Julia Dyche writes that the Flock House reminds her of “Childhood Structures I made of logs, bricks, etc. and the countless hours I spent revisiting the. Fantasizing, within them and spending time in them.”

To equip a Flock House, she suggests “Rain water collection, for one. Simple solar system, portable compost system – suspended perhaps, gardens-containers.” She notes that a vertical “structure for plants” means “minimal earth required.”

For materials, she suggests “all the garlic tops material from our recent garlic harvest – woven.”

Her contributions. “Artist – paint, some construction – help – creativity – 29 years art teacher. Husband would be terrific collaborator, creative plumber, gardener, ornithologist.”
