An unbeatable eco-lodge, the Phoenix Earthship is a standalone building in the high mountain desert of New Mexico. The building is considered an Earthship—a completely self-sufficient building meant to exemplify the off-grid living experience. Made of repurposed materials, this house is a work of sustainable art.
The Phoenix Earthship is a 5,300 square foot house that can sleep up to 8 people with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a kitchen, and a living room. The beautiful desert getaway even offers an interior jungle for when you want some lush plant life.
Enjoy sustainable living, with a greenhouse, fish pond, and edible garden on site. The house is not lacking in comfort, with a fireplace, WiFi, and Netflix. Only 9 kilometers from Taos regional airport, Phoenix Earthship offers an out-of-this-world experience.
The Phoenix Earthship was built by Michael Reynolds in the mid-2000s. Reynolds used the Earthship model to create an off-grid getaway. The building is made of repurposed materials, designed to allow a four-person family to live completely off-grid. The Earthship offers a greenhouse for food, a pond for water management, and chickens in the yard.
The Phoenix takes reuse and recycling to a new level. All types of old materials are used to form the structure and design of the Earthship. The foundation of the Phoenix uses a rammed-earth tire foundation. Cans and bottles are used as decoration.
The Phoenix offers luxury and comfort with zero fossil fuels. The Earthship is 100% off the grid and low-impact. The design of the building uses passive heating and cooling along with thermal mass principles to have a low energy demand.
Featured on television and Lonely Planet’s lists of eco-lodges, the Phoenix Earthship demonstrates how we can create something new out of the old. The property offers sweeping views of the sage land of northern New Mexico and the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Read more about them here.
