THE DATE OF THIS TOUR IS TBD. Please check back here for new date, time, directions and carpooling instructions.
(Holding for the Earthship owners to determine the next possible tour date.)
It's promised to be a very cool tour. I hope that will better work with everyone's calendars and the turnout will be HUGE!
Here's a bit more I grabbed from a website about the tour...
"Since Rosemary and co-owner Andrew Hickman do not do private tours of their earthship home, this is a once a year opportunity to see the progress they are making. They ask that you come prepared for cold weather, and you will be required to sign a waiver since it is a construction site. Note taking and pictures are encouraged.
The address is 3015 Wildcat Bridge Rd, Royston, Ga 30662. Use Google maps for directions because a GPS may not get you in the right place. You are welcome to bring friends, but please carpool if you can since there is limited parking. Although it is free, please make donations to builder and tour guide Andy for taking his time away from building to explain what they have done and answer your questions. It is a luxury to have an earthship you can view in person in this region with an expert to explain the details.
This is an awesome project with lots of extras included. It is done with concrete instead of earth, tires and beer cans so would be easier to get past code enforcers. If you have not been following the progress of this four years in the making, be sure to link to their Northeast Georgia Earthship Facebook page which is loaded with pictures. If you are ready to build one like it, talk with builder Andy and see if he can fit you in his schedule."
