This small home was built by Martin and Zoe, as a challenge to create Australia’s first council approved Earthship. Together (and with a lot of volunteer labor) they have worked within the system to create a truly impressive small home. This Earthship is filled with off-the-grid technology, including solar power, rain-water collection, grey water filtration and much more. The home uses a passive solar design and even a natural cooling system using underground tubes. Beyond all that though, it’s beautiful. The design and finish of this home are sure to leave you impressed!
As Owen has often written, Earthships like this could be made much more easily replacing the rammed tires with simple earthbags.
