New Code Approved Earth Ship Alternative Taking Shape
Categories: Building Methods
New Earth Homes is a code approved alternative to an Earth Ship. Andy Hickman has been developing this project for the last 5 years and is close to finishing.
"For people interested in living off the grid, the main key components for this home, an earth home is taking full advantage of what comes to us naturally in terms of the sun the wind for energy, the rain for your water, and taking advantage of thermal mass as natural insulation. What we're trying to do here is to create a model that is less radical and more socially acceptable. We're taking the fight out of pulling a permit in order to build off grid homes, and here we are five years later." Andy Hickman
