Editor’s Comment: The greatest fruits of the age of the Internet have been the renaissance of alternative living, which are going to be a big part of the future. Like so many other institutions in our society, the idea of buying and cookie cutter house and being in debt with a mortgage to pay – indefinitely until you die – is out dated, and does nothing to promote freedom for the people living in it.

For those that want to, or need to, you can now download plans and build your own home – meeting codes if necessary – from cheap or repurposed materials. For preppers, it could prove to be the perfect solution for your survival and off-grid needs. Many of these homes are more efficient, cheap to buy and maintain, and typically don’t come tied to long term debt. Is it too much to hope for an open source solution to everything in our lives.

How to Download and Build Your Own House

by James Corbett

You wouldn’t download a house, would you? Of course you would! And now with the Open Building Institute, you can! Join us today as we talk to Marcin Jakubowski of Open Source Ecology and Catarina Mota of the Open Building Institute about how they are bringing their vision of an affordable, open source, modular, ecological building toolkit to life. We discuss the free, open source library of modules that form the basis of the building’s design, how the institute will train others to start designing and building their own homes, and how you can find out more information and help the collaborative effort.
