Michael Reynolds is an architect who has accomplished something incredible: to build extremely cheap unique houses, here’s what he uses and how he does it!
The raw material consists of: tires filled with earth and walls built of bottles and empty cans, everything is thus made from recycled materials. Hard to believe, but such a home really exists. The most attractive is its cost: from $ 7,500 and up. The architect was considered crazy, but he proved the opposite to everyone.
At present houses made in his method have been made on all continents. Together with his team, he develops projects for each new home, taking into account the maximum topography, climate, and many other factors. Detailed sketches are sent to the customer. On this occasion, the house can be built by those who have no qualification in the field, according to Perfect Media.
But that’s not all, here are the other benefits of this type of house that was called “Ark of the Earth”: it has an autonomous system for producing electricity using solar panels and wind turbines, it has its own water system ( rainwater and snow are filtered), the house also has a built-in greenhouse, which makes it food on its own.
Here are some pictures of this project that will hopefully soon become the future…
