Well this is unexpected. People are beginning to understand what it is I’m trying to say.
The goal is to eventually start a design-build entity with several other complimentary creators. Homes that gently integrate with the natural world and generate surplus clean water and power will need to be a cooperate work of art. Part of our purpose will be to perfect technology, not invent technology. Another part will be to design an experience for the client where they can get enrolled in the creation process and make it their own.
This will not be easy. Have I said that before? It’s hard enough to write these weekly posts let alone recruit a team, research technology, figure out how to collect water legally, and perhaps find a client or at least a prospect!
The idea is a bit complex to say the least, so I write about it.
What comes next?
As the story, the “why”, and the how become more clear, it’s time to think about what’s next. The two biggest constraints I see are: how/where to collect water legally and what technologies are currently available to make this a reality?
A quick search and I’ve found An Introduction to Oregon’s Water Laws. It’s only 52 pages long but for a weekend warrior, who also wants to do other things, it seems daunting. To pull this all together it will be a lot of work and I’m committed to doing it. It just might take a while.
Next week we can dive into water rights and how this idea might work for collecting water at the home. For now, that’s what’s next in a long string of steps to make this dream a reality. Thanks for coming on the journey.
