A Homebuilding Revolution

Geoship is introducing the bioceramic geodesic dome to the world. Our technology merges the work of two of history’s greatest inventors — the Geodesic Geometry of Buckminster Fuller and the Ceramic Crystal Chemistry of Rustum Roy.


Fuller predicted it would be 50-100 years before the material science would catch up to his new geometry. Right on cue, in 2004, the general theory and compositions of a Roy’s ceramic crystal chemistry was announced to the world. Geoship combines the geometry and materials that maximize efficiency. Will bioceramic domes replace wood boxes as the 'bread and butter' of 21st century home building?

“My brother and I started building a home for our family. We did the work ourselves, on a shoestring budget, with reclaimed materials and lumber we milled on the land. Then we started questioning — with all of our technology — WHY are we still building with sticks and nails? How does nature build protective shells? Why does it feel so good to step outside the boxes we live in? We started engineering a new kind of home.


Our founding team has decades of experience in human-centered design, CNC mold making, and green ceramic manufacturing. Some of the top architects and material scientists in the world have joined our advisory board.


We’re building the next great American home. We need more than new technologies to protect the planet, we need to create a new paradigm of living in community in harmony with the land."


~ Morgan Bierschenk Geoship Co-Founder and CEO

Geoship Raises The Bar*

All-Ceramic Composites 

Bioceramic domes bypass all conventional building materials. The framing, insulation, and panels are 100% bioceramic composite materials. We entrain the ceramic with air to make insulation. We combine the ceramic with basalt and hemp fiber to form the panels and framing.

 

Affordable

We estimate go-to-market turnkey prices to be $45K to $230K (depending on size). This price estimate includes everything: delivery, permitting, installation, mechanical systems, interior finishings, appliances, and even electrochromic glass for privacy and passive solar heating/cooling. Bioceramic domes are a mass production technology that enables the leap onto a new affordability curve. 

 

Resilient

Ceramic composites are fireproof to 2,300F. They provide no food for mold or insects. The dome structure distributes stresses and strains perfectly, making it the most earthquake proof and hurricane proof structure known to man. Bioceramic domes are engineered to last for over 500 years. There is nothing to rot, rust, or deteriorate. They can be repaired and resurfaced with the same ceramic material.

 

Zero-Carbon

The precast ceramic panels could actually sequester more CO2 than was released in their production. The raw minerals can be harvested from seawater desalination plants, sewage treatment plants, and other non-toxic waste stream sources. Old bioceramic panels can be recycled into new bioceramic panels, or pulverized and used as fertilizer. 

 

Nature Technology

The chemical composition of Geoship bioceramic is similar to bone and shells. The same material is now revolutionizing the orthopedic industry as a fast-cure bioactive bone cement. Ancient civilizations used similar ceramic materials to build sacred temple complexes like the great pyramids of Giza


Health Optimizing

Bioceramic domes mimic the natural light, water, and electromagnetic environment. The design uses earthing floors, natural spectrum light, and vortex water to restore the conditions that humans evolved with on Earth. The high dielectric ceramics and fractal geometry function like a stone circle or a pyramid. Bioceramics reflect >80% of radiant heat and emit high far-infrared light. Professional athletes are now using bioceramic powders in clothing because the far-infrared light catalyzes the body's natural healing process.


*The statements above represent our goals and what we believe to be true. Bioceramic domes are in development. 

Geoship is launching a cooperative program with City Repair Project, Zappos, and Buckminster Fuller Institute to transcend homelessness across the USA.

The problem


Conventional housing is unaffordable, unsustainable, and unhealthy.

Unaffordable

Average Americans can no longer afford a home in 74% of the housing markets. According to a 2016 McKinsey reportCalifornia alone needs 3.5 million housing units by 2025 (more than three times the current pace) to regain any semblance of affordability. The theoretical cost is outlandish ($1.6 trillion).


