Formula to Spread Earthships

Formula to Spread Earthships

Earthship Biotecture worked with Long Way Home in November of 2011 to build Maria and her family a home. The formula to create a sustainable building for a family is still evolving like the home itself. The 3-U Survival Pod Earthship can currently be built in any under developed (or developed) country. It takes about $60,000 to build. It is about $25,000 in materials, $20,000 in modest crew labor and $15,000 for transportation costs etc. Put together $60,000, we can build a 3-U S-Pod. We have people (students) who are looking to work for us in exchange for learning. The money that is raised with the tuitions is put directly back into the house and labor costs which allows us to be able to build these homes. These are ground-up, start-to-finish builds that allow people to volunteer and see what goes into the building process.
