Eco Casa : Ocean View Green Home in Baja

Welcome to the Eco Casa! Styled after the Earthship design by Michael Reynolds of Taos, New Mexico. Just a few miles south of Rosarito, Mexico, this amazing ultra green home was built mostly from recycled / re-used & natural local materials. Enjoy sweeping panoramic unobstructable ocean views all day long! Featured in the Union Tribune in 2015, this spectacular home was conceived & built with sustainability at the forefront. Colorful & vibrant with exceptional natural light, this home has a large kitchen which is open to the dining & living areas that become one open entertaining area. The home was designed lengthwise along the coast to optimize ocean views from every room. Custom tile work & artistic design features built in throughout. The bedrooms are on the south side of the home and both enjoy ocean views with the master having sit down views. The quarter acre lot has room to build more homes on the lot with permits per seller.

As a green home expert, I’ve seen some fancy new construction homes deemed LEED platinum and even some really amazing, yet humble, straw bale homes at 30% above Title 24 standards, but this one takes the cake. The walls and foundations are made using tires that were diverted from the landfill. They are filled with local dirt, bricks, concrete and spackle made locally. You can notice the re-used materials on artistic display, such as all the glass bottles (that also bring in light) or the bottle caps or corks. The chandelier has a story to tell, too…. It took years of hard work, ingenuity and belief to build this home. There’s no LEED rating here and there’s no need. here’s the UT article if you’d like to read a bit about the owner and architect:
