Update Jan 2017
A big focus this year will be on building Emerald Village. We received land use approvals for the 22-unit affordable tiny home community this past October. Site construction is scheduled to begin in March. Once the infrastructure is set and the foundations are poured, we have 13 different design-build teams ready to erect a tiny house. In addition to that, SquareOne will be organizing skilled volunteers to assist in the construction of 8 more tiny houses using structural insulated panels (SIPs). If you have building experience and would like to help out, please email John Cox and we'll add you to our list to contact when we are ready to begin. There will be a call for more volunteer opportunities later in the year. The first 18 households have been selected through an application and interview process, and we've begun hosting monthly village meetings to begin building community prior to move-in. We're still accepting applications. A few of the larger designs remain to be filled, so we are especially seeking couples or small families for those. So EVE will need some volunteers to assist probably sometime in April-May. These unskilled will assist the “skilled volunteers.” I have worked with some of the skilled volunteers.They are skilled!
