Vanwadi was as unique a project in its implementation, as it is unique in its concept and function. The entire house was built by voluntary efforts of people from varied age groups and fields.

The design process was an inclusive one, with the adivasi family who were the users contributing with ideas at every stage. For construction, a workshop was held to propagate the eco-friendly technology used. With the expertise of Ar. Malaksingh, and along with a small team of masons, the participants erected the walls. The carpenters prepared the wood from the same land and made the roof.

It was, thus, a "green house" in the truest sense of the word.
