Earthship Progress Update!

Long time no blog! Fred is here to update all of our followers and supporters on our Earthship progress. 2010 was a very busy year for the farm and the Prell family, including a 34 day trip out West in the middle of the Summer. Mike and Kym returned from their incredible journey with a renewed spirit and quickly got back to work on the Earthship. Much progress was made due to countless hardworking hours and the help of several enthusiastic volunteers. Friends, family and strangers alike all came out to Peaceful Acres on hot summer days to help us get dirty and to become a part of the construction of Clinton County’s first ever Earthship.

From summer to fall, we completed the following projects on the ship:
Completed the roof (including 3 skylights!)
Cobbed all interior walls (lotta dirt, lotta mud!)
Laid out Plumbing
Laid out new Addition (will be constructing a straw bale addition connected to earthship for wellness studio/workshop space)
Started Utility Room Tire Wall (Just 100 more tires to pack!)
Poured concrete footers

Thanks to John Cropper of the Wilmington News Journal for doing an awesome video on our project.

2011 is slated to be an incredibly busy and exciting year for Peaceful Acres. I hope you can join us in realizing this awesome vision! Stay tuned for more updates and announcements!
