The $70,000 Solar-Heated ‘Earthship’ Home That’s Completely Off Grid
Imagine living in an off-grid home and not ever receiving a utility bill – no electric bill, no water bill, no sewer bill. Even better, you don’t have to stockpile firewood, because your home is heated by the sun.
Sound impossible? It’s not. It is called an earthship home, and on this week’s edition of Off The Grid Radio we take a look at these unique houses that are revolutionizing what it means to live off-grid. Our guest is Craig Cook, who lives in an earthship home with his wife Connie in Canada – where temperatures in the winter often hover around 0 degree Fahrenheit.
Incredibly, their home cost only $70,000.
Craig tells us:
- How his house stays warm in the winter and cool in the summer, without a stove or AC.
- What is different between an earthship home and a typical homestead house.
- How he and his wife have all the water they need – without a well or utility hook-up.
- Why his home incorporates hundreds of used tires … that he got for free.
Craig also shares with us the pros and cons of an earthship home for those considering making the transition. If you’re a homesteader, off-gridder or simply someone who enjoys fascinating people, then don’t miss this week’s show!
