Jordan shares great tips and advice on how to build a stunning earthship-style home using recycled tires, and earthen cob made from clay, sand and straw. He built his with a ton of help from his girlfriend and friends.

The green home measures between 800-900 square feet, collects rainwater, treats it’s own waste water, heats and cools itself (although there is a wood stove for extra cold nights in the winter), and will soon have solar panels.
The interior design was decorated with local and reclaimed materials like recycled granite for the countertops, a CD mosaic backsplash, PEI sandstone floor, recycled bottles in the walls, and more.
An Earthship is the ultimate green building because it heats and cools itself with a passive solar design and strategic thermal mass to store heat like a battery, it has space to grow food indoors, collects and treats rain water, and more.
We filmed this whole video with a 50mm camera lens because we broke the 16mm lens trying to take a photo on a windy point beside a lighthouse.
This PEI Earthship in Wellington, PEI is available for rent on Airbnb:
