Cecilia and I flew from Vancouver to Santa Fe on October 1st. It was the first time we had flown together since she was small – seems funny because she’s traveled to many countries, and so have I… just never together!
Week 4 – Tony’s house on the edge of the Mesa!
Finally pictures of where Tony is actually living. This one bedroom Earthship is 100% off grid. Pretty spartan but it has most things including a fabulous commercial stove. Continue reading Living on the edge of the Mesa
Week 3 – Packaged Model – a little less efficiency and cost.
We’ve made the decision to build a two bedroom Earthship rather than the three bedroom home we originally talked about. We don’t want to build and maintain a larger space than we need. With only Tony and I living in the Earthship, and with the rotunda, it will be plenty of space for us.
Today is exactly 2 weeks since Tony left, and the end of week 1 of his apprenticeship at the Earthship Academy in Taos, New Mexico.
I just received a series of emails containing photos of the week. I’ll post some to the Photo Stream section- when Tony’s back we can edit and add descriptions to them. Continue reading Earthship Academy Week 1
Tony and I are setting off to start a new life… it’s going to take some time for everything to fall into place, but we’ve been talking about and planning this for months. The house we will be building is going to be really special and will reflect our values, our passion for sustainability, love of nature and desire to build community.
Tony is very technical with lots of experience tinkering, rebuilding cars and doing home renovations. He easily understands the big picture and can break it down into bite size pieces. Also, he never gives up! I think being unafraid to try new things is going to be really important as we move this project forward.
