Testing phase begins
The prototype MICRO-CLASSIC is complete and in service. We are receiving terrific feedback and public response.
A number of testing data-points are being gathered and the results will be used for fine tuning the design and operation of
this state of the art home. The restored "GLENWOOD" combination stove has already provided a number of meals,
some late spring heat and a number of fine contributions to our operating manual. Stay tuned for ongoing photos

Outdoors is for living too !
4:50 pm est
In America there exists the tradition of Thoreau's Walden, the tiny cottage in the wilderness where natural surroundings
become part of the living space. It is now 12 years since presenting a paper to the Hearth Products Association on "Outdoor
Living Spaces ~ Remodeling your Abode" yet the concept holds more firepower today than ever. The earth and environment
need to be embraced as part of a home, a well rounded life, and a sanctuary of personal freedom. The earth bermed designs
we embrace fully capture the warmth of the soil, the composure of a well landscaped site, and the hearty fulfillment
of moving closer to nature. Think not of compacting your possessions, but of possessing all that surrounds you in living
smaller in an American Micro Homes building.
