We will do this by creating the worlds most advanced manufacturing plant for Tiny Homes, Homes and Commercial buildings. Combine the manufacturing with an alternative energy distributor in order to market cost effective zero energy homes around the world.

The concept of cleaner, healthier living, promoted  by building affordable, energy independent homes and commercial  buildings is just the beginning. “BIOS” is life, pure and simple. “BIOS” is about teaching people to do well, by doing good!  The “BIOS” concept in its most basic form is powerful enough to bring about a fundamental change through out the world that can save the environment and boost the economy.


The Goal: Make the term, “Made In America” mean something again!  We  will do this by building and shipping zero energy tiny houses globally from a Connecticut manufacturing facility. We are building an employee owned organization, developed as a social business enterprise, that will grow rapidly and vertically through friendly acquisitions and sharing of knowledge among similar and complimentary organizations.

BIOS will lead the world in to an age of healthy living and clean renewable energy, an age that spawns new technology and an industry that creates an economic boom on a global basis. BIOS is more than a business plan, it is a philosophy.  You can do well by doing good, the BIOS concept is a model of social responsibility.

Exporting: It’s time “Made in America” meant something again.  In 2008 BIOS shipped a 1400 sf home to  to Germany with double wall construction and within 2 months we received 5000 pricing requests from around the world.

“The best part of living in a little house is discovering that I can now work part time,” Williams told FORBES. “There’s no hefty mortgage or utility bills, no credit card debt tied to fixing the furnace or purchasing a new couch to fill the void in the living room…there is no void in the living room. Now I’ve got time to hang out with my friends, and to go for a long walk in the middle of the day.” Forbes Magazine

“The tiny house movement is gaining interest not just for it’s novelty, but for the allure of reduced costs, reduced environmental impact, and a simpler lifestyle.” Huffington Post

Building The Zero Energy Tiny House Team

REALTYTRUSTThe Green Marketing Company will market the zero energy tiny house manufacturing company. Realty Trust Corp is our global sales team for zero energy tiny houses. Connecticut Carpenters will do the actual construction of the tiny houses. Bios Building Technologies will provide the land use consulting for our tiny house communities and for our clients.

BIOS Centers will be constructed and remodeled to house the sales teams around the world. BIOS Centers will be marketed as green living expos. Regional Centers will average 15,000 to 100,000 sf with satellite offices ranging from 500- 2500 sf. The first center is being rehabbed in Thomaston CT.

Zero Energy Tiny House Conservation Subdivisions

Developments are planned that will integrate the larger buildings with tiny houses which provide space to mingle with others in the community.  The simple concept is a conservation subdivision that maximizes open space for recreation and permaculture.

Zero Energy Tiny House
The “BIOS” Care Center A Congregate Housing facility powered by the Earth and Sun! A radical departure from the typical nursing home or assisted living facility. “Bios” creates a small community for a group of people of all ages, caregivers and friends. Bios means life, and the “Bios” care center is a place that focuses on life. Constructed with state of the art green building materials, heated and cooled by the earth and powered by the sun.

Amazingly the building was approved by the wetlands commission in Brookfield, CT on a 40,000 sf lot adjoining wetlands.

The zoning commissioner was quoted as saying, ” this is 7 times larger than the building we just denied for being too big, but I’m going to vote for it because I think its the way all buildings should be designed.”  We created a business plan to open a manufacturing facility, and then… well 2008 happened.

As the real estate and financial markets crumbled, we sat back and watched, built strength and we now plan to reemerge as leaders in the zero energy tiny house market.

Tiny House Background 

Via Wikipedia   “In the United States the average size of new single family homes grew from 1,780 square feet (165 m2) in 1978 to 2,479 square feet (230.3 m2) in 2007, and to 2,662 square feet (247.3 m2) in 2013, despite a decrease in the size of the average family.[2][3] Reasons for this include increased material wealth and prestige.[2]

The small house movement is a return to houses of less than 1,000 square feet (93 m2). Frequently the distinction is made between small (between 400 square feet (37 m2) and 1,000 square feet (93 m2)), and tiny houses (less than 400 square feet (37 m2)), with some as small as 80 square feet (7.4 m2).[4] Sarah Susanka has been credited with starting the recent counter movement toward smaller houses when she published The Not So Big House (1997).[2] Earlier pioneers include Lloyd Kahn, author of Shelter (1973). Henry David Thoreau, and the publication of his book “Walden” is also quoted as early inspiration.[5]

Tiny houses on wheels were popularized by Jay Shafer who designed and lived in a 96 sq ft house and later went on to offer the first plans for tiny houses on wheels, initially founding Tumbleweed Tiny House Company, and then Four Lights Tiny House Company (September 6, 2012).[6][7]

In 2005, after Hurricane Katrina, Marianne Cusato developed Katrina Cottages, that start at 308 square feet (28.6 m2) as an alternative to FEMA trailers. Though these were created to provide a pleasant solution to a disaster zone, Cusato received wider interest in her design from developers of resorts, for example.[8]

With the financial crisis of 2007–08, the small house movement attracted more attention as it offers housing that is more affordable and ecologically friendly.[9]Overall, however, it represents a very small part of real estate transactions. Thus only 1% of home buyers acquire houses of 1,000 square feet (93 m2) or less.[10]Small houses are also used as accessory dwelling units (or ADUs), to serve as additional on-property housing for aging relatives or returning children, as a home office, or as a guest house.[10] Typical costs are about $20,000 to $50,000 as of 2012.[10]

In Oakland, California, Gregory Kloehn builds small houses out of found materials, for an estimated cost of $40.[11][12]

Small and tiny houses have received increasing media coverage [13] including a television show, Tiny House Nation,[14] in 2014 and Tiny House Hunters. The possibility of building one’s own home has fueled the movement, particularly for tiny houses on wheels. Tiny houses on wheels are often compared to RVs. However, tiny houses are built to last as long as traditional homes, they use traditional building techniques and materials, and they are aesthetically similar to larger homes.[15]

Some companies have put into motion plans to create tiny home developments.[16]  BIOS Building Technologies is one of those companies with their own twist, they will create Zero Energy Tiny House subdivisions. Steve Schappert founder of BIOS Building Technologies, designed the congregate living facility above that featured 300-600 sf units within a 28,000 sf building.

Schappert plans to use his expertise in design, energy, construction, real estate and zoning to acquire parcels for the development of zero energy tiny house developments.
