Comments help us sort out what’s most important.  Here is the current list:

  • Earthship or what?

    Zoning and permitting issues.

    1. Hi John:
      Yes – Earthship style dwellings have a number of special considerations. I realized this from the outset. I’ve already had a preliminary meeting with Larimer county relating to egress. Also, I recruited a structural engineer to supervise my design process. Basically he has to approve the design – and then the county will accept it.
      I’ve informally met with the health department – and they invited me to submit my plans for the septic system. My current leach field is rated for 2 bedrooms and I would like to go to 4. When I explained the interior recycling, and pre-processing, the inspector said: “That’s really interesting.”
      I think I have a good start – but far to go.
