Earthships are super energy and water efficient homes that are typically off-grid but can also be grid connected. This means little to no water and electricity bills plus the empowering feeling of self-sufficiency! They are made with natural materials such as earth and straw and up-cycled materials such as tyres and bottles. The design ensures that winter sun gets in and summer sun stays out, resulting in glorious indoor living conditions without the need for an air-conditioner. Underground “earthtubes” and solar chimneys ensure excellent ventilation and therefore good air quality. A beautiful indoor, food producing garden is also part of the Earthship design. Earthship construction methods are easy to do yourself so you can save money by putting in your own labour and only pay the builder to do the stuff you can’t do
