Few views can top those from REACH Community and this
earthship project for sale there. This mostly-completed
earthship provides an opportunity to enjoy those views in a home
that you can complete and customize to your liking.
The following video will take you on a walkthrough tour
of the property:
The home sits in R.E.A.C.H. Community - one of Michael
Reynold's three earthship communities - located about 15 miles
north of Taos on the mountain slopes overlooking the entire
valley and beyond.
A few notes about R.E.A.C.H. community.
than owning individual lots, property owners own a
membership that allows them to own a home of a certain
size on the land. For this reason, buyers will
most likely not be able to obtain bank financing and
should plan on purchasing using cash. The property
has a home owners association responsible for
maintaining roads and paying taxes and other common area
R.E.A.C.H. is on a steep mountain side and requires a
4 x 4 vehicle for access.
This view shows the home's entrance. The
door leads to the main entrance. The upper level is
accessed through the opening on the right.
The front door leads to this room which
functions as both a mechanical room and a mud room. Here
you find the electrical equipment in the panel at the center of
the picture, and the battery box in the lower right.
The great room combines the living, kitchen and
dining areas. A fireplace in the center supplements heat
on cool evenings and cloudy days. The windows take
in the spectacular views overlooking the Taos and Valdez
The end of this great room functions as the
kitchen area with a gas range and sink. The home also
comes with the washing machine shown at the left.
The back of the great room is carved right into the mountain
side with a rock wall. Stairs lead up to the bedroom.
The loft bedroom sits above the great room and
overlooks it. The skylight at the rear provides light and
The bathroom actually takes water from the
cistern to fill a tub. Here you also see the sink and the
views from this portion of the home.
The home includes this composting toilet.
Here a door leads directly to the outside.
The upper level is not as finished as the rest of the home.
It is accessed from the hillside above the main home.
When finished it could serve as either living or
storage space depending upon how it was completed.
Like the rest of the home, it features great
When finished, this deck of the upper level will offer the
best place to take in the panoramic views both day and night.
