Earthships are a great way to build if you have good access to old tires...
Not everywhere has the tires needed to construct and Earthship... I know in the town nearest where I am currently building, lack ANY type recycled
sources of materials.
Which means long travel times to get it which start to limit the feasibility.
Another great form of building is Earthbags or the good ole Adobe mud bricks or CEBs.
Great ways of building all contain a great thermal mass for winter heating and summer cooling.
Welcome to the great expanse that is green building.
