A Self-Sufficient Farmhouse With a Sheep-Pasture Roof | sustainable architecture | Scoop.it

Architect Jesse Thompson of Kaplan Thompson Architects recalls they were approached by their clients with a simple request: “We want a house where our sheep can graze on our roof.”

Earthship Farmstead, as the home is called, “is a riff on the earth-sheltered Earthship homes of the ’70s,” Thompson explains. “Off the grid, natural materials, that sort of thing. This is akin to that but much higher-end finished.”
