Description

The space

I recently finished building this house myself over the past 3 years. It is 99% complete. There are a few finishing touches that are not done but the house is 100% comfortable and 100% livable.

This house is called an Earthship, a totally off grid house that catches its own rain water, generates its own electricity and stays at a steady 72 degrees all year round without the use of any fuel or electricity what-so-ever!

Don't let the term "Off Grid" fool you, this house has all the modern amenities. WiFi, Netflix with a flat screen tv and Bluray player, large refrigerator, large oven/range with a powerful exhaust hood, large bathroom with a luxuriously deep tub and stone all around. There is even a high efficiency washing machine in case you need to do laundry.

The sun heats the house passively, but don't worry, you can still sleep in after a late light with black out shades that let you control when the sun illuminates this beautiful space.

Interaction with guests

Guests will be met by the host and given a tour of the house. Information will be given on how to live in an off grid Earthship so that your stay will be easy and fun! There is even a Youtube video that explains all the functions of the house.

The neighborhood

The neighborhood is very quiet. My favorite thing to do is take the dog for a walk at sunset.

Other things to note

Dogs are permitted with an extra $25 fee per dog. That one time fee is for your entire stay no matter how long. There is one queen size bed that sleeps 2 and a super comfortable thick, memory foam full sized futon mattress we set up on the floor that sleeps an additional 2 guests. Additional adult guests are $15/night each. Kids are free. 4 guest max.

Please no smoking inside the house and keep dogs off the bed.

Hi! My name is Dan and I built an Earthship in Taos, NM with my bare hands. The entire project is documented on my Website and on

I love to travel around the world, grow my own food, and build furniture and houses. Currently I'm a sawyer in Brooklyn, NY. That's right, I own a business that saws lumber from fallen New York City trees.

I love the time I get to spend at my home in Taos, but when I'm not there it's available for all of you to enjoy it as well!
