Our Mission

 

Our mission is to provide a simple, fast, and affordable building method which anyone can use to create beautiful additional space now. Beyond that, our mission is to reduce waste and environmental harm caused by traditional building methods.

 

 

We want to make sustainable and affordable living faster and easier than ever before. We intend to offer a very different breakthrough alternative to provide housing and rapid shelter, eventually made from hemp products and other renewable carbon negative solutions. We've deisgned a system of snap together structures and components. It all starts here with our TinyComb Shed. Most important to us is cultivating an earth friendly and sustainable business model that networks with local businesses to supply homes designed to help regenerate the biosphere. Our intention is abundance and empowerment for the community and our Planet.

 

We have a vision of a world on the path to healing and regeneration.  A world where every person has access to a safe and dignified home.

 

Choosing to create an inspiring, low impact lifestyle can be simple. It can be fast. That is our Vision.

 

A smart future is ours to build.

James Spitzer CEO/COO Hello, I've enjoyed a long career in architectural design, drafting, and all phases of residential construction. I've seen how painful and expensive traditional building has become. My light bulb moment for GeoComb Homes concept came a few years back while I was thinking about a gazebo design. I went to sleep late one night after drawing. I bolted out of bed at 2:30 AM with the design breakthrough that made it all work at scale. I worked through the day finishing the sketches. I saw right away that the beauty and grace of the design would be in their simple versatility as much as their multifaceted honeycomb shape. Assemble them into countless beautiful architectural forms for a multitude of uses. It is a game changer in these times for us and the Earth. I'm glad to be able to put my skills into service for the future and housing transformation.

Becoming part of the Geocomb team changed my life by inspiring certainty that the power to collectively change course lies in our hands.  It is waiting for nothing but us to rise to the occasion.
