WikiHouse is being developed collaboratively by a growing community of individuals and teams around the world. There are number of ways you can get involved.
1. As an individual or team.
Anyone can access, download and use WikiHouse files for commercial or non-commercial uses according to the Creative Commons licence and the WikiHouse terms and conditions. However, you may not describe yourself or your product as WikiHouse or use the WikiHouse logo. Please feel free to use the community forum to ask questions or connect with other members of the community. You can also access the WikiHouse commons, access current project folders or start your own project folder.
2. Join or start a chapter.
Chapters are open, self-organising groups consisting of individuals and businesses, and may organise events, prototypes and meetups, but they are not trading entities. Any two people may start a chapter by signing the WikiHouse Trademark Chapter Licence in the Constitution. Generally, chapters are named after a geographical location, but they can also be formed around particular themes.
3. Become a WikiHouse provider (coming soon)
The next step is for individuals or groups operating commercially – such as designers, manufacturers or certifiers – to become certified WikiHouse providers. Individuals or companies who sell their services through the WikiHouse platform will share a percentage of their income back to support the Foundation. If you’re interested in listing a product or service in the Catalogue, please do get in touch.
