The Earthship comes with a private toilet. A large passive cooling heat escape in the top of this structure, accompanied with 3 foot thick walls keeps this hobbit-like home at a nice temperature.
The Earthship living space was built at Haiti Communitere in response to the 2010 earthquake. Its a demonstration for how homes can be built from waste like tires, plastic bottles, and rubble from the earthquake. The base of the Earthship is made with tires stacked seven high within the walls.
Rates: $55 for one person/ $75 for two people
The Super Adobe House
The Super Adobe has a double bed, desk, fan and mosquito net. The earth bag construction uses long fabric bats or tubes filled with adobe, a mixture of 90% earth and 10% cement. The bags and tubes are layered together with barbed wire which acts as a mortar. Structural design mixes modern engineering with ancient earth architecture. This structure resists earthquakes, hurricanes and floods.

Give Love Containers
The Give Love & Give More Love converted shipping containers have a total of eight bunk beds. They’re a great option for four to eight people. Their open design keeps them cool, while a picnic table between the two containers offers great hangout or meeting space. Large sections of the shipping container wall were cut out and replaced with artful metal windows for increased ventilation.

The Ubuntu House is a six-bed dormitory with fans and mosquito nets and lockers. The house is constructed from “ubuntu blocks” made out of polystyrene trash. Ubuntu block houses can use about one 40-foot shipping container’s worth of styrofoam. The styrofoam is collected, crushed and bleached before it is put into rice sacks to make the blocks. The final structure is light-weight and flexible making it highly resistant to earthquakes and less dangerous if it does collapse. Haiti Communitere’s is very well-insulated and is cool and fresh throughout the day while retaining warmth at night. It is a cozy option for groups or individuals.

The Geodome is our budget option and contains a total of eight bunk beds and individual lockers, mosquito nets and fans.

With minimal materials required, 100 domes (9.1 meter/ 30-foot diameter) can fit into a single shipping container.
