The Octagonal Living Unit Kit house prototype is done

Dear friends,

the Octagonal Living Unit 3.1
the Octagonal Living Unit 3.1

This is a note to all the great people who were willing to sponsor the kickstarter project to build a prototype of the OLU kit house three years ago.  I'm writing to let you know that the prototype for the kit house is now complete.  The design has been altered a little, a new roofline added, creating lots more headroom and floorspace in the loft. You can see lots more pictures at this link: www.sculptorhouse.com.  I will begin marketing the kit house in the new year. Stay tuned. Thanks again for your interest.

All the best,

Craig Pleasants

Developments with the Octagonal Living Unit

Dear friends and supporters of the Octagonal Living Unit,

There have been some developments on my kit-house project that I wanted to tell you about. First of all, I have secured funding that will allow me to purchase the steel and polystyrene panels for the house. This will mean I can build a prototype to find out just how easy it is and how quickly the house can be dried in. I hope to do that in the coming year. 

I have also gotten advice from a venture capital/philanthropy firm who says that I now need to test the product-market-fit. I am posting this update to begin that process. Some of you wanted to support the idea out of kindness, but others supported it because they were interested in the possibility of having one of these little octagonal gems. If you are still interested in the idea of an artist's studio, or a tiny house, or a guest house, please visit this web site: http://www.sculptorhouse.com/ and fill out the "contact us for more info" page. . . . And stay tuned.

Many thanks,

Craig
