Property details:

8 Happy Trail Earthship Patio

The covered shaded brick patio provides a welcome entrance to the home.  Windows to the east look towards the Sangre de Cristo mountains, while those to the south give the home its passive solar properties.

 

The main door leads to the great room which combines living, dining, and kitchen spaces.  Graywater planters along the window support a lush array of plants and also recycle water.  The door to the right of the kitchen leads to the remainder of the home.

The kiva fireplace gives a cozy focal point to the living section of the great room.  Here you have the elements of earth in the adobe walls, timber in the massive viga ceiling, and the warmth of brick floors. 

The kitchen features a tile backsplash, wooden counters and an island that functions as combination of food preparation area, dining space, and library for holding cookbooks and other reading material. Knotty pine cabinetry provides ample storage.  The painted object on the left of this picture is a SunFrost DC refrigerator/freezer.

8 happy trail earthship back hall

This arched doorway by the kitchen leads to the remainder of the home.  The first couple of doors on the right open to the electrical systems and water pressure tanks while those toward the back provide storage.  The cabinet at the left contains the Water Operations Module (WOM).

8 happy trail earthship laundry area

This open part of the hallway also contains a laundry nook.  The cabinet in this picture conceals the on-demand hot water heater.  The doorway to the right leads to the bathroom.

8 happy trail earthship bathroom

The tiled bath tub gives the bathroom an elegant feel.  The high windows bring in ample light, yet provide privacy.
