Ok, hopefully this works!

Basically, I want this to be specifically for earthship based media that highlights design elements of interest. If you find a good video on youtube and it is not a repeat, please post and embed it here and feel free to make a comment on what specifically in the video is appealing to you. If you have a picture to share, again feel free pair it with a comment on particular interests.

Remember to remove the "s" from https:// or the embedded video feature will not work.

4:21 - Elevated tub for gravity fed plumbing.

6:30 - Why peeing while you shower might be beneficial.

7:26 - Possible dual purpose vent/light entry. Also elegant round wood frame supporting roof.

9:36 - Specific information on temperature difference between inside the home and outside. 70ish degrees Fahrenheit inside compared to 100 in the greenhouse.

What I like about this video series is the more complex explanation and visual detail regarding the construction of the roof. It has specific information on theory and so far I have not stumbled on a more informative video on this area.

This is the newest video of the complete build. Fabulous demonstration of the finished home from the previous videos.

Not sure why this is marketed as an Earthship design as it more qualifies visually as an earth sheltered concept. With a stretch you can call it an Earthship, but still it looks interesting. Thing worth mentioning is that this design is more visually appealing than functional as it does not incorporate as much thermal mass or sunlight for indoor plants.
