The couple built their home out of recycled materials in a way that’s sustainable and good for the environment. They had no construction skills, lived off-grid for a long time and managed to do it with less than $10,000. They’ve even shared their journey and explained the concept of Earthship Homes via a photo book. So they started a Kickstarter campaign to help raise the funds for printing. Be sure to head over there, watch their inspirational video, and consider getting your own copy of “Nomadic Roots.” which is now available on Amazon (affiliate link).

Taylor & Steph’s $10k Earthship Home
Their tiny home, not actually so-tiny, comes in at about 560-sq.-ft.
It’s a good amount of space, but still very cozy!
At 560-sq.-ft., you still get many of the benefits of tiny, but with a little more space.
And this, by the way, is an earthship home!
It’s completely off-grid, is built with sustainable materials, and only cost them about $10,000 to build (plus a lot of blood and sweat… is it always goes when building your own home)
The couple studied under architect Mike Reynolds and joined the Earthship Biotecture crew to learn how to build net-zero homes, like this.
The materials used really help connect you to nature, as an added bonus. When your home is nature, that’s just awesome.
The passive solar design saves so much energy.
How cool is that? A space to hang their surf boards, a beautiful custom window, the fireplace…
It’s a tiny house fairytale, isn’t it?
This is the kind of thing you get to enjoy if you decide to embark on the difficult but rewarding journey of building your own home.
It’s one of the only ways that you can end up with something so cool and unique as this…
