Earthship Goolwa SA - The Suburbship
Earthship Goolwa is essentially an "open-ended" Earthship floor plan with straw bale walls at each end of the building. This design was developed to suit this small suburban block of 900m2 (30m x 30m). In what is potentially a world first (!) the berm of the Earthship has been re-imagined as a wastewater disposal area that will turbocharge the cooling tubes! It follows all the usual Earthship design principles. It is off-grid for power and sewage and an existing mains water supply can be used in an emergency to top up the rainwater tanks. Council approval has been granted and construction is underway! See the floor plan and images below.
