Brand new studio Earthship as seen on Off Grid Build! Just search for "Off The Grid Build" to find it. Experience Off Grid living with all the modern amenities in the beautiful high desert mesa just outside Taos, NM.

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.

Other things to note
Dogs are permitted with an extra $50 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 $25/night each. Kids are free. 4 guest max. Please no smoking inside the house and keep dogs off the bed.

I have set the cancellation policy to "Moderate", which means that you will receive a full refund if you cancel 5 days or more before your reservation begins. Airbnb does not allow me to fine tune this policy so I must do that in writing here. If any portion of your reservation falls on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Years Eve, New Years Day, Thanksgiving Day, Memorial Day, Labor Day, Columbus Day, or Valentines Day, there will be a full refund with 30 days notice. There will be a 50% refund given for a cancellation 5 days to 29 days before it begins. There will be no refund given for cancellations within 5 days of the start of a reservation that falls on these holidays.

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

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 (Website hidden by Airbnb) and on (Email hidden by Airbnb) 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!
