7 Good Reasons To Consider Calling An Earthship Home

What’s incredible about them is how luxurious they can be, but how practical and environmentally friendly they are. These are the ideal homes to build if you want to live off the land and off the grid. Here are 7 good reasons to consider calling an earthship home.

1. Earth Ships just kinda kick ass

If you are also facing land limitations, then make sure you have a back-up plan. Being able to go to the bathroom during a long hard day of work is not to be taken lightly! Read More

Why Are We Doing This?

Cambodia is a very poor country, and it needs innovative methods of creating a safe and secure places to live, with the minimum amount of external materials, to the lowest possible cost. As we’ve learned the people of Cambodia are very creative, and adaptive to new ideas, and we feel we can inspire change by inviting them to learn with us.
