DESIGN YOUR SELF HEATING SOLAR PASSIVE ECO HOME FOR YOUR UNIQUE CLIMATE

Please join me in my new guided online training program where I will take you through you all the steps of designing your very own eco shelter on a shoe-string budget.

As some of you may know, I have put my life towards developing a Living Bio Shelter Organism that houses the inhabitants in a nature inspired eco home. If you don't know me and what I stand for then scroll through 300+ videos on my 6 year old YouTube channel.  To understand my design ethics please explore my inventions and watch some  testimonials from other students

 

In my new 12 week training, you'll receive 2X pre-recorded tutorials every week and each Saturdays, for the duration of entire course, we'll do a ZOOM live support session to get you through anything that you might be stuck (based on the tutorials received from that particular week.)

 

You will learn how to conceptualise, design and draw you own home on paper and then model it a super fun and intuitive curvilinear based 3D software. I will gift you a free version of Rhino 3D.

 

our bio-tecture drawing class is made up of 3 parts: 

 

  • theory on principles of biological eco home design 

  • drawing a home on graph paper (the same one as in the picture above) 

  • modelling the same home we drew on paper in 3D software 

 

We will kick off with paperwork using basic tools such as a compass and a ruler and then, as a group, we will take my latest (2022) Earthship-inspired Wautillarium for cold climate drawing into Rhino 3D software. Yes, you will draw this same design with me as I guide you along every step of the way. 

 

The course will be interwoven with short video snippets from my previous live builds, as I explain hands-on conclusions and construction methodologies to get our homes from paper > to > 3D software  >  to physical reality. My main aim is for you to be able to build your creations and live in them or rent them out for additional income.

In the 2D part I've placed the camera right over my desk so you will see my hands and full-scale drawing, as you follow along. I will share my screen whenever we are doing Rhino 3D work so you can see exactly what to do and why. If you fall behind you can always go back to tutorials and watch them again. They will be available to you indefinitely into the future and all the lessons are downloadable.

At our course, we will take a close look at the blueprints for the Moon Cocoon from CalEarth as well as the Simple Survival Model from Earthship Biotecture. This lesson will provide you with necessary details that are required on our set of drawings in order to be approved by a structural engineer and this receive a  "Certification of Occupancy" stamp.

What makes my design methodology and teaching methods unique is that you will learn how to design buildings that can be practically constructed with a minimal amount of materials (due to catenary domes and vaults)

Being able to visualize your home on paper and then in 3D is the first big step towards realizing your construction into reality.

To support you, I have created a live telegram group for the duration of our training, and beyond,  where you will be able to ask questions and interact with other students.

The aim of this course is for you to be able have crystal clarity when you get to site, whether you are building DIY style or managing a team of contractors.

Below are some of the detailed pre-recorded lessons that you will receive for the duration of 10 weeks

  • conceptualize your home based on your climate, budget, needs, and level of skills

  • draw your concepts on paper, top view (plan), side view (section), elevation

  • take your sketches from paper and model them in

  • add details to your drawings that are necessary to meet the code

  • what it takes (liquid waste, structural integrity permit etc)  to get our homes approved

  • detailed study of a professional blueprint from CalEarth as well as Earthship Biotecture.

FAQ

Q: Rhino 3D costs  1000 USD do you have a way around that?

A: Yes I do, I will provide a version for you that you can use for Mac and PC

Q: When can I have access to the course? When does it start? 

A: We will start around on Saturday 25th of June at 20:00 Moscow time. It is a guided live training that that is supported by prerecorded and well edited tutorials

 

Q: Do we have a monthly payment plan?

A: you can pay in 2 payments. One before we start (100 USD) and the other payment 4 weeks into the course.

Q: I am worried that with my schedule and different time zones I will not be able to attend live sessions.  

A: Live Q&A presentations will be recorded and a video link will be sent out immediately. The session is planned for Saturday's at 10:00 AM PDT time. I will provide additional support sessions for students from Australian time zone

Q: Is this course just about 3D drawing, what if I am not computer savvy?

A: Our guided course will include quite a bit of time designing on paper with a compass pencil and a ruler. Rhino 3D is very intuitive, and with practice, you will become better and better. I will teach you all the tools I use in Rhino 3D to design our eco homes.

 

Q: If I can't or don't want to draw in 3D can I still build my home. 

A: Of course, you can. If you can draw a scale sketch of your home as seen from the top, side, and a few slices through it, you will be able to build your own home. This is exactly what we will cove at our training 

Q: If I can't get through all the material by the end of 10 weeks, will I have access to the videos?

A: Yes our tutorials will be available for at least another year and all the lessons are downloadable
