    A friend of mine used to live in an earth ship…I loved that place!
    The layout of her earth ship was amazing.
    The greenhouse area snaked all through her house and provided her with all kinds of really good, fresh produce.
    She lived out in the New Mexico desert where water was scarce, and she did just fine.

    I hope every one can build the way he wants to build and many ideas could come better but our world is desined for those who have only money and the poor one can not even made a house in his country because he needs to buy a land first . so that is why poor peoples pay rent house in every part of the world through their intire life and if this system is changed our world will be easy to live but now there are peoples which they do not ever work but they rent their houses to the poor for living but if they do not have this chance they will work together

    I think it is wonderful, but in reallity we should develop projects for farms, we should bring people to the countryside we have space in the world, we dont need to live in dettached houses, or in high buildings with little room we could live in greener bigger opened areas…

    I have to have watched this a dozen times, as I am planning to build one. I only just realized you failed to include the gray water system and plumbing, in the foundational construction.. bit of a serious omission..

    It took him 40 years to come up with the global modal with a lot of failures his company put it on YouTube with a break down on how to build it. I'm building mine with no drawing an many are also so I suggest if you don't have the money for the drawings get creative there is face book with people who has a tons of how to build. There is a lady who lives in Nebraska is building hers with a guy that works with Mr Reynolds paying him a $100 a day.

    Some thoughts/concerns:
    i. Won't the tires leak toxic chemicals eventually ?
    What about using other less toxic options like straw-bale or earth-rammed bags.

    i. Won't the Plants block the sun from heating the house ?
    I see in the video and computer rendering the plants are over 5 feet tall.
    Tall Plants would prevent the sun rays from heating up the concrete ground and the back wall.

    i. Also I see in net-zero home designs they stress using roofs that overhang about 3 or more feet to block the sun in the summer to help with the cooling,
    Why is that not being used in earth-ship designs ? since both designs have the same goals.

    i. It is hard to believe that this can heat an entire house in the freezing winters of the northern states like Michigan.

    Could one use earthbags instead of tires as they will eventually leak toxic chemical? or does it HAVE to be tires?

    the tires will perish and disintegrate
