Most of these homes come with acreage.
There were probably 15 to 20 of these homes in this particular addition.
This particular Earthship was still under construction.
Earthships were the brainchild of architect Michael Reynolds and are homes that self heat and cool. They are made of adobe, rough timber with flagstone floors. Solar panels provide electricity and water collection systems on the roof. They also provide composting systems for human waste. These Earthships don't come cheap. Land is expensive around Taos and a one room home can start at $100,000. I found one online for $1,600,000.
One thing is for sure. They are very weird looking sitting out on the stark landscape of Taos. You either like them or you don't. I would have loved to have seen the inside of one of them. Very interesting indeed.
