We're back from the TinyFest and the excitement is still moving through us from all the great people, creativity and interest in simple living we found there. Our experience is perfectly described by this Instagrammer we met who posted a pic of our mock-up display pieces showing a corner and interlocking post. Her words were echoed by many visitors to our booth.
"My favorite part of @tinyfest.events was this...of course triangles were involved! @geocombhomes created this genius way to make easy to assemble modular dome structures. Out of all the fancy tiny houses and van life examples to tour, this was most impressive to me. There were a few things I learned/observed yesterday: (1) tiny living is just arriving to the masses. (2) the interest in tiny living is about affordable housing and financial freedom to most. (3) although those are total bonuses to tiny living, little emphasis was put on sustainable lifestyles and reducing carbon footprint. (4) It would be so rad to work in tandem with festivals like this to educate and make it more about the necessity of minimalism to better the health of our planet. Some of the tiny homes were total tiny mansions. Less stuff frees us from the burden of figuring out where to put all of it. Food for Sunday thought..."
It is wonderful hearing so much feedback that GeoComb Homes is The Rapid Shelter System that works well for different kinds of people and many uses. It was important for us to find out that there is such strong interest in GeoComb Homes and Tiny Living, but also very helpful were the great connections we made with the Tiny House and Simple Living Community and vendors. We met with the makers of custom windows, kitchen and bathroom units, and a variety of indoor and outdoor appliances for solar use, water catchment and lots of the accessories that Early Bee pre-sale applicants have requested. It feels good to build the synergy of this community by forming the network for simple living.
Early Adopter Update
We'll be separating the ADU roll out from the unpermitted backyard components. There are many Early Adopters who need Certified products for permit applications, and others who are satisfied without that label. Therefore we will continue the longer and more costly development process of Certified "tagged" components while starting production of the "uncertified" but nearly identical options sooner. We will be processing the applications beginning this week in these in two parallel groups so that the process of getting State and Federal Certifications does not further delay the group who does not need it.
The minimum amount of Early Adopter Applicants to begin individual consultations and ordering has almost been reached. There's still time to plan a set of components for your Early Adopter Pre-Paid Discount. Fill out that form if you haven't already done so.
