About Us

In 2006, Doug Sharp put together a team of architects within BSB Design with one goal: design a sturdy home, with lightweight materials, that would be easy to ship and could be built in one day by one family. All this for as little money as possible.

5 Abod Shelters Needed for Local School in Lusaka, Zambia

After discovering that many of the local children did not attend school because they could not afford to, 2 American teachers founded RHO Appleseed School in Lukasa, Zambia in November 2011. The school now serves 130 children (and growing), 5 days a week and provides 2 meals per day for the children. Homes are needed for the school director, teachers and children and families in crisis. The goal is to build the homes in a community setting in July 2015 on school grounds.
