  1. A properly run and managed HOA can be a very good thing, and a poorly managed HOA can be a disaster. Many problems arise when homeowners stop attending HOA meetings. Often good people from neighborhood sit home and do nothing and sore losers get on board of directors and start terrorizing everyone.
  2. Earthquake-proof house

    Buildings in Chile better be made earthquake-proof. Could you please explain a little how this will be achieved in your construction.
  3. Off the grid greenhouse

    I have a question about the greenhouse. The way I understand you are building off the grid community. How will that work with a greenhouse? In your video, I can see that you will have solar panels on top of a greenhouse, but aquaponics requires lots of energy. I think that it will not be enough to run everything just on solar. Thanks in advance for your answer.
  4. What are the revenue streams on the farm?

    Tom, it seems that they are going to set up their own garbage service in the subdivision. Organic waste most likely will be used as a feed for chickens. And, here we go... less money spent for chicken feed; community makes money on trash, happy residents get their organic eggs, workers get paid.
  5. Garbage Service

    Sorting waste into different elements is an excellent idea. In self-sustainable subdivision like this one vast part of waste could be turned into valuable organic fertilizer. It could be used back on the property, improving the soil and increasing production of the farm.
  6. Inspired by ReGen Villages idea?

    Regen villages have a lovely idea in principle but wouldn't it be roasting in their houses in summer months? Might work only in cold climates.
