We're not sure of the exact number but probably 5-10 for sure and then there are structures that incorporate and borrow Earthship design but aren't truly an Earthship by definition.

Good Question!  To the best of my knowledge.  The only one the will be permitted is the one we are building.  I have heard rumors of a couple of them in Eastern Wa.  But they are under the radar.  Please help us to gather funds for our building plans.  Informative video on this fundly page.

My husband and I built an Earthship in the Methow Valley (pulled a permit), back in 1991, it's an old fashion design.   There is one more I know of in the Methow that is a few years younger than ours and pretty remote, that one's for sale right now as far as I know.   Ours will most likely be for sale at the end of next year because we are getting pretty old for keeping up with all the homesteading chores that exist when you live a self sufficient rural lifestyle.  We do have a lot of hands on, reality based experience and are open to answering questions and engaging with those who are interested in developing a more sustainable and simple life.

..... thank you for caring about the well being of our society and this beautiful planet....

I'd like to know how I can pull a permit for one in Cowlitz County? Plan on relocating there soon. Be interested in doing a modified or a full one if the code allows.

Hey there, any luck on the Cowlitz build? I've been working to find if anyone is building Washington as I live here and want to help others outs if there are opportunities to do so.
