Snowdrop Housing Survey



Snowdrop is a holistically sustainable housing initiative working to prototype new ways that modular net-positive homes can take a more humanistic angle. With emphasis on one’s physical, cognitive and emotional well-being, we envision these homes as impactful solutions for simple private residences, community building, or disaster relief projects both domestic and international.

Thank you for taking the time to fill out this anonymous survey. There will be no follow up emails. Answers will remain confidential, only to be seen by members of our team.
