The Tire House Book by Ed Paschich and Paula Hendricks. What are tire houses? Who builds them? How do they do it? Will I see the tires when the house is finished? How weird are they? Can I do it myself? You'll find the answers to these questions and more in this American book that Earth Quarterly called '...an excellent addition to the library of any potential tire house builder, offering a wealth of unique ideas that can jump-start you to getting up, getting out, and building that sucker. And the Albuquerque Journal said: 'Better keep this one on the night table; you'll probably want to refer to it as you build a home or an addition to one.' Using 'landfill' tires and a revolutionary process, houses are being built that are both revolutionary and evolutionary--Michael Reynolds builds self-sufficient Earthships(TM), and Ed Paschich builds traditional homes using tires for the exterior walls. This book will tell you how you can be more responsible when you build a home, improve a home, or add a garden. You'll learn about constructed wetlands, solar air conditioning, and xeriscape landscaping. It's all here with many illustrations and photographs. Chapters are;
Evolutionary housing
Tire houses foundations floors ceilings and roofs
Tire houses walls
Tire houses utilities
T.R.E.E. Home updates
Alternative design
Interviews with tire house owners
Michael Reynolds and Earthships
