Here’s an overview of the smaller Studio Earthship.

The East side entrance to the Studio Earthship needs to be plastered… and inside the Greenhouse Hallway planter is almost filled.

Crew are continually teaching and giving instruction to interns.

Here’s a close up of the finished green Pro-Panel flashing on the West entrance (left). An interior shot of the finished Structolite plaster finish, showing the natural bulge outlining the shape of the tire wall that’s been ‘Battered Back’ (right).

The West side of the Studio Earthship still needs work with tires and a Can Wall on top.

The chimney style can wall on the East side is coming along nicely… on the right is a birds eye view.

I’ve been working with crew on the main house Earthship ‘airlock’ doorways. These need to have insulation board inside a double can wall. This can be a lot of ‘fernickity’ work around switch plates.
