Earthship Ironbank – Full Steam Ahead!

I was asked nicely to stop building my earthship (on account of neglecting to follow the proper procedures) so I thought it best to do so… but now, lo and behold, the wheels of bureaucracy churned out a… building permit!

As far as I know this is the first time an earthship has been approved in Australia: I’ve heard of other tyre walled homes in Aus but I think this is the first time a tyre wall with NO footings, and an earthberm has been approved. One thing I’m not allowed to do is irrigate the planter with greywater, nor flush the loo with treated greywater, but I’ll be fighting that (very poor) decision. With waste conservation initiatives it’s one step at a time here in South Australia, the driest State in the driest continent.

Planning to run some workshops in January 2014 to land this one bedroom earthship – stay tuned!
