    Admittedly, having worked for the authors of this website I am biased. That being said, I find myself compelled to comment.

    This is probably the most honest thing I have read about earthships since being exposed to this neat/strange form of construction in 2009. If you are considering starting one of these projects read this post in its entirety.

    Thanks Sandra

    It’s been almost two years now that we begun designing our own earthship adapted to our climate.

    we had an architect made up our design and took steps with the building permits, we bought land, built a small aquaponic system in our current house, made glass bricks, adobe bricks, a passive solar air-heater, built a bermed tire-shed to experiment upon… and we still feel not prepared enough.

    We are planned to begin this summer (2014) and we still have questions on how to do certain details. We worked on several build sites and we do not have a really big experience in construction. Our current house undergo major renovations and I acquired good enough skills I think. I’m the kind of person who can reproduce what I see and built it…

    I guess we will never be ready, but we will go one nevertheless because we are dedicated, for us and for the people already evolving around us. That’s the most exciting aspect of it all. The social connection! But this knowledge need to be spread without always paying a lot for it.

    It’s our intention to also share our experience with others so that subsequents ES constructions can evolve into something better.

    I guess we do not feel ready right now like we did not feel ready when we were thinking of having kids. :-)

    So if I can conclude on my contribution; I want to thanks Darfield team, Sandra and Chris for their blog and FB updates. Thanks for all the other builders out there who give time to soon-to-be builders.

    I do not think it will be an easy ride. But we’ll try to make it a good and positive memory and inspire others around us to do the same.

    Cheers!

    Hey guys, We visited a few years ago, I was with my brother and french girlfriend. I want to thank you for taking the time to inspire us strangers. We are still currently building our earthship in Alberta. Presently we are doing our front footing and the tires are pounded. Due to taking the latter route we havent been very public about it. You guys are truly awsome and I am so thankful that you welcomed us and took the time for us. Not only that but also your blog is of great help, and I think it resonates a lot deeper than it reflects online. Please keep up the great work.
