The name 'Sunship' stands for Earthship with focus on solar effectivity and the use of sunny materials. Our top star, the sun, is the force behind biological materials like straw and wood. The sun provides all the energy to build and run a Sunship.
Sunships are well insulated strawbale houses, carried by a wooden framework, using the passive solar architectural pattern and other solar applications. That results in a simple but comfortable home, affordable and healthy for the residents and healing for the planet.
"Sunships are a great step towards a sustainable culture building homes."
Sunships are Do-it-Yourself. The construction is estimated to take between 4 and 8 weeks for 3 persons. It all depends on how exactly you want to realize the concept.
Cost for materials at regular market-prices will be around 20000 dollars/euros.
An estimated price for clever organized materials (regional, natural) is 9000 dollars/euros.
For now lets say: the price for a Sunship is between 7000 and 25000 dollars/euros. More detailed calculations have to take given circumstances into account.
