It’s been a while since we’ve featured an Earthship home here, and it’s so exciting to see yet another version of these incredible, innovative, and eco-friendly homes built primarily with tires and packed dirt. Amy fell in love with the concept after volunteering to build a school out of sand-packed soda bottles and learning more about alternative building methods.
She took a hands-on course in New Mexico and then brought her skills back to Australia, where she teamed up with Martin Freney of Earthship Eco Homes — and many friends and volunteers — to build her very own 1,400-square-foot dwelling. While not “tiny,” her small home shows how trash can literally become treasure in the form of a warm and inviting home.

Off-Grid Sustainable Home Built w/ Tires!
This is Taylor & Steph’s Incredible 560 Sq. Ft. Earthship Home in the mountains of Santa Cruz, California.
The couple built their home out of recycled materials in a way that’s sustainable and good for the environment. They had no construction skills, lived off-grid for a long time and managed to do it with less than $10,000. They’ve even shared their journey and explained the concept of Earthship Homes via a photo book. So they started a Kickstarter campaign to help raise the funds for printing. Be sure to head over there, watch their inspirational video, and consider getting your own copy of “Nomadic Roots.” which is now available on Amazon (affiliate link).