Unsustainable and Unsafe

Building construction and operation accounts for 40% of global CO2 emissions. Construction projects generate up to 40% of the landfill waste in the US. In 2017, the US was impacted by 16 separate disaster events, totaling over $300b in damage. After a record breaking year for extreme weather events, resiliency is becoming the new sustainability.  The October 2017 California fires damaged or destroyed over 15,000 homes and took 44 lives. A month earlier Hurricane Harvey in Florida damaged or destroyed over 200,000 homes and took 88 lives. (source of disaster statistics - climate.gov)


Unhealthy

Nearly half of all Americans suffer from at least one chronic disease. The Toxic Substances Control Act was enacted by the EPA in 1976, but it's updated so rarely that experts refer to it as "The 40 Year Old Virgin". Is this rise in chronic disease related to the buildings we live in — the potentially toxic chemicals, mold growth, poor ventilation, artificial light, electromagnetic radiation, contaminated water, and disconnection from the Earth?


Disconnected

The former US Surgeon General has declared loneliness (weak social connections) as the fastest-growing public health crisis, roughly the same impact as smoking 15 cigarettes a day. Is the way we design our homes and communities contributing to loneliness? Zoning that's limited to detached single family housing is practically gospel in America, but officials across the nation are starting to make seemingly heretical moves. In June 2019 the Oregon legislature passed a law that essentially bans single family zoning in most of the state. California lawmakers have drafted a similar bill.


Mark Lakeman, a national leader in the development of sustainable public places tells a story about the Roman Grid"Our gridded street pattern, a result of the grid laid out by the US Congress in the Land Ordinance of 1785, was developed by the Roman army as a means to control a conquered territory. This imposed pattern has suppressed our natural impulse to gather with our community."

OUR SOLUTION


Geoship transforms homebuilding with new materials and regenerative architecture.

We design and mass-produce life-enhancing homes. Our solution uniquely addresses multiple crises; affordable housing, homelessness, climate change, chronic disease, and loneliness. 

Bioceramic Architecture

We produce bioceramic panels rapidly with high quality and low cost. The structures are designed to deliver on ALL of the top 17 sustainable home trends of 2018, while also being fireproof, 100% non-toxic, potentially carbon-negative, assembled on site in a matter of days, optimized for health, and able to last for over 500 years. Geoship addresses ALL the shortfalls of housing with zero-carbon bioceramic composites.

Bioceramic Materials

Bioceramic (An Inorganic Polymer) enables never-before-possible applications across the built environment. This new family of materials are highly crystalline, flash cure at room-temperature, and form strong molecular bonds with metal, wood, and concrete. Unlike Portland cement, bioceramic composites could last for 1000’s of years and potentially sequester more CO2 than was emitted in their production. The raw minerals can be reclaimed from seawater desalination plants, wastewater treatment plants, and many other non-toxic waste stream sources (source of all material stats). Bioceramic panels can be recycled into new bioceramic panels or used as an awesome fertilizer.

Regenerative Communities

Today, developers build neighborhoods, and sell homes to whoever can pay the highest price. Geoship turns the tables and puts the customer in charge. We provide tools for customers to network into communities and democratize the design build process. Imagine designing a geodesic village with your friends, then building it together. (And throwing one of the best parties ever!) This is the future of regenerative community architecture.

We're starting with three different sized domes that all connect to one another. Geoship will evolve beyond domes into a wide variety of beautiful and efficient geometric forms.

The Market


Bridging the gap between affordable housing, green building, and wellness.

Even the $24T global construction market will be "disrupted". Seven of the top ten fastest-growing industries in the US are related to construction. Yet construction companies traditionally invest less than 1% of revenue in new technologies — lower than every other major industry. Geoship is poised to reshape construction with a new material science, new production technologies, and a never-before-possible combination of affordability, sustainability, and wellness.

First we're launching in creative cities and towns where Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) construction is surging. In 2017 CA state legislators passed a law that made ADUs legal in all California cities. Two years later building permits for ADUs in Los Angeles county comprised a whopping one fifth of permits issued for all homes. These backyard cottages are a game-changer for homeowners and an important piece of the affordable housing solution. The most popular rental OF ALL TIME on Airbnb is a tiny geodesic dome in the woods.

