|bottle house in rhyolite|
i remember back in the 70's or maybe the 80's, the actor dennis weaver made a rammed earth house, or earthships, as they are called, that used old tires and cans too, i believe. remember dennis weaver? i used to love, love, love his old tv show, "mccloud". i think his house was in colorado, and remember seeing something on tv long ago, showing him building it himself. pretty cool concept, don't you think? if we could build our homes, out of the stuff we are throwing away that is cluttering up our poor planet, wouldn't that be wonderful? and then we would also be surrounded by these beautiful, sculptural homes, too!
