The Nautilus Earthship was a custom Earthship based with a floor plan based on the Fibonacci series. It was built in 1996 on a lava rock site with full-height tire walls that spiraled up from the ground and were topped with vigas. The outside of the un-bermed thermal mass tire walls were insulated on the outside with straw bales. This one bedroom home was around 1200 square feet and completely off-the-grid with all Earthship power and water systems. It was used as a nightly rental for eight years and many guest from around the world got to enjoy living in this functional, sustainable piece of art.
