Earthship Academy Argentina: Week 2

We on our ninth day of the Earthship Academy Session in Argentina.  All 73 students are on site together today doing a big push on the building.  Front face framing is being finished.  Thermal wrap and earth burial continue.  Inside, glass bottle brick walls will start to go up.  There is a first coat of plaster on both vaults and tire packout is happening.

This is the most visible Earthship that we’ve ever built and is being done with full support of the local government.  The latitude is the most extreme that we’ve ever built in, farthest from the equator and very close to the South Pole.  This climate will put the Earthship and its systems to the test.  We are honored to be working on this project and thank both the city of Ushuaia and all of our wonderful Academy students from around the world.
