Earthship, beam me up!


Beautiful, self-sustaining (off the grid), sustainable, earth-friendly, 
beautiful, HANDMADE, unconventional, beautiful...
Did I say beautiful?

Earthship in Taos, New Mexico) 

Made with discarded tires, drink cans, glass bottles, 
and honest-to-goodness earth,
these are dwellings of the future (I hope),
inspired by the past.

This is re-purposing at it's best and
I really, really want to live in one.

Full disclosure:  I would also like to build it.
(DaddyBoy, are you listening?)

Here's a little about earthships.  Even the name is heavenly :)

YouTube has lots more on them...
