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.
The Encounter model seems ideal for northern climates, especially for snow melt in winter. I like how you have options for different bedroom layouts but would need to see a preview of what that looks like before committing cash for the drawings.
I am thrilled to be moving forward on a dream that started 15 years ago. I watched garbage warriors and was inspired. The plans are the first step. I keep them on the coffee table and show them off to everyone.
Was sent the wrong drawings, measurements conflicted from section to section, pages out of order, some pages were not relevant to the encounter, missing the mechanical set. Was send most of the corrections as a digital image after two weeks. Still some errors but will be able to get by with what I have. The drawings were shrunk making the scale stated on the page is not correct. One page says 1/4"=1' but really it's 13/64" = 1'. I'll be able to work with what I got but for the price tag I expected something more put together.
Communication and transaction was great. I have been wanting to get this set for a while now and am so happy with the quality of the drawings. Thank you.
