Earthships - An Eco-Friendly Home Solution

        Did you ever think you could live in a house of trash?  Well, you can live in a house made from recycled materials like cans, bottles, and old tires, anything that could make a wall or foundation.  These earthships are very eco-friendly and can use their own electricity, from stored up energy from solar panels and wind turbines installed on the roof, house or lawn.

        These buildings are very architecturally unique and very durable and sustainable.  And the earthships aren't just a house.  They are designed to also provide a way to grow some plants or vegetables in their green house like areas built off the home.  Take a look at one of these creative earthships and a floor plan (below).
