You can make any lamp into a DC lamp to run off of the solar system in your Earthship. You do need to have a DC circuit in place to wire into. I bought this glass and metal lamp at a yard sale six years ago, waaaay before I finihsed my house. If you have DC monkey face outlet you can just snip the plug off any floor or desk lamp and rewire the end with a DC plug, put a DC bulb in the socket and VOILA! you have DC lamp. In this case we wire directly into the ceiling and put a 25W DC bulb inside.

A lovely, warm June evening up in the high mountain desert...Am rocking my solar powered wifi internet radio over my 8 car stereo speaker system (100% solar as well just like every other light and electronic in my house). Can't stop taking pictures of my bottle bathroom!!

Ron and I arrived in Normandy this past Monday (April 9th). Tuesday morning we went with our host Kevan Trott to a local tire dump which received 30,000 scrap tires a week! It took us two days of sweaty stinky labor to collect the 700 tires we needed for the house!

My dog Dreyfus was barking yesterday morning outside my house and I looked out to see 10 huge birds over near my neighbor's house. I rushed out with my camera and got as close as I could without scaring them. Jen told me today that they were Sandhill Cranes (wingspan 5-6 feet!) Wow!
