The Benefits of Living in an Earthship Home


Some unbelievable pictures of earthships, houses designed to be sustainable. I’d rather live in one of these than a mansion.

From Housely:

  • Earthship homes are 100-percent sustainable homes that are inexpensive to construct and

    Horseshoe-shaped to maximize the amount of natural light and solar gains during the colder months.

    Windows face the sun.

    The walls are thick and dense due to the tires in them (yes, tires) to provide thermal mass that regulates the interior temperature naturally.

    The top of the tire walls contain can and concrete bond beams that are constructed from recycled cans and bonded by concrete.
