Housing is the number one cost of living, and part of OSE's goals are to reduce the Cost of Living. Homes are the largest single investment of a family, typically requiring the owners to go into debt. OSE is interested in reducing this burden with Incremental Housing, and a lower cost to begin with because of efficient, modular design.

OSE is developing a core enterprise model to cross-subsidize its activity, and the Seed Eco-Home has a large market share. Housing and real estate is an almost $4T global market and growing rapidly. [1]

By developing a robust revenue model around the House, OSE aims to eliminate revenue-generating considerations from detracting from its potential programs.
