Thinking About Building an Off Grid Terraced Hill Home?

How to Live Off the Grid in a Terraced Hill Home

More complicated and probably a lot more expensive than most options, building a home on a terraced hillside would work well with Earthships and/or Container Homes. Things to keep in mind include steel supports drilled deep into the hillside so that everything stays in place. Each terrace should slope slightly backwards for rainwater harvesting and lined with 4’ x 4’ x 16’ Gabion baskets. See the pics featuring different landscaping features such as gardens, flowers, vineyards and fruit trees.
