I read about these in Taunton's Inspired House recently. If I had a lot of money and lived in Arizona or New Mexico, I would totally do this for my kids.
What is an Econest?
For most of us our home is our center. It should be a sanctuary that nurtures body, mind, and spirit. Sadly, standard homes today are built with little regard for our health or the environment. There are better ways to build. The Econest is our simple solution. Health, ecology, and sustainability begin at home in an Econest. Building such a home, with friendly natural materials, fosters the innate builder in all of us. For those of you longing for this true experience of home - we invite you to join us in the creation of our next Econest. Discover for yourself the joys of building a home in harmony with nature.
