House Built from Tires Part Two- (and TEN other recycled uses for them)

WHAT ABOUT OTHER USES FOR OLD TIRES?

In Anytown, USA (or worldwide) you'll find more free tires than you'll know what to do with. Just ask any autobody or tire place- they'll be THRILLED to give them to you as they have to PAY for their disposal in most cases.
     Yes, most have seen the famous "Earthships" in Taos, New Mexico that Michael Reynolds has developed and messed with for decades (a smaller version is in the first two shots below), but what about OTHER USES FOR OLD TIRES??? ("Garbage Warrior", The Earthship Documentary is great if you haven't seen it before- I linked it below).
     Anyway, check some of these ideas out, and if YOU have any, please add them to the comments below!















WHAT WOULD YOU DO?
THE SUPPLY IS ALMOST ENDLESS- AND FREE!


Again, one of my ideas for small shelters, tiny homes, and structures in general, is to use tires as a floating pad of sorts, as a support platform (when placed at corners or strategically underneath). Once compressed under the weight of the cabin, these won't shift much, if at all. Another idea involved concrete-filled, pre-bolt-inserted tires as attachment points for swamp-land walkways. I even briefly talk about stacked-tire stairways....a link for the NEW "Humble Homes, Simple Shacks" is right below.... only $11.53 with free shipping in some cases. Thanks!

  1. This is great. The idea of so many old tires being available for building materials is something I'd never thought of.

    I remember when I was in the Air Force we had running tracks made of ground up and compressed tires. It makes me wonder if that same ground up material would make for good material to build the walls of homes with.
