These homes are 100% sustainable AND they’re cheap to build.
They have their own greenhouses and grow crops year-round no matter the climate.
The entire roof of the Earthship funnels rain water to a cistern, which then pumps it to sinks and sowers. Then the used water (grey water) is pumped to the plants. After being cleaned by the plants, the water is pumped into the bathrooms for the toilets which makes it ‘black water’ which is pumped to outside gardens for non-edible plants.
The constant temperature in the home is 70°. The large greenhouse windows always face south to heat up the thermal mass throughout the day.
Solar panels on the roof and optional wind turbines provide the Earthship with all the power it needs.
They are easy to build. One couple in Canada built a 3-story Earthship by themselves in 3 months. They didn’t hire help nor use expensive equipment.
The most basic Earthship is $7,000.
IT’S MADE OF RECYCLED MATERIAL.
I know what I’m going to be living in.
I want this, but collecting rainwater is illegal in America and I really don’t want to go to jail/get fined for that. Gotta support capitalism by buying your natural resources and basic human needs, don’t ya know.
