At the second annual HIVE Conference in Los Angeles, we were honored to be listed – along with Elon Musk – in the 2017 HIVE 50 – people, products, and processes that are leading the charge to inspire housing creativity, higher performance, and better solutions!  We were included in the “design” category for our innovative work on Desert Rain, the world’s first fully certified – residential – Living Building.
