About Northeast Georgia Earthship:
Earthship owners, Rosemary Kimble and Andrew Hickman, began their adventure building the first home of its kind in Georgia, in 2010. An Earthship is said to be the most efficient and self-sustaining home being built today. It makes sense in every way, especially considering that all we need to live by is given to us for free, the sun and the rain.
An Earthship gets its power from the sun through solar panels and collects all of its water from rain collected in cisterns. Besides that, gray water from the washing machine, tub and bathroom sink gets rerouted into gray water cells that feed plants in a greenhouse, therefore never losing a resource that would otherwise end up in the septic, causing more waste. Cooling tubes that run below ground and air vents on the roof, act as a natural cooling system, while the sun warms the home in the winter. Though this project speaks of a grander respect in caring for our planet it also just makes common sense.
You can learn more and see the process of the build on facebook, where the entire project has been documented along the way. Follow Northeast Georgia Earthship on facebook and watch the progress your self!
