On Making a Sustainable House

I’m dizzy and ditzy as a bee can be.
Yet to be a bee is not for me,
I am simply too busy to be a bee,

IN fACT….I would like to know where all those behive engineers and botanists are! Where are the gardeners, the tree surgeons, the cultivators and the rose grafters?  It is time to unite behind the latest and greatest sustainable home design in the history of –well, the World.--  WE ARE GOING TO GROW A HOUSE.

Why put up with all those joints and connections and what nots? Why not just manufacture a couple of seeds with a few house chromosomes? You know, a few plumbing stem cells, an electronic segment, a brick and mortar constructor? Sheet rock?

What is a house but a few organs and an inner and outer skin? Of course, there’s some insulation for fat, a couple of entrances and egresses to manage maintenance, processing and waste. We just need a nice drainage system and some plumbing for circulation to carry the oxygenated water around.

Can you experts not design a special cross-linked polyethylene heated water lymph system? A nervous system, cable and fiber ready?

After all, it’s a house, not a nuclear reactor! Squirrels do it, wasps do it, bears hibernate in it, and of course there are all those incredibly beautiful birds!
Well, you know what I mean.
