What Is The Oasis Hybrid Home?
Video - Part 4

Dear Subscribers,

    Here we come to the most unique feature of the Oasis design: the fresh and grey water technology. This is more important than any other feature one could have in a house, because it concerns water, which after air is the most important human need. Not to diminish the importance of electricity and heat, but water is number one!

     Besides that, having spent the second winter in the Oasis leaves me awestruck with the winter time, anti-cabin fever ambiance! Always bringing light and plant benefits into the living room. And then, when I see my children plucking fresh cherry tomatoes and devouring them like candies, I know: this is well worth it!

     This passive solar room:

  • Generates heat
  • Recycles grey water to crystal clarity for toilet flushing
  • Creates healthy human and plant environmental symbioses in the main living area
  • Abundant day light to counteract cabin fever. (We bring some nature into our house)
  • Grows tomatoes or any green leaf veggies throughout the winter. (We gave our neighbors baskets of tomatoes for a New Year's gift.)
  • A wild turtle has its permanent residence under the foliage
  • All women, children, most dogs and some men will head directly to the atrium after entering the house!

     Anyway, it's just the greatest thing!

     Please enjoy another look into the bowels of the Oasis!

Sincere greetings,

P. S. Here is Part 4 of the informal video presentation:

Oasis Hybrid Home Is For Sale

       The first and famous Oasis Hybrid Home, which has drawn a widespread attention through newspaper and magazine articles as well as TV broadcastings, is now for sale. The architect and builder of that first Oasis Hybrid Home, Pouwel Gelderloos has personally, with his family, worked and lived in the home for two years. All systems have proven to be performing reliably and superbly.

       Because of its new and revolutionary design, Pouwel is giving a five year warranty period on the house. (That is five times the norm in the industry!!!) Additionally, the new owners of the house will have hot line access to Pouwel's resourceful brain for consultation and education over the same period of five years. All systems in the house have detailed drawings on how they are put together and also come with operation/maintenance manuals.

        The sale of this home will facilitate the building of a second one and clean up our atmosphere, 1,300 tons of carbon emission if the house survived for 100 years. (The average American household creates 13 tons of carbon emission a year to heat and light the home.)
