The Earthship home will keep you comfortable in most any climate on the planet. These Earthship plans are the result of 40 years of research and development in the field and on the drawing table. Because these plans are "off-the-rack," this a very "user friendly" approach for the owner/builder. This unit can be the easiest first step into the Earthship method of living. Sizes begin at the 800 square foot "Nest" studio and go up to a 3 bed, 2 bath Earthship and larger.
Because every room surrounds you with thermal mass, the rooms provide an embracing thermal stability. The Earthship modules may be built individually, in a step by step fasion to create a comprehensive approach for all aspects of a completely sustainable home.
Studio - 800 sq. ft. One Bed - 1000 sq. ft. Two Bed - 1200 sq. ft. Three Bed - 1500 sq. ft.
Floor Plan for 2-Bedroom Model
If your county requires that you obtain a building permit, you will need a floor plan with a local engineer's stamp. The engineering fees are additiona, above the cost of these drawing sets. Earthship Biotecture can help you locate a local engineer to stamp the plans, and also provide plan development services at their hourly rates.
All of the construction drawings are designed to meet standard building code requirements. Earthship Biotecture cannot guarantee your plans will qualify for a building permit. That is because before granting a permit, building code departments sometimes require changes or additions to architectural plans that have been submitted. Once we mail your final plans to you and you find they require changes for a building permit, they can do them for you at their normal hourly rates. Please note that they mail you your final plans only after you have reviewed them and given us your approval.
