Home Forums General Discussion Earth Ship Reply To: Earth Ship



I would also like to learn more about Earthship builds. I tried to make up something on my own, but I’m in the medical field, I’m not an engineer, or architect.

Is it recommended to buy the blueprints they sell for $5k? Can anyone tell me why the Earthships cost over $200k to build? Also, I want to build it on my own with some help from people I could pay. Is that even possible?

I’ve become suspect of Earthships since I found out they charge so much for their blueprints, the cost to build an Earthship, and the fact they charge people $400 to intern with them (they do provide housing).  They also charge $2500 for an “academy” which does not include housing. It appears to be a money driven company.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. :)
