Gage County Woman Building ‘Earthship’ Home

ADAMS, NE – Cathy Krueger is taking independence to another level.

The Gage County woman is constructing what she believes is the first “earthship” in Nebraska. Earthships are a type of house that operates “off-the-grid” and provides all necessary human needs. Krueger’s is built into a hill overlooking a private lake on her property.

Krueger has used volunteers and help from her family to construct the radical house. According to the Omaha World-Herald, she hopes to have the exterior of the house completed by winter.
