Description

I have taken a minor break from the historical reconstruction project I am working on to bring you all a different kind of modern architecture build. This is an Earthship. Wikipedia states:

"An Earthship is a type of passive solar house that is made of both natural and recycled materials (such as earth-filled tires), designed and marketed by Earthship Biotecture of Taos, New Mexico. The term is a registered trademark of Michael Reynolds, founder of Earthship Biotecture.

Earthships are intended to be "off-the-grid ready" homes, with minimal reliance on both public utilities and fossil fuels. Earthships are constructed to use available natural resources, especially energy from the sun. Earthships are designed to use thermal mass construction and natural cross ventilation, assisted by thermal draught (Stack effect), to regulate indoor temperature."


This build, like all of the rest of mine, is fully furnished and ready for its new tenant to move in. The kitchen is fully equipped with a 2 door refrigerator, 3 burner cook-top and plenty of both counter space as well as cabinet space so you can store all the food you need to here. The master suite is equipped with a toilet which disposes of your waste in an ecologically friendly way by feeding it into the reservoir below the garden beds in the front entryway. As with all Earthship constructions, this home has a fully functional and beautiful ecosystem within its garden bed which allows the growing of food and flowers as well as a beautiful panoramic window which floods the home with revitalizing sunlight through most of the day!

I love this design, but it never builds completely. Every time I try it, I'm left with a huge chuck missing in the middle.   by Ipixus52
