Hi everybody I'm Olivier a french engineer living in Mendoza. I'm beginning the construction of an EarthShip ( Passive house out of the grid) In San Rafael. I designed it from scratch including Reynold's concepts plus few personnal modifications. The site is on the side of the river Atuel.
DIY and building projects
Help with Eco Projects
You will be working meters from the river Atuel, it's a typical Cuyo country side way of life you should discover... And must of all it's an opportunity to learn with us as much as you can on building an Earthship.
Any help from the construction to planting trees. We will begin the construction of the EartShip from scratch this summer, so it begins with preparing a camp and then begin the construction itself.
Camping (tent and sleeping bags can be provided) , the idea is to construct a nice camp with shade, kitchen, toilets. to be able to do the main construction in good conditions.
The site is 17 km South of downtown San Rafael, there few buses (Iselin to Malvinas) but we can pick you up easily. The site is close to "valle grande" where you can practise most of river and climbing sports. We have our own access to this river directly from the site.
