Earthship Biotecture: Sustainable, Independent Buildings & Systems

earth-ship1

Before visiting an earthship for the first time, you should view the Earthship 101 Movie which explains what earthships are, their construction, how they work for heat, water, and power, and other interesting details. Earthships generally cost about the same as conventional buildings cost in your area. The main difference is that Earthship comes with all of their own systems. Conventional buildings do not and must be “plugged in”. The concept of thermal mass buildings works both to cool and to heat a home. The buildings can be adapted to any climate and still provide a comfortable building. http://www.earthship.net/
