Justin Dudley is an off-the-grid, desert-dwelling freelance builder with a passion for all things alternative, sustainable and natural - including but not limited to architecture. After learning conventional construction and completing renewable energy training, Justin began a 5 year stint building and teaching around the world with Earthship Biotecture, combining not only his construction experience and sustainable inclinations, but the also the artistic side of architecture. This also led to the creation of his own earthship-esque abode in the high deserts of New Mexico.
In recent years he set out on his own continuing to travel, build, and specifically facilitate workshops in both hemispheres sharing not only Earthship techniques, but also earthbag/superadobe, cob, strawbale, slipstraw, carpentry, mobile tiny home construction, and now treehouses.
His passion for building in workshop settings is driven by the desire to empower all walks of life with fundamental skills and knowledge which allow more self-reliant, minimal-impact, holistic lifestyles. Using alternative architecture as the catalyst, Justin is always encouraging peripheral skill-sharing in permaculture, health, communication, off-grid living, community-based lifestyles and everything in between.