The experience of staying in a Geoship ADU is the first step toward living with your friends and family in community. Key messages from the 2013 U.N. report indicate to us the urgent need for hyper-local, self-reliant villages to prepare for the additional 2 billion people who will be joining our planet by 2050. The global residential construction market is growing at an annual rate of 10.3% and is expected to exceed $7.3T by 2024. Our market is Cultural Creatives (a very fast growing customer segment that is currently around 37% of Americans) who live in suburban or rural areas (about 72% of Americans). Cultural creatives around the world are looking for new ways of living in community in harmony with nature.

The global green building materials market is growing at an annual rate of 11.7% and is expected to exceed $432B by 2024. Geoship is first targeting the US west coast, which our research indicates is 4.3% of the global market. The green building industry has a critical need for resilient and low carbon materials. Bioceramic composites deliver for a wide variety of applications from fireproofing, to roof replacement, insulation, 4x8 boards, structural beams, concrete resurfacing, 3D printing, and advanced hydroponic systems. 

Our Traction


We’ve proven the new market and validated the new technology.  

Corporate Sponsorship - Homes For The Domeless

In early 2019 Zappos invested in Geoship, as a community partner, to demonstrate a scalable business model for transcending homelessness. In November 2019 Clark County (Las Vegas) made a Request For Proposals for solutions to the homeless crisis. We submitted our proposal to Clark County for multi-year grant funding. 


Our strategy combines Geoship regenerative architecture, with City Repair's transitional village building template, and Zappos new work paradigm. We build transitional villages that embody powerful urban design principles — to strengthen the original agreements humans formed in the villages where we first came together — cooperation, community, and creativity.


Our approach is unlike any other in that growth is fueled by revenue, rather than by donations, making it highly scalable. To learn more about our Homes For The Domeless program, read this summary, which links to the full proposal we made to Clark County.

Press Coverage and Enthusiastic Customers

Our first press mention was in Fast Company in August 2019. We had 8,900 new website visitors and 2,100 sign ups for an impressive 24% signup conversion rate and a $320M projected sales funnel — in our first month!  This projected sales funnel is based on an average estimated turnkey price of $153,000 multiplied by 2,100 signups. These signups were to "Begin the Journey". They are not reservations and were non-deposit.

Prototypes and Paid Reservations

Developing a new world-changing technology market takes time. We built our first full size engineering prototype in 2015. It’s what the auto industry would call a “development mule” to test various aspects of the product. Rather than compromising our social purpose for traditional Venture Capital, we bootstrapped. In 2016/2017 we developed the material science and our proprietary manufacturing equipment. We completed most of the CAD work for the 16’ dome in 2018, and prototyped several different mold designs. We have $2.5M in reservations with deposits, but do not plan to open reservations again until beginning pilot production.

Letter Of Intent - First Regenerative Village

We have a letter of intent from a community in Nevada City, CA. The community has 150 acres of land that’s entitled for up to 60 bioceramic homes. The goal of the project is to demonstrate living in harmony with a fire ecology in a 500-year ceramic village. Fireproof bioceramic domes could be the new go-to housing for rural California.

What We Do


Geoship is a vertically integrated home and village building platform.

Our proprietary technology finally enables mass production of affordable regenerative homes.  We transform raw minerals and hemp fiber mats into finished structures. Our panels are packed into a shipping container and easily assembled on-site by Geoship certified contractors or owner-builders. By sourcing raw minerals, precasting all-ceramic panels, and constructing finished homes, our approach reduces the costs and inefficiencies that have plagued the home building industry. In addition to building homes, we supply ceramic materials for a wide variety of applications across the built environment. 

The Business Model


We design and produce affordable regenerative homes without ecological offense or the disadvantage of anyone. 

