Earthships are WAY too expensive for most of us, 15 August 2011
Author: packoftwenty from United Kingdom

The first part of this film shows the huge amount of wood, and manpower, that is being used to build an Earthship. Just look at the cost of Earthships, and you'll see that they cannot be the solution to the problems they claim to solve.

Strawbale houses can be built for £10,000 (Google "£10,000 Strawbale House") - Brian Stinchcombe built such a house in the 1990s, and of course, the local planning officers had to put a stop to it, because their rich building industry friends, (who would never give them bribes of course), couldn't allow the rest of the population to see that you could build a house for only £10,000, and a super insulated, super quiet, super eco-friendly strawbale one at that.

When are we going to see a film about Brian Stinchcombe's £10,000 strawbale house, or any other £10,000 strawbale house? Earthships use the most labour intensive (and stupid) form of construction possible - tyres rammed with earth.
