 The 'Global Model' Earthship features Michael Reynolds' latest in Earthship technologies and design. The greenhouse separated from the main living space allows for superior temperature control. The home features cooling through tubes buried in the berm behind the home. The roof slopes to the north allowing higher ceilings near the windows.


The front door opens up directly into the greenhouse which also serves as the main hall for the home. This greenhouse hallway is flourishing with a lush green jungle of plants taking water from the home's gray water system and filtering the water through their roots.

The bedroom sits at its far west end. Glass doors and windows bring in light from the greenhouse. Tires filled with rammed earth make the exterior walls, while the adjacent bathroom is separated by a can wall.


The bathroom features tiled walls and floors as well as a flagstone floor shower. It is plumbed with both fresh water for the sinks and showers, and gray water for the toilets. This bathroom sits in between the bedroom and kitchen. Behind it is a pantry area that will also house the home's laundry equipment.

Looking out of the home from the main kitchen and living area, the high desert and mountain views create a pleasing panorama.


Michael Reynolds and Earthship Biotecture have built this 1 bedroom, 1 bath earthship in the Greater World Community. The home is sized and priced comparable to similar traditional homes in the Taos area. Sustainability meets affordability in a home sized for one or small family livability. Earthship Biotecture estimates that annual utility bills for this home will not exceed $100 per year!

Those familiar with Earthship design will note both similarities and differences from previous Earthships. The top of the green house is the highest point of the house and features an operable ventilation box to exhaust hot hair. The photovoltaic panels sit at the top of the greenhouse. The primary doors to the home enter through the greenhouse enabling this space to serve as an airlock thus further separating interior living space from the outside air.

The greenhouse contains most of the homes gray water planters. Here the plan shows how it runs the entire length of the home.
