I’m architect Earl Parson. In 2016, we bought ten raw acres in Northern Arizona and started on an adventure that has transformed my life. Four Quonset huts later, we are building The Quompound. (Will there be more to come? All I can say is – these amazing round buildings are addicting!)
Now I’m on a mission to share my knowledge and help anyone, anywhere, who wants to build a Quonset hut house.

The Clever Moderns Vision
After 20 years in the Los Angeles architectural custom home industry, I started asking myself why things couldn’t be done differently.
What if, instead of hiring an architect for a (very expensive) full service to design a new home, and paying a general contractor a big markup to build it, there were a way for people to get simple, well designed modern home plans to construct themselves?
What if the designs were open source, so people could easily customize them and make them their own?
What if the designs were flexible, so one concept could be built as a tiny house and later seamlessly expanded as a family’s needs grew?
What if there were a lot of people out there who would build their own home if the process were streamlined for them, and a few simple tools and resources were offered to help them along the way?
This is my vision for Clever Moderns. A community of people who love simple, good design, supporting one another, living the Clever Modern life.
