Simple Survival via @earthship_HQ

The Simple Survival Model Earthship evolved from the very basic prototype we constructed in Haiti. The purpose of the original Haiti build was to reevaluate the concept of necessity. No matter how well the "developed world" Earthship prototypes worked, they were absolutely out of the budget of what could be achieved in Haiti. This caused us to take life itself to the basics and try to apply the globally proven Earthship concepts at a ground zero level. We succeeded... and in the end, we (the entire crew of nine) wanted to have one of these for ourselves. We wanted this unit not only because it functioned very well; but because it was very quick and inexpensive to build, thus leaving the owner with a life rather than a mortgage bondage for the next thirty years. This inspired the Simple Survival Model Earthship we are presenting here.
