Why Building an Earthship House May or May Not be a Good Idea


Economical housing is great for those who find themselves strapped for cash and needing a break. Unfortunately, if you buy something on the cheap often you get what you pay for.

In other words, after a short period of time things go wrong! However, that is not always true.

There are conscientious builders out there, men and women who think beyond the scope of a typical bargain house and have come up with some sincerely strong homes.

Earthship homes are a good example of taking something from nothing and turning it into a strong fortress, a house, that seems ideal on paper.

They are made for every climate, are strong, and can be built from all kinds of scrap materials. The rooms, walls, and internal plumbing are all arranged to take advantage of passive solar heating and cooling.

The idea comes from architect Mike Reynolds and while an Earthship house appears to carry all of the advantages of a comfortable survivalist home, there are also some disadvantages.

    Interesting points; seems well thought out–stuff I’ve read indicates they are pretty durable, but I’ve not worked with one up close and personal…

    Hillary is a part of a political globalest special interest organization that has chosen the most evil religion Islam to bring in a new world order and to take away the second amendment ,freedom of speech and Christianity. Hillary and Obama are letting Isis win to bring in a new world order. Putin is right we are arming Isis to bring in a new world order. Revelation 13.Hillary is a guaranteed failure. When I was younger I had a great vision of the Lord Jesus Christ blood going through my skin into my wrist. Jesus was wearing a heavenly blue garment and holding my hand and then I saw a sprinkle of the Lord Jesus Christ blood going through my skin into my wrist. Hebrews 12:22-28,Heavenly Jerusalem, Acts 2:17-21.1611KJV.Matthew 24,Heaven and earth shall pass away but by no means shall my word pass away. Hillary is setting us up just like the 9-11 victims. Trump will be bringing back the jobs that are disappearing. Wikileaks prove that Hillary was a part of a arms deal to sell Isis weapons that she was paid off to do just like the 5 million that she plans to bring into America to disable Americans to bring in a new world order. Go on you tube and listen to Wikileaks : Hillary Lied Under Oath About Arming Isis, subscriber Lionel Nation a attorney at Law and he says the media does not care about reporting about how dangerous Hillary and Obama are. This is a sign of the rapture or blessed hope that Jesus Christ Prophesied. Epistle of John. Experts are saying out of 86 videos only 1 video shows airplane and a chemical called thermite was found in the dust by over 9 scientists that is only found in demolition projects that are wired and bomb to fall straight down within seconds. 9-11 experts are saying a crime was committed by quickly removing and destroying great evidence, and this is suppose to never happen in a criminal investigation. Three weeks before it happened when it was close they where doing work in there when it is closed a witness described what they where bringing in and it sounds like these scientists are correct who investigated 9-11 properly.9-11 experts are saying a commercial airliner would not be able to be going at that speed because of the low atmosphere level and would not be able to hit the target and also weak parts of the plane like the wings or tail would fall off it . Scientists are saying that only thermite can melt the steel frame which was flowing like lava and the perfect way all three buildings fell in 7 seconds prove that all where wired up with thermite according to the experts. The 3rd World Trade Center tower had nothing and the steel frame melt when that is not possible unless it was wired up with thermite and it was a demolition which means all of them where.It collapsed 7 hours after the first two in a matter of seconds the experts are saying this is clearly evidence all three where wired up with thermite. According to the experts it would only take 7 minutes to make a 3 D Hexagram airplane added to the video of the towers, this is how far technology has gone. Airport records show that flight 11 and 77 where never scheduled to leave that day and never left the gates.Flight 77 never left the runway the people were on flight 93.9-11 researchers have evidence that flight 175 and 93 ,through the freedom of information act ,that radar shows them going to Cleveland Hopkins Airport that was evacuated. Flight 175 became Flight 1289 and Flight 93 both landed at the Cleveland Airport! They also found out Mark Bingham died on 8/30/2001.Researchers have found that some have death certificates and some do not.

    As in most things, there are the good, the bad and the ugly. IMHO what we do need to do is: stop building McMansions; everyone should raise at least a small garden, everyone should compost; and everyone should quit believing that he who dies with the most toys wins. Going back to some old ways, i.e. collecting rain water–be it a barrel or a cisturn–recycling and re-purposing…all doable and help us be more self sufficient. Plus a whole lot healthier. Sorry, getting off the soap box now.
