Principles:
This home concept is intended to replace the outdated design solutions at Habitat for Humanity. We propose a method to grow homes from native trees. A living structure is grafted into shape with prefabricated Computer Numeric Controlled (CNC) reusable scaffolds. Therefore, we enable dwellings to be fully integrated into an ecological community.

1. Composed with 100% living nutrients.
2. Make effective contributions to the ecosystem.
3. Accountable removal of human impacts.
4. Involve arboreal farming & production.
5. Subsume technology within terrestrial environs.
6. Circulate water & metabolic flows symbiotically.
7. Consider the life cycle, from use to disposal.
