Building An Earthship In Darfield, B.C.

We are a family of five living in Darfield, BC.
Our house is six hundred square feet in total and we are feeling cramped.

We have decided to build an earthship!

So starts the adventure ...

Getting ready to clear and excavate

This morning we shot levels with the transit and decided roughly where the earthship would be placed. We now have to take down and deal with three large dead birch trees. We have to move our pool patio and composters. The clothesline has to be moved. We are not sure how long this will take although I suspect the root systems on the birch trees are extensive and they may be our biggest challenge. We hope to start excavating early next week.
