A small and humble Earthship nestled in the high desert of Taos, New Mexico. Earthships offer the opportunity to experience off-grid living with the amenities of modern-life but without the strong dependency on a fossil fuel-based grid infrastructure.

The space
The house was built about two years ago in what is known as the "gravel pit" of the Greater World Community, the largest (legal) off-grid sub-division on the planet! It is situated in a very private place which is perfect for those looking for a retreat.

All of the utilities that one would normally use municipal infrastructure for are taken care of by the house itself. With electricity captured from sunlight and stored, rain and snow melt collected into large cisterns, and a wall of thermal mass, charged by the sun, that keeps the house at a relatively constant 72°F all year round.

With all of that, there is a full-sized fridge, a stove and oven for cooking your delicious meals, Internet access, and a standing shower.

There is a single full-sized bed that can comfortably fit two and an air-mattress that can fit another two.

The house is about 20-25 minutes to the Ski Mountain and 15 minutes to get into downtown Taos. Close enough to town for access, but far enough away in nature for contemplation.
