Author Rachel Preston Prinz and contributing authors discuss the history, research, design issues, and evolution of Earthships, drawing on the knowledge of thousands of builders, craftsmen, and designers who have mastered the art of earth sheltering. Then, they walk readers step by step through design, offering a wealth of resources that can inspire, inform, and educate. Within, readers will find the tools needed to understand their place's culture, architecture, and climate¡­ and the ideal building methods for their climate, personality, values, and budget.THE NEW GENERATION OF EARTHSHIP ENTHUSIASTS:

Does not want to cart questionable building materials long distances and call it "green".
Wants to build locally and naturally¡­ and they want to build it themselves.
Wants their buildings to be cool in summer, warm in winter, the humidity to be predictable and regular; and they want to minimize pests and allergens.
Wants to be able to get a permit and insurance, and resell their homes if they want to; or pass them on if they can.
They want a smaller home that is "just right"¡­ for their budget, time, ability, energy use, and maintenance.
They want to make their home easy to manage, maintain, and get around in, even if they are in a walker or wheelchair.
They want their home to feel like it is made from and relating to the earth: in views, in light, in fresh air, in the ability to grow food, and in a beautiful landscape that supports the home.

Finding the balance between all these desires is a delicate and lengthy process of discernment, study, and goal-setting. That is what this book aims to help you do.
