      This home concept is intended to replace the outdated design solutions at Habitat for Humanity International. Our goal was to propose a method to grow homes from native trees. This enables these new local dwellings to be a part of an absolutely green community.

      1. Composed with 100% living nutrients.
      2. Harmonize & embrace growth.
      3. Make effective contributions to the ecosystem.
      4. Accountable removal of human impacts.
      5. Involve arboreal farming & production.
      6. Subsume technology within terrestrial environs.
      7. Circulate water & metabolic flows symbiotically.
      8. Consider the life cycle, from use to disposal.
      9. Achieve a fitness with our earthen web of life.

      habitat for humanity is about homes now... not 20 yrs later when the trees have finally grown.

      We could plan ahead though, right?
