Simple Survival Earthship Design

Simple Survival Earthship Design by Michael Reynolds.


The Simple Survival Model Earthship evolved from the very basic prototype we constructed in Haiti.  The purpose of the original Haiti build was to reevaluate the concept of necessity.  This was important because the budget for the Haiti prototype was basically non existent.   Haiti is a third world country and the people there have nothing…  and even less after the earthquake.  No matter how well the “developed world” Earthship prototypes worked, they were absolutely out of the ball park of what could be achieved in Haiti.  This caused us to take life itself to the basics and try to apply the globally proven Earthship concepts at a ground zero level.
