    What was the bulk of your roof costs?

    The bulk of our roof cost was for the EPDM (roofing membrane) and 8″ of rigid insulation.
    The glass units for the south facing windows and the skylights were also another of our big costs.

    Hi,
    I am extremely interested in building an earthship home and am wondering if I could get an email to contact you? I am living in Newfoundland and wondering if it would be realistic to build here.

    Thanks

    Just made a calculation for the price/Sqf of construction and it s : $347.61/SQF of construction…..This is over all expensive since if you build with conventional materials the costs are just 43$ more expensive than building with rammed tires..

    Not sure where you got $347.61/sqf. Our home is between 2000 and 2400 square feet depending on whether you count interior footage or include the space the tires take up. Even if you assume we built a 2000 square foot home, that would be $73,000/2000sqf = $31.42. And, if you include the tire walls which do actually have a cost to them, the price per square foot is $30.42. I’m guessing you used 2100 square feet and were out one decimal place. By your calculations our home would be 210 square feet x $347.61 = 73,000.

    You are always welcome to contact us through our FB page, The Darfield Earthship or our emails in the contact us section. However, we know very little about the Maritimes and Atlantic Canada. A fellow named Jay Hannigan is building in NB…if you search for Terra Berma on FB, that is his build. There is also a set of two small earthships being built in PEI…search for Earthship PEI, Jordan Cameron.
