About This Show

Renegade architect and ultimate survivalist Michael Reynolds doesn't just live off the grid, he builds off the grid, constructing totally self-sufficient houses he calls Earthships. With a deadline of four weeks, a team of builders and 50 interns, he'll take a completely open piece of land in Big Sky, Montana and transform it into a custom-built Earthship, battling Mother Nature along the way.
