The Earthship project in Capurgana, on the Caribbean coast, is nearing completion after a month-long effort by Michael Reynolds, a small experienced team and an international group of workshop attendees. The small unit on a steep hill facing the water was built as part of a larger planned project to create an Earthship Village Ecologies site and area for sustainable testing. The site is inaccessible by vehicle so all materials were hauled up the hill by people and burros. The vigas for the roof beams were harvested locally and the cooling tubes were built in place. A follow-up visit is already being discussed.
