A Watershed Moment: The Nest

For this week’s Watershed Moment, we sit down with Matthew Fowler, who talks about The Nest, a future living building challenge house in Grand Rapids’s Baxter Neighborhood.

“The Nest is a dream…the bottom half will be a community space, and [in] the top half my wife and I will live and have rooms for guest bedrooms, and other places for people to stay,” said Fowler.

Fowler sees the concept of a “living building” as one that has a positive impact on the earth: it both gives back and does not take from the earth.

“It’s able to create its own energies from natural, sustainable ways,” said Fowler.
