    First off I would like to say that your site is just wonderful. My wife and I want to build an earth shelter home and the earthship concept has really taken hold on us. We live in central texas and the summer temp. is between 96f-105f. My concern is that the thermal mass will not be enough to cool our house off. Would it be best to creat an atic to run ducting for a centralized AC unit? What is your take on the extream heat issues that we face every summer all summer?

    I think you would be surprised by how cool the house would be on its own. I think Earthship Biotecture recently finished building one in Texeas…perhaps you could get better answers from them? http://www.earthship.com Our issue is different; how to keep warm all winter. :)

    hi any advice on a roll-out-able membrane that can be laid in a box gutter and up the sides in a continuous surface to stop leaks? I am DIY and I think I have seen something somewhere that is laid out then using a heat gun is then waterproof? Any suggestions appreciated. Cheers M

    We have not actually done anything yet like you propose. I think as soon as we get to the planters we will be considering this. If you come up with any brainwaves in the meantime, please share!
