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.
Thanks for your plans! I am thankful for the price you're selling them at, and appreciate all the detail in them.
One thing I wish the purchase came with was a digital collection of all the documents I'll need to send my engineer in .pdf format.
I'm not sure how to do this now because the pages are oversize so scanning it is out of the question. I might have to snap photos of the pages they want and upload it that way. The only downside is they could be difficult to see in photo format, which is why I wish I had everything in .pdf.
Anyways, I'm excited to begin building my Earthship Global! :) God bless Michael Reynolds and your entire team down there at Earthship Biotecture from everyone at Letsgrowfarm.ca here in Montague, Ontario, Canada.
