|Finished Earthship entrance|
One of Mia's friends text her asking if she had seen the Earthships near Taos. Mia had no idea what that was so we found out it was a type of house and off on another adventure we went.

Earthships are a sustainable building, orginally designed by Michael Reynolds. They are built using a method called Biotecture. Earthships are built in such a way there are no utility bills, and can have modern amenities if you want.
Straight from their website:
They can even help you make your current home more earth friendly by retrofitting with Earth systems.
The Earthships are unusual looking homes but also very beautiful and peaceful to be in and around. The walls are made of tires, cans, bottles. The homes can be built as big or as small as you need. The systems are set up for what you need and want.
