Flintstones Meet The Flintstones

Now this is a seriously interesting place. It's a community called Earthship, just a little west of Taos. It's a community of a hundred or so, partially underground houses. The houses are all 100% self sufficient. They don't rely on any public utilities. They are covered with solar panels and windmills. They create their own power, water, treat their own sewage. Most of the houses have a greenhouse, so they even grow all their own food. The houses are built mostly out of recycled materials (junk) Bottles, cans, tires, and other junk, held together with concrete. All the dark round spots on this building are bottles.
