Okay. I want to give the credit for the inspiration of this idea to Tom Peterson and Greg Lambert.
Here's the gist of the discussion/project...
I really don't like to assume but in this case I think that it's pretty safe to assume that everyone in this group over their lifetime thus far has seen and lived in more than a few homes, whether those homes be houses, apartments, condos, trailers, tents or whatever.... The point being that each one of us should by now have a more than good idea of what our ideal home would be. How it would look, the floor plan, how it would function, power sources, water management, waste management, various ammenities, etc. etc.
In any case, Tom has given us SEE as a base to begin building from. So we start with the base of our mocked-up ideal home as being SEE (Tom can enlighten us more on exactly what that is) and then we each bring our pick of choice components to the sandbox where we dump them out for everyone else to see. Then... piece by piece we begin to assemble (as if we were putting together a jigsaw puzzle) an ideal generic home that anyone of us would not at all mind living in. In fact, I will go so far as to say...anyone of us would really like to call this dwelling their home. And...I do believe that at the very least, this could be quite a learning experience for us all.
So, there you have it. Looking forward to seeing what you bring to dump out into this sandbox. In other words, if you were going to build your ideal home, describe what it would be (the more details the better) and...you don't have to do it all at once.
Any questions just ask.
