How to Build an Earthship: Step-by-Step Slideshow (Video)

Taking us right from the tire dump and breaking ground, through laying the first course of tires and installing gray water recycling, rainwater catchment and black water treatment, all the way through to applying insulation, solar panels and mud finishes on the interior walls, this video will undoubtedly be a useful resource for anyone wanting to build their own earthship. The lack of commentary means that it is occasionally hard to get the context of what is being done and why, but with the amount that has been written about earthships, it's kind of nice to get a bare-bones walk through of the process without too much noise to distract you. It's definitely an incredible reminder that one person's trash is another person's treasure.

Interesting example of recycling, that...

But they sure expended a lot of energy there, to construct a building that doesn't look all that big when everything was 'done and dusted'..

I would rather get the same results with half the cost and expenditure of resources,  and invest the difference somewhere else (e.g. an extra shed, stables, or similar..).

Why spend more than you have to  ?
