  • Earthship Webinars happening weekly: Super Sustainable Buildings via Thermal Dynamics & Passive Solar. An Earthship is a type of passive solar house that is made of both natural and upcycled materials (such as earth-packed tires). Earthships can be completely off-grid or partially off-grid. Earthships can be built in any part of the world, in any climate (with a permit) and still provide electricity, potable water, contained sewage treatment and sustainable food production. Earthships are thermal mass homes first, passive solar homes second. Whatever temperature goes into an Earthship, it will hold… and since it is also a Passive Solar House, it is also very tight and interacts only with the sun and the earth for heating and cooling, providing stable comfort year round in any climate.

    I applaud Mike Reynolds for such an ingenious home design and I would like to build one. However, after discovering the price is $8,000 for the plans I was disheartened. If you guys truly want everyone to embrace this then drastically reduce the plan price. It's about 10x too much. At $8K, it seems like an oxymoron. Only people who do not need to use recycled materials can afford to build it. Don't you guys think that if the plans were $100 (for the smaller models) to $1,000 (for the global model) you would more than makeup for the revenue in volume and you'll have way more people embracing this unique concept?

    I think narration would have been more beneficial than the banjo soundtrack.

    I have to have watched this a dozen times, as I am planning to build one. I only just realized you failed to include the gray water system and plumbing, in the foundational construction.. bit of a serious omission..

    We can use the earth differently,more intelligently.First though we must be open to using our minds more insightfully,WISELY.

    When you watch all the ads attached to the vid in order to fool capitalism into funding it's own fall

    I love how the idea of living like this is becoming a more mainstream way of thinking.

    I've been studying these buildings since the early 70s and 80s when I went to Taos New Mexico and saw them for myself, I was first introduced to them by the actor Dennis Weaver who had built one in Colorado... They have all the answers for sustainable living, you can visit them in New Mexico, they will give you tours and explain how the houses work

    It is practical if you’re in an extreme climate - otherwise I’ve always found these to look and feel, when you’re inside, a little like a bunker. No views to the outside. Practical yes if you want to grow all year but this can also be achieved by any ‘lean to’ type greenhouse. When this design was first aired in the 70’s / 80’s it was unique in terms of ‘sustainable solar passive design. However there are so many other materials now - straw - hemp - SIPS etc that I think the Earthship is a choice probably based on local climate considerations and aesthetics.

    Just stayed in the Phoenix ...LOVED IT!!! I want to live in an earthship. There is one thing with the design that I am not sure about the wing/retaining wall has no thermal break so tire walls outside airlock will be say -20 and that will transfer into the airlock ....why not have the insulation penetrate the retaining wall and separate the hot from the cold??

    It appears at least sound quality was invented at that time.

    @8DoverNJ Looks like Google Sketctup. I would LOVE for them to release this model. It's 1000 times better than the one I uploaded to the Sketchup Warehouse following the current Global Model Volume One book. Also, I noticed they changed the front skylight designs as well. I still dream that some day, I will live in one of these.

    I have a new fuel cell capacitor (FCC)! I have an excel analysis on the average home in the US. In the south its a little more, 6.5 kW of solar arrays, 4 kW of my FCC will sustain a refrigeration and freezing 100% of the time, Hot Water systems 125°F all the time. Stoves and Ovens, no problem, as well as dish washing, AC, and washers and dryers okay. Another words, a sustainable system like these Earthships with no batteries that will fail and are toxic. No minimalistic living. Contact me.
