Tour of a finished Global Model Studio

This is worth watching. This is a walk through of the Global Model studio that was build by Dan Richfield. To see the full process of his build check out his site: Global Model Earthship. This Global Model Earthship Studio is around 800 sq. ft. and as you can see is HUGE.

The One Bedrooms are around 1000 sq. ft. The Two Bedrooms are around 1200 sq. ft. And the Three Bedrooms are around 1500 sq. ft. (Visit for a bit more about the sizes)

A home like this would power, water, and feed you while passively protecting you from the weather and temperatures of the environment... all of this done from what nature provides us naturally!

Garbage Warrior - Documentary of the evolution of a revolution

For all those who want to learn more about Earthship homes and sustainable living watch this incredible documentary of the evolution of a revolution. The more I have researched living sustainable living the more Earthship homes seem the way to go. You can combine the technology of superadobe building with the technology of Earthships.

Imagine a home where nature provides everything you need, where your home is completely off grind, completely self-sustaining. Earthships gather water from rain and snow for use. They gather solar for heating, cooking, lighting, and modern conveniences. They provide you with fresh fruits, vegetables, and even fish. They recycle the water used in everyday tasks for drinking, washing, waste removal, and even hydration of plants. All the while you have not power, water or sewage builds. All the while you have a carbon NEGATIVE footprint because you are removing more than you are putting out! It is a way of life we should all strive towards and can do it NOW, with modern technology and still have the comforts we all desire.
