New Householders, Crowdfunding, A New Moonhouse Expedition and #themoonhouse

Fellow Explorers,

So much has happened lately and we at HQ really owe everyone an update.

Lets get first things first, however and offer Andrea Ahlenius and Lina Ekros a warm welcome as new house holders. Lina is now the holder of moonhouse #2.40 and Andrea is the holder of Moonhouse #2.44. We wish fair winds on Lina’s and Andrea’s coming expeditions and look forward to follow their adventures in the times to come.

No one of you reading this can have missed the grand launch of the bold crowdfunding campaign on May 28. We hinted at this event in an earlier posting and after finding our bearings again we can finally give you an inside report.

The main feature of the crowd funding is the fantastic opportunity for everybody to participate in the artproject that is the Moonhouse. By buying Moon meters and becoming a moonhouse friend on the Moonhouse website you and your friends can become a part of the Moonhouse family and contribute directly to the funding of the Moonhouse. 50 USD will bring the Moonnhouse 1250 meters closer to the moon. It will also immortalise your name on the inside of the house .. on .. the .. moon.

The launch of the crowdfunding activity has been made possible through the support from Falu Rödfärg. Falu Rödfärg has been in the business of red houses for 250 years and it is hard to think of a better and more closely related sponsor.

Associated with the crowdfunding event is a brand new design of the website at where a lot of information about the moonhouse, the art, the technology and its history has been posted. Here at the Moonhouse Expedition we are of course very excited about one feature in particular, the adoption of the Moonhouse Expedition into the stream of activities enabling everyone to participate in the journey to the moon, just the way it was always ment to.  The New Moonhouse Expedition at opens up the Moonhouse Expedition to wider participation through an intutive instruction for making your own house and the possibility of posting pictures directly to instagram using the hash-tag #themoonhouse. Pictures posted with the hashtag will show up on picture stream.

We at the first Moonhouse Expedition are glad to support the Moonhouse Expedition of the Moonhouse Website in any way we can as it’s objectives are the same as those of the expedition in return the new Moonhouse Expedition offers homage to the efforts of the Moonhouse Explorers part of the first expedition. If you are a Moonhouse Explorer your name is mentioned there.  Also, we are proud to say, the carefully handcrafted Moonhouse Models of our expedition are now rare collectors items. How about that.

Congratulations Moonhouse to the successful launching of the crowdfunding. We wish great success and, of course, fair winds for the New Moonhouse Expedition!
