New Code Approved Earth Ship Alternative Taking Shape New Earth Homes is a code approved alternative to an Earth Ship. Andy Hickman has been developing this project for the last 5 years and is close to finishing. "For people interested in living off the grid, the main key components for this home, an earth home is taking full advantage of what comes to us naturally in terms of the sun the wind for energy, the rain for your water, and taking advantage of thermal mass as natural insulation. What we're trying to do here is to create a model that is less radical and more socially acceptable. We're taking the fight out of pulling a permit in order to build off grid homes, and here we are five years later." Andy Hickman

The Most Versatile and Economical sustainable green building design in the world” The great thing about these designs is Earthships catch water from the sky (rain & snow melt) and use it four times. Water is heated from the sun, biodiesel and/or natural gas.

A Look at the Models of Earthships A Look at the Models of Earthships Earthship designs are constantly evolving because they are decentralized and many are built each year. This allows for constant evolution. We have many models in our history which all played their part in our on going evolution. We have presented here our favorite models which have very pragmatic reasons for being favorites.

Earthships An Earthship is a radically sustainable building made of recycled materials, such as earth filled tires. An Earthship is defined by 6 key principles: – Thermal/Solar Heating & Cooling – Solar & Wind Electricity – Contained Sewage Treatment – Built with Natural & Recycled Materials – Water Harvesting – Food Production. An Earthship is a new kind of building and a new kind of architecture. An Earthship is a building that will take care of you – at it also happens to be sustainable, affordable, and meets all your local building codes. Earthships are built to utilize and maximise all available local resources, in particular energy from the sun. For example, windows on sun-facing walls give access to light and heat, and the buildings are generally shaped like a horseshoe to increase natural light during colder times of the year.

Living off the Grid - Earthships An Earthship is a type of passive solar house made of 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. Earthships are primarily designed to work as autonomous buildings using thermal mass construction and natural cross ventilation assisted by thermal draught (Stack effect) to regulate indoor temperature. Earthships are generally off-the-grid homes, minimizing their reliance on public utilities and fossil fuels. Earthships are built to utilize the available local resources, especially energy from the sun. For example, windows on sun-facing walls admit lighting and heating, and the buildings are often horseshoe-shaped to maximize natural light and solar-gain during winter months.
