoming a sustainability/community building activist in Goldendale. We'll see how it goes as I'm a bit of an introvert. But as Sam Wise said to Frodo in the end of one of the movies, something like: "There's something good here on this earth and it's worth fighting for!" :) For my part that means encouraging others through example, creativity and fun to disengage from the dominant cultural values that are hurting the web of life on our planet, and co-create better, more effective social/educational/physical structures to replace the harmful, violent ones. I really appreciate your pioneering spirit and modeling of values and practices that leave gifts for future generations. --Levi Mason,
