Q & A

This page is where, if you are not a facebook user, you can post questions about Earthships in NZ and we will attempt to answer them. The Earthship Facebook Group is our preferred channel for comments and conversations about building earthships in NZ as that way there is a whole lot more people who might be able to answer your questions than just the people that administer this website. 

We would like to hear your feedback about the website and how you think it could be improved.

We just developed a ‘Frequently asked questions” page that will hopefully address most of the general questions that people have about building earthships in NZ.

Feel free to comment on this page with suggestions for good information or links that you think would be useful to have on this site.

From the website admin team – Dana, Liz and Rosa

  2. HI Sam. We will add you to our list of people interested in the Waiheke earthship build. When we have got the building consent we will commence an application process to recruit interns for the build. We will also be posting info on this website and on facebook. There doesn’t appear to be any problem with the info@earthship.co.nz email so not sure wny you had no joy with emailing us. Thanks for getting in touch. Liz

  3. Hi … I’m most interested in earthships and very interested in gathering all info required to build ourselves an earthship. Would you be able to give me a ball park figure of likely cost (either per m2 or a total figure to build an earthship of approx 120m2 for a comfortable stylish build.

    Many thanks … David

  4. Hi Anna. The news and events page on the website has updates on the Waiheke earthship project and if you subscribe to the mailing list any updates posted on the website will be sent in an email to you at the end of each month. The timing of the Waiheke earthship build is uncertain at this point as we are still waiting on plans from architects. We will post a fuller update shortly.

  5. Hi I have jointed to the email list but I haven’t received any confirmation to my address. Maybe is to soon, but just to check if I am part of it…. Can’t wait to get News about it!!! :) Cheers

  6. Hello,

    I would like to have an earth ship built in NZ.
    I don’t want to build it myself but would like to pay someone else to build it for me.
    Are there companies offering this?
