Thank you for the great resources. The drawbacks you referenced were the same I had concerns with, so your advice was on target. I like the suggestion of using a conex as a platform to live on top of and then build from there.
Thanks again!

I'm still just a tire kicker, but dig the wealth of info you other permies have to offer - thank you!
So - I have a wee plot of land to build on, and am looking at using a conex shipping container to store my stuff and live in while I build. That seems tiny to me, so I trust I'm in the right place to ask: any experience with this? Suggestions on venting/airflow? Insulation? Keeping critters out when the door is open so I don't suffocate in the heat?

And secondly, and good reference material on building tiny tree houses?

Thanks again!

Welcome fellas! Just starting the process of moving out of the rat race, and a beehive is one of our (MANY!) first projects. So thankful to permies.com and the both of you for sharing a wealth of knowledge!

I work for an ad agency, and do video editing for a living. My number one suggestion on getting more views is to keep the video's short and sweet. When I read "80 minutes of a keynote address" I reflexively start yawning - no offense intended as I trust the content is captivating. For the most part though, people have very short attenti - Hey look! A squirrel!!
We're in Chattanooga, but heading toward Sequatchie Valley with some friends who have land and are almost done with their place. Looking to build, maybe as soon as this summer.

I'm in SE TN, just across the border of NE GA. I'll be lurking on this site, but holler at me if a strong back/weak mind would help anyone!

Just starting my research into alternative construction and all that goes with it. I'm not exclusively considering earthships, but I'm posting under that forum since I lean that direction.

My question: Most everything I can find about earthships is based around the warm, dry southwest, so I wonder how the earthship principles translate to a hot, wet TN climate. Anyone care to share their thoughts and ideas and/or point me in the right direction? Thanks!
