It all started in March 2012 in an Earthship near Taos, in the desert of New Mexico. Many weeks had gone by since I arrived to complete the training of the Earthship Academy, a course on ecological, sustainable and autonomous houses invented by Michael Reynolds. During the lectures, I learned that Earthships did not need to be heated to maintain a stable indoor temperature yearlong despite extreme temperature variations. Often, one has to experience it to really believe it and it's on a cold night that I got up and looked out the window, what I realized astounded me: WOW! How shocked I was when I realized it was -12 °C (10 °F) outside and inside it was 18°C (64°F)! It is important to mention that, at the time, this Earthship was: first of all, under renovation; secondly, due to the limited budget, it was poorly isolated and; finally, it had not been heated for several months! In spite of all this, we felt warm and comfortable in our Earthship. It was great!
