When I thought what to publish – the list went on and on. If you’d like me to visit a topic – then put it in a comment below.
Comments help us sort out what’s most important. Here is the current list:
- What’s is this site for?
- Earthship or what?
- The art of being a $50 sq/ft spinster
- How find tool deals on CraigsList .
- What matters most – Economy guided home design – How I did it.
- Wringing cost out the building budget – big things first.
Zoning and permitting issues.
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.
