Recently I wrote an article asking my readers if they would live in an Earth House, and the success was huge, all of them liked the idea. So today I will show you more brilliant ideas of houses made from earth from around the world.
Earthships are ecological houses build mostly from old tires or other recycled waste, built on the earth for the purpose of living “off the grid.”
They are using solar and geothermal energy which allows the home to be heated without gas. What is amazing is that many people who live in earthships say they pay anywhere from $0 to $100 per year for utilities. It even recycles rain water.
When is winter outside, the sun’s low rays hits the tire wall and the heat slowly permeates throughout the house.
Electricity needs can be generated from the installed solar panels.

Although there are typical, straight earthship designs, there have been many more built around the world using intricate and beautiful designs.
Most of people think that houses made of earth are dirty and they sacrifice a lot of comfort by living in one but as you can see from the pictures, that’s just not true.
We need to stop building energy-intensive houses that affect the Earth and start moving into a greener space.
