HOLISTIC HOMES OVERVIEW

The Global Model may be the most recognized Earthship, but for every climate, theres an Earthship to match. The simple Hut Earthship designed for the tropics, the Windship designed to survive tsunamis and hurricanes, E.V.E. or Earthship Village Ecologies which addresses the cost of housing and of course the Global Model which will be our focus as it is the best Earthship design for our climate to work from.

Talking Trees is located in what is currently referred to as Ontario, Canada, which has more extreme sustained versions of the conditions in Taos. Taos does experience freezing temperatures but there is a large swing from day to night and winter overall isn't as intense. In Ontario the sub zero temperatures of winter can last 4 months with -20c sometimes lasting for weeks. Taos also receives 283 sun days a year on average while we receive 150. To address these variations in climate Talking Trees has made the first round, of what we're sure will be many modifications to come in the continuing evolution of the Earthship.

DESIGN EVOLUTIONS

The Holistic Home design provides electricity, potable water, contained sewage treatment and sustainable indoor food production, as well as passive heating and cooling while building with recycled and sustainable materials. We are evolving these Earthship-Inspired homes to better suit our Northern Climate. 


One of these features is a Double Greenhouse which allows for twice the food production and adds greater temperature stability to the inner greenhouse and living space. The outer greenhouse can sustain plants all year round, even with temperatures of -30c outside, while the inner greenhouse remains very warm and stable, able to grow tropical plants and fruit.

There are infinite options for the designs and layouts of these homes.
