Brand new studio Earthship as seen on Off Grid Build! Just search for "Off The Grid Build" to find it. Experience Off Grid living with all the modern amenities in the beautiful high desert mesa just outside Taos, NM.

The space

I recently finished building this house myself over the past 3 years. It is 99% complete. There are a few finishing touches that are not done but the house is 100% comfortable and 100% livable.

This house is called an Earthship, a totally off grid house that catches its own rain water, generates its own electricity and stays at a steady 72 degrees all year round without the use of any fuel or electricity what-so-ever!

Don't let the term "Off Grid" fool you, this house has all the modern amenities. WiFi, Netflix with a flat screen tv and Bluray player, large refrigerator, large oven/range with a powerful exhaust hood, large bathroom with a luxuriously deep tub and stone all around. There is even a high efficiency washing machine in case you need to do laundry.

The sun heats the house passively, but don't worry, you can still sleep in after a late light with black out shades that let you control when the sun illuminates this beautiful space.

Interaction with guests

Guests will be met by the host and given a tour of the house. Information will be given on how to live in an off grid Earthship so that your stay will be easy and fun! There is even a Youtube video that explains all the functions of the house.

Other things to note

Dogs are permitted with an extra $25 fee per dog. That one time fee is for your entire stay no matter how long. There is one queen size bed that sleeps 2 and a super comfortable thick, memory foam full sized futon mattress we set up on the floor that sleeps an additional 2 guests. Additional adult guests are $15/night each. Kids are free. 4 guest max.

Please no smoking inside the house and keep dogs off the bed.

I cannot say enough good things about our stay in the earthship. It was a great experience. The area and location were perfect for more activities than we could possibly accomplish in a week. While we didn't get to meet Dan, his caretaker Marquita was great and always available for information. If you've never been to the Southwest, I highly recommend you make your first visit to the area by staying in this unique home. You won't regret it.

Dan's place is a great place to stay. It was clean and convenient. There was enough supplies for someone to cook, do laundry, take showers, and so on. The location was awesome. Communication with Dan and Marquita was prompt and efficient. I highly recommend Dan's place to anyone.

Dan's place is so unique! My wife and I had never stayed in an earthship and it was an amazing experience! The neighborhood is quiet and secluded with beautiful views of the mountains and stars at night. The house is fully stocked with everything you need. Great experience, highly recommend!

Our stay at Dans place was wonderful. The space is beautiful and calming and the smell of garden area when you walk in was amazing!

Dan's place is amazing! Not only is it a beautiful house, but getting to see first-hand an earthship off-the-grid home is an intriguing experience. Super quiet, super clean, just a lovely place!

Our stay was fantastic. The home was amazing and it fulfilled a dream of staying in an Earthship. It was breathtaking watching the stars at night out of the large windows in the front of the home and seeing a storm pass by. We were met by Zac who was flexible with us when we arrived later than we originally planned and who explained the home in detail to us. The only downside is that you'll probably leave wanting to build your own Earthship.

Hi! My name is Dan and I built an Earthship in Taos, NM with my bare hands. The entire project is documented on my Website and on

I love to travel around the world, grow my own food, and build furniture and houses. Currently I'm a sawyer in Brooklyn, NY. That's right, I own a business that saws lumber from fallen New York City trees.

I love the time I get to spend at my home in Taos, but when I'm not there it's available for all of you to enjoy it as well!
