This mini earthship-style cabin is built with recycled tires and glass bottles, cob, and a gorgeous green roof. It’s a 1-room cabin so the bedroom, kitchen, and dining room are all in one open concept space. The bathroom is the only thing that is separate from the living area.
While this micro cabin design looks a lot like an earthship, the design does not include all 6 principles of an earthship, as outlined by Michael Reynolds: https://www.earthshipglobal.com/#
This cabin is indirectly powered with solar, it’s built with reclaimed and natural materials, and it has a passive solar design. It does not collect rainwater, produce food or treat grey and black water.
We visited this green building during a recent trip to Portugal and were excited to see such a neat space surrounded by inspiring projects and other structures. It has a natural pool/pond, trails, a yurt, a straw bale home, a yoga studio, dogs, chickens, horses, and a cat, as well as extensive gardens and fruit trees. A beautiful permaculture space/eco-resort to visit for sure!
