Earthship biotecture has to be one of the least understood sustainable building and living models around. This is not least because they offer SO many benefits that it is hard to even know them all, let alone explain them all! This book is my personal challenge, to explain and teach others just what biotecture is all about with as few words as possible, and with beautiful images for each point. You will discover that many points overlap and share benefits with other points, and this is a part of what makes biotecture so powerful. Simply put, no other method or approach to sustainable building has taken sustainability to this level of perfection. An earthship functions like a finely tuned machine, it is the most finely tuned home ever created. It performs so well, and in so many ways, that it has redefined what a home is supposed to be. An earthship home encounters the forces of nature, mainly the sun, rain, and wind and funnels them into your home to provide everything you need to live comfortably with almost no annual utility bills. Earthships work autonomously and provide a lifetime of heating, cooling, power, water, and even food production with almost no effort or maintenance. Whether it is 40°C hot or -20°C cold, an earthship home can keep you comfortable with little to no additional heating or cooling. An earthship heats and cools itself with no power or moving parts, by using the natural forces of nature to drive it on indefinitely with virtually no maintenance. Earthships achieve this level of performance through the use of biotecture, which is a way of thinking and building that you will understand much more once you have read this book! For the last 7 years I have lived in complete comfort and luxury, with all my survival and comfort needs taken care of by my earthship home. My only utility bills are gas for cooking, which costs me just $10 per month. I haven't got any centralised utilities or municipal connections such as power, sewage etc.. Since this home has been designed with complete autonomy and self-sufficiency in mind, it is able to provide me with all the power, water, and everything else I need to live for free. There is a global crisis in affordable and functional housing, as well as a cultural and community breakdown happening in most of the world. People are sucked into a lifetime of overwhelming debt to own a home and try to find security. The problem is that when you can't repay the loan, you have lost your security and just about everything you had. The knock on effects of having to live and work just to pay the bills stretches far into our culture and our zeitgeist. People desperately need a way out. With the demise of the family unit, people are more vulnerable than ever as they get older. Earthship Biotecture originated in the USA and was invented by Michael Reynolds in the early 1980's. Earthship biotecture is a solution to so many of our global problems, and has evolved to the point that it can deliver you a truly off-grid, self-sufficient and sustainable life... forever! "Centralisation of utilities is killing us, Decentralisation gives us a door to the future. All of a sudden you're in charge of your power, Nobody can shut your power off. You're in charge of your water, You're in charge of your sewage, You're in charge of your life, You own your life. You are free!" Read this book to understand why biotecture is the most compelling sustainable building and living model on the planet.
