Open-Source Housing Designs

Anyone else interested in sharing Open-Source residential housing designs?

Hi All! I’m an expat forming a small community who is new to the IC space. Like many of us, I already have land. But that’s only one part of the framework when it comes to community building.

For those of us who are planning to design and build our housing and community structures, I’m thinking it would be great to share “open-source” ecologically friendly housing designs and stats with each other. I’ll share my designs once they’re completed as well.

In addition to open-source plans, in my research I came across a number of Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) designs that Counties and Cities have pre-approved for their specific region. Perhaps there may be some ideas and solutions here that might help those of us who are in the design stage get started.

If you have a design, photos, links, cost/sq. ft. breakdowns you’d like to share with others in our IC community who are also building, I’d love to hear from you.

Here are a view ADU designs that might be helpful to start the conversation.
All the best,
