* We need a complete paradigm shift on how housing is produced from permitting
to financing to construction.
* The traditional construction triangle is Good-Fast-Cheap. It is said
you can only do two out of three of these. It is possible to do all three,
but we need to look to different methods to make it happen.
* Viviendas goal is to have their employees
only use safety glasses, gloves and a wrench to finish a house on site.
