The first book in the Earthship Volume Trilogy written by Michael Reynolds. In Earthship Volume 1: Build Your Own, he describes earthships, the theories behind them, the need for them and why they work. He then dives into the details of how to actually build one.

An Earthship is a structure that is self-sufficient. It is a building that provides it’s own heat, cooling, water, electricity and sewage treatment. In addition it is built with reused or otherwise environmentally sensitive materials, that are relatively cheap, readily available, and easy to use. Used automobile tires meet all of these criteria and make the basic building block for an Earthship.

Interesting, enlightening, sensible

Excellent reference though some techniques are dated. Enjoy the philosophical sidebars. Absolutely necessary for anyone intending a tire bermed Earthship.

I have been interested in earthship design for about 20 years. This book answers most of my questions. I'll buy the 2nd to complete my knowledge.

The title is great!

The content, is very very interesting, all the things we have to think about building an earthship are amazing. Makes me think as a human being in how far I am part of this beautiful universe! Looking forward to finishing the book and see if I can create an opportunity to find a way to build one myself! (Hopefully with a little help of my friends ;-))
