Get off the Grid: See the Three Bedroom Earthship in Glade Park
This three-bedroom Earthship in Glade Park is the ultimate way to get off the grid. The Colorado National Monument is basically this Earthship's backyard.
On 35 acres in Glade Park sits a custom Earthship. I know what you're thinking, despite the name, we're not ready for blast off, it's an Earthship, not the mother ship. An Earthship is passive solar house (this house has passive and active solar power) made out of recycled material and is literally off the grid, as in, the power grid.
There are three bedrooms, one bathroom with a walk-in shower, which could at least fit two people and two kiva fireplaces. A kiva fireplace is an indoor, or outdoor, fireplace inspired by southwestern Pueblo architecture.
There are colorful glass accents, tile and stained concrete floors, and a detached garage for a workshop, studio or a green room. It's hard to say which one is more spectacular, the interior or the exterior.
This Glade Park Earthship is on 35 acres and the Colorado National Monument is basically your backyard. There's a firepit in the backyard with endless views surrounding you. Also, your privacy is endless, there are no neighbors in sight. You can go off the grid in more ways than one at this place.
