This off-the-grid home in Adelaide, Australia is something completely different! An Earthship is a radically sustainable and self-sufficient building which uses a combination of modern off-grid technology, super clever passive solar design techniques and a whole lot of recycled materials (including trash) all mixed with earth building techniques to create an incredible, high performance home.

The small Earthship home was built by Martin and Zoe, as a challenge to create Australia’s first council approved Earthship. Together (and with a lot of volunteer labour) they have worked within the system to create a truly impressive small home.

This Earthship is filled with impressive off-the-grid technology, including solar power, rain-water collection, grey water filtration and much more. The home also uses clever passive technologies such as it’s passive solar design and even a natural cooling system using underground tubes. Beyond all that though, it’s beautiful. The design and finish of this home are sure to leave you impressed! I hope you enjoy the full tour of this amazing small house!
