(I'm one of the authors of the planbook) The only think I would add is that we now have *four* plans for common houses in the planbook which can be constructed using strawbale or superinsulated techniques. There is also a strategy for getting into a community which involves transitional housing. I can provide more details for anyone that is interested. Eric D.