Architecture Business Model

Geoship provides software tools so customers can network into communities and democratize the design build process. This approach fills our sales pipeline with highly motivated and inspired customer communities (potentially many years in advance). Customer engagement begins with a learning journey. It continues into a dome and village configurator to hone the vision and generate shareable media. The buying process begins with a refundable reservation deposit, followed by two down payments for design then production, and final payment upon shipping. Site work, installations, and finishings are additional revenue sources.

The direct material cost of a medium geodesic is approx $9,870 (less with scale). We estimate the direct labor to be approx $6,561 (less with automation). We’re targeting a base price of $99k to $129k, yielding a very high gross margin of around 81%. Delivery, installation, interior finishing and mechanical systems are additional costs. We plan to build an entire product ecosystem around the ceramic domes.


How are these very high margins possible? Because our technology bypasses all of the existing product and material supply chains. Roofing, tar paper, trusses, insulation, lumber, steel, concrete, adhesives, particle board, drywall, paint, siding, and vapor barrier products are all replaced with bioceramic composites.


Materials Business Model

Geoship is partnering with values-aligned organizations to develop new material applications for the building industry. Initially we source raw minerals from the commodities market and outsource the blending and bagging. We plan to sell bags and containers of ceramic materials directly to commercial customers and through retail stores like Home Depot. Geoship will continue vertically integrating into green mining, waste stream reclamation, and ceramic recycling — a cradle to cradle operation.

How We Are Different


Geoship’s technology and cooperative business model positions the company as a leader and creates a moat against competition.

First Mover Advantage

Geoship is the first mover with bioceramic architecture technology. The company establishes itself as a purpose-driven thought leader and catalyzes the evolution of the homebuilding industry. But Geoship is not absolutely the first mover, there is one small company - ACI Precast - that has been building code-approved ceramic precast structures for over 5 years. ACI's technology is the new ceramic material science but based on older steelcrete technology invented by Tony Ruiz over 35 years ago. Geoship partner Joe Lacy pioneered the steelcrete technology with Tony and recently inherited the IP.


Proprietary Technology

Geoship has strong intellectual property. The company anticipates filing hundreds of patents in the next few years. Proprietary technology includes ceramic material compositions and methods of preparation, mold and tooling technologies, green ceramic manufacturing equipment, and product design features.


Strong Brand and Partnerships

Geoship’s thought leadership, revolutionary product, vision, values, and cooperative model add up to an inspiring and powerful 21st-century brand


Cooperative Model

When Geoship transitions fully into a Multi-Stakeholder Cooperative, ownership benefits will be distributed to people and planet stakeholders (while protecting investor interests), and a purpose-driven trust will be established. We would like to call this a Profit-For-All Cooperative model, which 1) addresses the externalities of resource extraction 2) serves as a strategic advantage in sales 3) creates a barrier to entry for competitors 4) is a fundamental way we operate integrally with our purpose

The Vision


Transforming the future of home.

Geoship enters the market as a visionary community building brand. We partner with corporations and cities to transcend homelessness — generating awareness for our evolutionary technology and business model. Geoship serves ecologically and spiritually focused customers who envision a world that works for 100% of humanity. Our ultimate market is affordable regenerative homes in next generation communities around the world.

Our Team


A passionate and talented team on a life mission.

Our team has deep experience in green ceramic manufacturing, human-centered product design, CNC mold making, architecture, social entrepreneurship and more. We are dedicated to a revolution in affordable regenerative village architecture—to reconnect human communities and the natural world.

Why Invest 


It’s time to build the more beautiful world our hearts know is possible.

Geoship has NOT YET delivered any product to customers. By coming on board now, you help us make everything possible. We’ve bootstrapped the company for the past five years to minimize your risk. With a major technology corporation on board, multiple panel prototypes, a projected sales pipeline, and a world-class team, we’re now looking to crowdfund from a group of purpose-aligned investors. 


With your help, we can finish product development, begin pilot production, and reach profitability in 6-12 months.


