Earthship sets sail in Huntington, Vermont

HUNTINGTON — “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure” is more than an old proverb for Amitava Biswas. It is literally the foundation of a new ultra-green home that he and his wife, Phetcharat Saelim, are building into the side of a hill in rustic Huntington.

THE EARTHSHIP, A home being built in Huntington, is nestled into a berm to maximize its energy efficiency and will generate all of its own heat and electricity needs — except for a small amount from the grid to power a Jacuzzi. Independent photo/John Flowers

The people make the Earthship

from http://keemseek.wordpress.com/

It’s been almost a week since I left the Earthship build, and I still haven’t fully physically recovered.

Now that may make me sound like a wimp, but those of you who were there and this was also you’re first time doing labor and construction 7 hours a day for a week, you know what I’m talking about.

For those of you who only know me from the build, I am generally more likely to be found in heels and a snappy outfit with some mascara on, not a bandana and a jog bra, covered with earth. I go to work and sit in front of a computer, real cushy-like. That’s my day job and how I spend most of my time. But I also love camping, the outdoors and new experiences. My husband and I just bought an inflatable kayak that is super sweet. We go for long walks and hikes and we bike. But. I had never really done manual labor. I had never consistently used tools for more than a few minutes at a time to fix an errant shelf in my house. I had never lifted a sledgehammer. I have rarely worked my body to exhaustion, even at the gym.
