What we're about

An Earthship (pioneered by architect Michael Reynolds) is a type of off-grid sustainable home that uses non-conventional ways to push green design to the max. The end goal is to have a home that takes care of the people living in it by tapping into the local environment without the need to plug into utilities or outside resources (water, sewer, or electric company.)

An Earthship addresses six principles or human needs:

• Maintains its own steady temperature

• Generates its own electricity

• Treats its own sewage, onsite

• Utilizes natural and recycled materials during construction

• Harvests and stores it’s own water from the sky

• Grows food on-site
