My husband and I spent 2 nights in Lemuria in early April. We were both completely impressed. My husband is a licensed builder, a master home inspector and a renewable energy installer. So he was skeptical of the design before we arrived. He came away very impressed. He was most impressed at how comfortable the room temperature was on the... More

I was quite impressed with the work being done at Earthship Biotecture. A dedicated crew of designers and craftsmen have proved that one is capable of living in a self sustaining structure, while recycling cast off materials that would only go to fill over crowded landfills. A visit to Earthship will make it clear that one can live quite nicely... More

I very much enjoyed the tour, video/slide show, and personal question time with a staff member at the Visitors Center. The recycling of materials in the construction of the sustainable homes and the sustainable practices (e.g., solar panels for power, reclaimed water/snow, greenhouse along sunny side of the home) were fascinating to see in practice. As I learned, these homes... More

A truly bizarre experience. This is a really unusual thing to see. People living off the grid in re-used and recycled materials. It is worth checking out. The houses are private, and most of the roads are posted with no trespassing signs. There is the main attraction tour, through a large earth ship, with videos, and a walking tour. The... More

We stayed in the Studio Earthship for two nights. This was a really cool experience! It was such a unique experience that the little details don't matter like they might in a hotel. Everything was surprisingly comfortable and plentiful-- from hot water to drinking water to the entire space. It was great to feel far away from everything in an... More

We spent a night in the Lone Tree II. Freezing cold outside, cozy and quiet inside. We watched a short video on the construction technique, and spent some time with a very enthusiastic intern who showed us how the house worked. We loved the greenhouse, the colorful tile in the bathroom, the stained glass window, and the lovely soft finish... More

I'd heard about this place, but recently we were able to actually visit it and tour the area. Very interesting, love the concept of living off the grid and using materials we already have to build a home. There is a short video as part of the entrance fee, it was interesting. I loved learning about how they recycle all... More

My husband and I stayed one night as a treat for me. I have been a Mike Reynolds fan for more than 15 years. My husband is the eternal sceptic. Bah humbug is his catch cry. We had a most fabulous time. The house is silent as no other house can be. There is no airconditioning to burble in the... More

What an experience. We stayed in the Studio Earthship near the visitors center. It was perfect for me, my twin sister and my 25 year old son. Let me tell you all of the cool things we experienced: 1. We sat on the roof and watched an amazing lightening storm over the mountains. 2. We made amazing fish tacos for... More

We recently managed to stay at HelioHouse, one of a growing number of earthships dug into hillsides in the desert just north of Taos, New Mexico. It was a truly "sustainable" home and an exciting "green" experience. What do we mean by that? Insulation was provided by earth-filled used tires, walls built from earth-packed used bottles and cans, electricity from... More
