LiteHaus - Phase 1

The New Frontier

The vision is to build this into a 'school' for radical self reliance with collaborative community dynamics. A donation based hostel and auditorium mixed with a hackerspace in the center of the country, in rural Kansas.

Mission Statement

We are creating a hub at the intersection of creativity, technology, art and music. This project will be a global beacon for creators, visionaries, entrepreneurs, musicians and artistic minds to meet and build ideas that shape the future.

Our purpose is to impact individuals on a fundamental level to radically shift their perspective within the operational framework of society. Through providing a collaborative and self learning environment, we encourage participants to hone their skills, to learn and adapt to new methodologies to expand their toolkit and knowledge necessary to become self reliant, and ultimately build stronger communities. These efforts will be extended virtually, with the potential to provide our collective resources to people all over the world.




At 28,000 SQ ft, the facility itself is expansive. The auditorium has an estimated capacity for over 300 individuals, while the facility as a whole is potentially capable of housing up to 100 individuals for short periods of time.

Funding Needs

Our immediate funding needs are to winterize the building by fixing the hole in the roof of the main building, and to replace the windows.  Our estimated costs to fix everything is within the range of $80,000 - $100,000.  If we were to raise more than intended for the Phase 1 renovations, we will apply the funds towards our budget for Phase 2.
