A lot of the Earth Berm on an Earthship is done by hand, shovel, and much effort. Here are three locals lending a hand on the side of the Studio Earthship.

First the Studio Earthship doorway is prepped, then the Double Can Wall can be started.

Here’s a Bird’s Eye view of the double can wall with insulation in the middle, as added protection against condensation and humidity on this Gulf Island Earthship Build.

Today was Brian’s last day, he managed to stay an extra week, and was able to see a large part of the Earthship building process. Brian is from Calgary, and a fellow Scout Leader. I’ll certainly miss his morning company at breakfast.

Tyler and Bill both arrived from Winnipeg, and I’ll always be thankful for their entertaining success in tarping mine and Jenn’s tent while Setting up Camp, when this whole adventure began!

    So great to see progress of this project.
    I have 1 request:could you take a picture of our son Adam up close. We really miss him and it warmed my hart to see other participants up close. I kept looking for Adam. Who knows,maybe some day!
    Keep up the good work.
    Take good care, love to all of you hard workers.
