He shares his knowledge and lessons learned about natural building and living self-sufficiently.

In his own words (borrowed from their Homesteaders Co-op store):
The magical tale of a man who self built his self sufficient luxurious earthship home with no experience or training.
If you are thinking about one day building your own eco-home or want to live off-grid and be self-sufficient, then this book is written for you! Welcome to the start of this journey and sharing.
This Book is about many things. It is a fantastic learning opportunity as I explain the most important concepts and ideas you need to know so you can understand how Earthship Biotecture works, and how Earthships are able to perform so well with little to no maintenance or bills. I also cover the thoughts and considerations that I had to make whilst building Earthship Karuna; including the technical aspects of building with my own pictures and of course many wonderful stories!
I share what I have learned through my own experiences of eco-building. I have learned a lot during my first and subsequent builds and will offer you my best advice and ideas for you to be able to fulfil your eco-building dreams. Anyone who has embarked on the journey of self-building will know that it is a long and often challenging journey. Whilst it may not be easy, it has taken me on a new path that has gifted me with so many things, not least real security and a truly comfortable home and lifestyle for a lifetime!
As this story unfolds, you will come to know that living in an Earthship or self-sufficient home is about many things. It is not just an ethical choice or a building type choice, it is also a lifestyle choice. When you start to live off-grid, and self-sufficiently, you embark on a break out from the matrix/zeitgeist. You start to unplug yourself from the normal, dependent, vulnerable, and highly controlled way of life that many people are used to in cities and highly developed countries. When you are truly self-sufficient and out of debt you take away some of the main sources of stress: buying food, paying the bills, covering the mortgage or rent, and needing to work full-time to allow this to continue. We can also look at environmental issues and great need to build smarter and in a more connected way, especially in the face of climate change. Our global population is rising and with it the poverty level and inequality of wealth in all forms. To compound this issue, the cost of living is also hurtling up! We are moving toward a very unsafe and unsustainable future if we continue to build and live in the same way that we have been doing.
