What is this project all about?
If few people consume most of our resources, poverty, wars and
refugees will emerge elsewhere as a result of this injustice.
In Germany our current lifestyle is consuming four to six times of what we would be entitled to in a world of fair distribution.
This is unjust and inappropriate for the world, it is simply unethical.
We are deeply convinced that even with a very low consumption of resources and energy it is possible to live a good and comfortable life. For this purpose we have developed a small DIY home. (… a small house which you can build yourself (without professional help))!
What is the project goal and who is the project for?
We would like to offer an affordable ready-made construction kit for a complete small and cozy home, a home built with sustainable and sound building materials, a home which generates its own energy and which allows which makes it possible to enjoy an ethical lifestyle
The following points help us to reach this aim:
We use sustainable local building materials.
We cooperate with a carpentry which prefabricates all wooden parts precisely fitting.
A fotovoltaic system combined with a battery storage device provides the energy we need for our economical DC (direct current) technology.
We collect and use rainwater which can be re-used with the help of plants and modern technology.
Food can be produced in the attached greenhouse.
A projekt for everybody…
who is longing for a good and simple life,
who wants to enjoy life without harming others.
And for refugees who would like to build by their own hands a home worth living.
Why would you support this project?
to come closer to a more liveable housing situation for
to create affordable living space for a good life for all,
to offer an attractive option for the accommodation of refugees,
in brief: to make life more liveable.
How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded?
All the money will be spent on building the first fully functioning prototype interested people can live in for a test. We hope that this can tempt/encourage as many people as possible to live a life which is just and suitable for our world.
Who are the people behind the project?
After studying art I was engaged in organic farming and the marketing of organic food. Additionally I trained as a building biologist and set up a company for renewable energies where I was in charge of the research and development department for several years.
Now I would like to contribute the wide and various experiences which I have gained to the new ownhome project in order to realize our dream of building a home for an ethical lifestyle together with friends and their skills.
