French Earthship First Week






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!

Hi Kirst
Looks like you guys are doing a HEAP of work up there - great stuff.
We've dug out the planter hole and will put in the bathroom foundations soon...are you guys coming down or was that rather prolonged silence a no can do?

Looks great, how would a guy in northern Canada go about building one of these? Where would I start?

You're amazing. I'm glad you exist in the world of 'being green' and 'design'.

Hi Kirst!

I'm a student doing some research on Earthships. I have a couple of questions for you guys. Would you please share your email?

Best,
