A house made out of old tires


An exterior (example)


The primary building material is old tires and 270 tons of dirt. Old tires make a good building block. Each tire is filled with dirt that has been dampened with water and layered like block going up. Each tire weighs around 250 pounds when filled with dirt. It is very labor intensive filling each tire with dirt and packing it down with a 10 pound sledge hammer.

An interior (example)


Used automobile tires are easy to get. You can go to any tire shop and get them. They are very happy to get them off their hands. They usually have to pay to take them away, so you could make a little money removing the tires for them. They usually have to pay two to five dollars for each tire to be removed. If you take two thousand tires for your building project you will have made 4000 dollars at 2 dollars a tire.

Not bad!
