“Towards Sustainable and Net Zero Living”
Derek “Deek” Diedricksen visits an Earthship (the architectural brainchild of Michael Reynolds) in Taos, New Mexico. The particular model, like many others, features earth berm air intakes, a water recycling system for its grey water, and the luxury of two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and even a two car garage! Ashley Turin gives us a full out tour of this, one of the newest Earthship builds on the Taos compound. This sustainable and passive solar home just may give you a few ideas for your own future designs.

87(+/-) Acres with the mountains of the Ntl. Forest and state land, this is a hiking and hunting paradise with abundant wildlife and plenty of privacy. The views are unparalleled from every room of this custom home and from the expansive deck.
I install the upper course of logs on the walls of the log cabin and 6″x6″ hemlock timbers to hold the upper floor. The log cabin is taking shape as I complete one log gable end and start the second one. Autumn is setting in, the trees are turning and the animals are on the move with animal tracks all over the trail and deer, sandhill cranes and geese in the fields.
In the second half, I talk about my physical and mental limitations and why you too can build a log cabin or do others things beyond your self imposed limitations. I prepare prime rib and potatoes for dinner on the campfire, sleep on the floor of the log cabin and get up early to go after geese for the freezer.

Secluded 82 +/- acres located at the end of a 1/2 mile private road and nestled among big hardwood trees on a ridge top with a view of the Cumberland River Valley, is this 2 bedroom 1 bath home sitting on 4 cleared acres, the remaining 78 acres being wooded with some marketable timber.
Living in our RV on the road we have stayed with some amazing viewers and this is no exception. This property and home are amazing and show what can be done with skill and original thinking.
