Beautiful Innovative Earthship Home.


Three-bedroom Earthship home in Ontario, Canada.

The house was built with recycled tires. It has a massive 10 kW solar power system.

It collects and stores rainwater for flushing the toilets.It recycles greywater through the indoor gardens and it has a wood-fired boiler for the in-floor radiant heating system.


The other thing that is massive in here that's cement is thr buttresses so these buttresses are put in about every 15 to 20 feet and they are a support piece that is holding the earth back. So when I talk about charging a thermal mass, basically it is like charging a battery.

The thing that hooks a lot of people is the fact that they think"Oh, it's a cheap way to build" because you're recycling all these things.It can be cheap.It can be done cheap, but it also takes a lot of labour.
