Global Village Construction Set

Using modern technological knowledge and methods, and very little cash, the Tiny Farm Blog are designing and building a set of machines and methods that are open source (plans are free for all), low cost, easy to replicate, highly efficient, simple to maintain, and sustainable to operate. They call is the Global Village Construction Set which has just about everything you would need to build a community, from the house you live in to the food you eat, from scratch. I like how they describe it as a "Lego set".

Or as their blog puts it: “We are farmer scientists – working to develop a world class research center for decentralization technologies using open source permaculture and technology to work together for providing basic needs and self replicating the entire operation at the cost of scrap metal.” Check it out:
