Where We Live

My buddy Chris planted a bug in my ear about "earthship" a couple of weeks ago and since then, I've been thinking alot about where we live and how we build. Check out the above pic, yeah, those are tires. Earthships are built from rammed earth stacked tires. Pretty nuts. In the good ol' US of A, we live in sprawling suburbs in houses that insulate us from the natural environment. And hey, that works for most folks. I'm a happy home owner, but I still think outside the box about the house I want to spend the rest of my life in, and it would be pretty satisfying to spend it in a home I built myself.
Here is a link to a pretty interesting web site about a couple that built their own home. It is amazing stuff.
