There are now 31 chapters worldwide in the WikiHouse community.
WikiHouse's Scottish chapter is constructing a WikiCommunityHouse - a build ‘by the people, for the people’. Known as a community-use WikiHouse, the building is being constructed in Edinburgh on a temporary brownfield site in Fountainbridge owned by developer EDI. Led by the Fountainbridge Canalised Initiative and supported by EDI, the WikiCommunityHouse is an addition to the other various 'meantime' community projects, including a community garden. The regeneration master plan includes plans for 340 new homes.

Building a plywood farmhouse: "The plan is to build an ‘agricultural worker’s dwelling’ within a tight budget. We have appointed Architecture 00 to design the first two storey Wikihouse to be lived in. The plan is that it will be built by amateurs (ourselves, friends and family) and will eventually look like an agricultural barn. If the weather is favourable it could go from nothing to weather-tight in just 14 days! ..." check: awikifarmhouse.wordpress.com or at Pinterest.