Geoship is addressing the crises of affordable housing, homelessness, and climate change. Once we’re in pilot production, growth funding could come from government grants, low interest corporate loans, construction loans, and other incentives. Invest while you can, on the ground floor of a high growth technology company. Together we can transform the future of home, and build a company that’s owned by the people, in service to the Earth.

“After the HEYOKA ceremony, I came to live where I am now between Wounded Knee Creek and Grass Creek. Others came too, and we made these little houses of logs that you see, and they are square. It is a bad way to live, for there can be no power in a square...


The Power of the World always works in circles, and everything tries to be round. In the old days when we were a strong and happy people, all our power came to us from the sacred hoop of the nation, and so long as the hoop was unbroken, the people flourished...


Our teepees were round like the nests of the birds, and these were always set in a circle, the nation's hoop, a nest of many nests, where the Great Spirit meant for us to hatch our children...


But the Wasichus (whitemen) have put us in these square boxes. Our power is gone and we are dying, for the power is not in us any more....We are prisoners of war while we are waiting here. But there is another world.”

A New Beginning...

4 months ago


Geoship Villagers,


Thank you for propelling us beyond $500,000! We’ve raised almost $80,000 in just the last week. The momentum is building! 


Through Feb, March, and April our website averaged only 100 new visitors per day. In the last three weeks, we’ve averaged closer to 2,000 new visitors per day. There are 45 days left in the campaign, and at this pace we will reach our goal. 


A truly amazing community of humans are joining our MISSION TO BUILD the future of home. We look forward to the opportunity to meet one another, in domes, without masks!


Thanks to your help, we’ve begun leasing a new industrial space and purchasing capital equipment to begin pilot production. More exciting updates around this coming soon!

PS - And please keep sharing the love! When you tell your friends about Geoship you are bringing the geodesic world into form.



“Think of it. We are blessed with technology that would be indescribable to our forefathers. We have the wherewithal, the know-it-all to feed everybody, clothe everybody, and give every human on Earth a chance.

We know now what we could never have known before — that we now have the option for all humanity to make it successfully on this planet in this lifetime. Whether it is to be Utopia or Oblivion will be a touch-and-go relay race right up to the final moment.”

Origins of Geodesic Geometry

5 months ago

DID YOU KNOW?


The geodesic is the container of all life. 


In Plato's Timaeus, he describes an ideal etheric body — composed of 120 identical right triangles — that organizes all matter, "above and below." A vibrating, invisible, feminine "container for becoming". “A single living creature that contains all living creatures within it” — “Gaia”. 

Plato anticipated the synergetic math of Buckminster Fuller by nearly 2500 years. The rivers of magnetism that encircle the earth form a geodesic sphere. The geodesic encloses each of the five Platonic solids such that their corners fall only on its "corners."  Plato described it as the “World Soul” — birthing the five dynamic elements of creation — Fire, Earth, Air, Water and Aether.  Each element is a geo­metric shape, a color, and a place in the order of creation.

“Geometry will draw the soul towards truth and create the spirit of philosophy." ― Plato

These Carbon-Neutral Bioceramic Geodesic Dome Homes Last 500 Years And Don’t Rot, Burn, Or Rust

"California-based Geoship has raised almost $400,000 from 583 investors in a crowdfunding campaign to create a new kind of housing: affordable, resilient, modular, green, and long-lasting. The inspiration is from Buckminster Fuller, architect and futurist who popularized the geodesic dome.

The invention enabling it?

Bioceramic, the same material used to coat hip and knee joint replacements and found in NFL quarterback Tom Brady’s TB12 recovery sleepwear clothing."

>>> Engaging Warp Drive >>>

6 months ago


The old world is slowing down, but Geoship is engaging warp drive. We’re hiring more people, assembling capital equipment for our new manufacturing facility, acquiring land for growth, cementing partnerships with major village customers, and beginning to engage the national conversation around a new future of home.

