Candy’s Earthship

admin Sustainability

Candy’s earthship at Narara Ecovillage (the first approved on the Central Coast) was designed by Australian earthship guru, Martin Freney of

It’s a two-bedroom design for a small suburban block of land only 15m in the north south direction, and addresses principles of human needs:

  • Thermo-solar heating and cooling
  • Solar electricity
  • Composting toilet
  • Building with natural and recycled materials
  • Water harvesting and long term storage
  • Thermal mass and natural cross-ventilation to regulate indoor temperature
  • Internal food production capability
  • The design is intentionally uncomplicated and single-story, so that people with little building knowledge can construct them.
