We are deciding to do this but part of a bigger picture: a large coordinated hackathon beyond only the Kickstarter backers. We will package this in a different version, a 575 sf home that can be delivered on a trailer. This will combined the best features of Seed Eco-Home and an RV. How does that sound?

  • A $5k-$50k housing unit based on a trailer.
  • Telescopes out, for a comfortable starter home comparable to a trailer home but high quality, lifetime design, and full off-grid capable, with PV and incinerating toilet.
  • It's a transformer and industry transformer. It can take the shape of an RV-looking instance, or the shape of a regular house that can be deployed like a prefab house.