More than ever the world is becoming aware of the urgent need for resilient and regenerative local communities - and we're ready.

Not only are we engaging warp drive as a company, our technology is also emblematic of a new paradigm in unified physics — where high dielectric materials and fractal geometry come together to resonate with life.

We are on the cutting edge of a new purpose for architecture, where you tell how well an architect did by putting a plant in a room and measuring how well it grows.

Thank you so much to all those who have already invested - you've made this possible!

In Wellness,

The Geoship Crew

Global Pandemic <> Thriving Beyond Imagined 🌐

6 months ago


As you are well aware, the global coronavirus pandemic is having unexpected effects on all of our families, our communities, and our way of life. First, our hearts go out to all those who are impacted — with loving kindness and compassion. While the pandemic is disrupting our normal lives, it also presents a chance to pause and reflect on the community-based future we wish to create.

 

While we are all being asked to remain home and limit our time out in the world, it’s an opportunity to help one another. The “self-distancing” is ironically bringing people together with spontaneous enthusiasm. Whether it’s helping our elderly neighbors with grocery runs, or just being present and listening to the wisdom of the ages. The pandemic is bringing communities together. Local organizations are canceling events, not because they’re being ordered to, but because they care for others and are accepting responsibility. As the public schools shut down and parents are working from home, we have time to strengthen the primary relationships that matter most.    

 

This unprecedented event is actually catalyzing our vision of the future. One that values being and presence at least as much as doing. One that accepts responsibility for our own healing above and beyond the support offered by medical institutions. One that builds dynamic and resilient community relationships, while the centralized systems disintegrate.

 

The Geoship vision is one of connection — to ourselves, our communities, and the Earth we hold sacred. While the coronavirus challenges the old world, we’re doubling down on the future by investing deeply in the places that bring us the greatest returns — our own homes and communities.

 

Your support has enabled us to lease a new manufacturing facility, and start purchasing the equipment and materials we need to begin pilot production. We will start making more weekly updates and creating some video content to chronicle our journey together to the future of home.

 

With care and gratitude,

 

The Geoship Crew

Share The Love ~ Sustained Organic Growth

7 months ago

Dear Geoship Investor Community,


It's an honor to have every one of you 444 dome lovers on our cap table! Thank you so much for getting us over the hump. 


We're building an exquisite product and a spontaneously enthusiastic community of customers and investors — positioning Geoship for sustained organic growth. Our attention is on the infinite game and establishing a true 21st century company. 


Since the initial success of this campaign, we've been able to focus our energy onto the dome build. Soon we are moving into an ideal manufacturing space, with over 100 acres of beautiful land for Geoship to grow. We've also formed a new partnership with an exciting customer who is planning to pre-purchase $1.5M in domes — for an educational center to expand human consciousness. This land and extra capital could truly accelerate our progress!


There are now only 9 days left in this offering. Thus far we have not advertised or paid for endorsements. We'd like to keep it this way. Our success comes through you. 


Feel free to use the image below and share the love with your friends. Invite them to invest while they can because an architectural renaissance is coming...


Here's to a thriving geodesic world,


The Geoship Crew

Increasing Raise to $1,069,396.02

8 months ago

A big thank you and so much gratitude to all our 360 investors so far, you are leading the way with an average investment of $630! We're extending this fundraise to $1.07M to make it available to more people. Our campaign went dormant for the last 2-3 weeks while we completed the required CPA review and expanded our team. This week we re-launched and are already over $225K!

According to a
2019 report from the Federal Reserve, over the last 30 years the top 1% have seen a $21T increase in their wealth, while the bottom 50% of America has seen a $900B decline in their wealth. Wealth originates through new businesses. We envision a world where early stage investment is open to everyone and ownership is shared with customers and the Earth. 


Together we can transform capitalism by positively "disrupting" one of the biggest and most polluting industries on Earth — through equity-based community funding, multi-stakeholder ownership, and a revolution in homebuilding. 


Here's to a more equitable geodesic world,
