An '''Earthship''' is a type of passive solar+ house that is made of both natural and recycled materials (such as earth-packed tires+), designed and marketed by '''Earthship Biotecture''' of Taos, New Mexico+.
Earthships are intended to be "off-the-grid+ ready" homes, with minimal reliance on both public utilities+ and fossil fuels+. Eventually, Reynolds' vision took the form of the common U-shaped earth-filled tire homes seen today.
The buildings are often horseshoe-shaped to maximize natural light and solar-gain during winter months, with windows on sun-facing walls admitting light and heat. On top of the tire walls are either "can and concrete bond beams" made of recycled cans joined by concrete, or wooden bond beams with wooden shoes.
Internal, non-load-bearing walls are often made of a honeycomb+ of recycled cans joined by concrete and are referred to as tin can wall+s. The roof is made using trusses, or wooden support beams called vigas+, that rest on the wooden shoes or the tin can walls placed on the bond beams. Earthships are designed to catch and use water from the local environment without bringing in water from a centralized source. Water collected in this fashion is used for every household activity except flushing toilets. Greywater+, used water that is unsuitable for drinking, is used within the Earthship primarily for flushing toilets.
Water from the low end of the botanical cell is then directed through a peat moss+ filter and collected in a reservoir or well.
Black water+, water that has been used in a toilet, is sent to a solar-enhanced septic tank, referred to as "the incubator", that utilizes anaerobic digestion+. In cases where it is not possible to use flush-toilets operating on water, dry solar toilets are recommended. In an Earthship, a Power Organizing Module is used to take a proportion of stored energy from batteries and invert+ it for AC use. Earthships rely on a balance between the solar heat gain and the ability of the tire walls and subsoil to transport and store heat. The second earthship in South Africa is a recycling centre in Khayelitsha run as a swop shop concept. In 2000, Michael Reynolds+ and his team came to build the first residential earthship in Boingt (Belgium).
In 2004, the very first Earthship in the UK was opened at Kinghorn+ Loch in Fife, Scotland. In 2007, CLEVEL and Earthship Biotecture obtained full planning permission to build on a development site overlooking the Brighton Marina+ in the UK. The first official Earthship home in mainland Europe with official planning permission approval was built in a small French village called Ger.
Further adaptation to the European context was undertaken by Daren Howarth and Adrianne Nortje in Brittany+, France. Meanwhile, earthships have been built or are being built in Portugal, Spain, France, Belgium, The Netherlands, United Kingdom, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Estonia and Czech Republic. The first official earthship district (23 earthships) in Europe is currently being developed in Olst+ (the Netherlands).
The Earthships built in Europe by Michael Reynolds+ aren't always performing as promised and some show problems with moisture and mould. The first Earthship in South America+ was built in January 2015 in the town of Ushuaia+, Patagonia+ (Argentina+). An earthship is currently (2015) under construction by the Aitkinson family in southern Belize+. Earthship+ An Earthship is a type of passive solar house that is made of both natural and recycled materials (such as earth-packed tires), designed and marketed by Earthship Biotecture of Taos, New Mexico. Anyway, the gentleman involved seems to be doing a heck of a job on this, doing it all himself. Looking at the Atkins website, they are now offering many of the unique parts for a single rotor 13B engine from stock. Yes, Richard Sohn (the guy you are talking about) has been at this for many years, attacking each problem as it arises.
I like the idea of lightened iron rotors rather than aluminum ones because of the thermal expansion relationship between the two metals. Weird that there was no contact info on the site except for the email address and I have not got any response from that yet. I have noticed that one can get RX-8 motors for about $1700 on ebay now and the Honda Fit motors for about $850. As it happens, Richard Sohn's plane briefly took off for the first time today under the power of his single rotor engine. Keith, Richard frequents Paul Lamar's online Aircraft Rotary Engine Newsletter email list, you could sign up there (here's how).
While Richard's web site is a bit out of date, he's been doing a lot of work on this project for many years. Comment: A single rotor engine based on the 13B may turn out to be a fine airplane powerplant, and might reliably put out better power-per-pound than any 4-stroke recip. Yes, the RX7s engines are very smooth--some people liken them to electric motors in this regard.
For builders going the normally aspirated route--many are modifying the engines for peripheral porting instead of the Mazda-standard side ports.
To the project in the original post: Richard Sohn's one-rotor engine development continues. The modern smokehouse has made smoking easy and efficient with remote thermometers, gas fired burners, and compressed wood pucks.
I started at a very young age in the back yard with an old homemade wooden smoker and a pile of alder wood. When it came time to replace my old worn out smoker with a new model I found that I favored to do things much like I had done them growing up.

Dakota00 - They are 16"x10' residential aluminum soffit panels that I bought at Home Depot for about $15 each. You want to start from the back and work forward so you don't see the joints from the front (like vinyl siding).


I couldn't tell from your pictures, but did you use J-channel at the ends of the ceiling panels, and at the tops of the walls, or just the top of the walls?
Metal panel liner, which is the same profile as pole barn steel just a lighter gauge, is rated to be attached every 4' with x lbs of insulation on top without sagging. So I have been concerned that maybe part of that $6500 option was thicker purlins to support the weight. You can get the metal strapping from a building supply, drop ceiling or sheetrock supply place. What are the drawbacks to building a pickup truck camper shell, rather than a slide-in, as a cabover ? Earthships are constructed to use available natural resources, especially energy from the sun. The thick and dense walls provide thermal mass that naturally regulates the interior temperature during both cold and hot outside temperatures. One member of the team shovels dirt, which usually comes from the building site, and places it into the tire one scoop at a time. These are attached to the tire walls using concrete anchors, poured blocks of concrete located inside the top tires. The roof as well as the north, east and west facing walls are heavily insulated to prevent heat loss.
The water used for flushing toilets is what is known as greywater+ and has been used at least once already. This reclaimed water is then passed once more through a greywater board and used to flush conventional toilets. The solar-enhanced septic tank is a regular septic tank+ which is heated by the sun and glazed with an equator-facing window. The Power Organizing Module is a prefabricated system provided by Earthship Biotecture that is simply attached to a wall on the interior of the Earthship and wired in a conventional manner. They are designed to use the properties of thermal mass and with the intent that the exterior earth-rammed tire walls provide thermal mass+ that will soak up heat during the day and radiate heat during the night, keeping the interior climate relatively comfortable all day.
Large front windows with integrated shades+, trombe wall+s and other technologies such as skylights+ or Steve Baer+'s "Track Rack" solar trackers are used for heat regulation.
It consists of cooler air coming in from a front "hopper" window and flowing out through one of the skylights. This earthship is based on the global earthship model and is built with a foundation of tyres, has roof bearing walls built with earthbags, and interior walls built with cob, cans and plastic bottles. While water, power module, solar panels and the team were on their way to Europe, the mayor of Boingt put his veto on the building permit. The application followed a six-month feasibility study, orchestrated by Daren Howarth, Kevan Trott and Michael Reynolds and funded by the UK Environment Agency and the Energy Savings Trust.
The home, which is owned by Kevan and Gillian Trott, was built in April 2007 by Kevan, Mike Reynolds and an Earthship Crew from Taos.
They obtained full planning permission in 2007 and finished the Brittany Groundhouse as their own home during 2009. A good overview of the earthships built in Europe can be found on the web page of European Earthship Builder United, together with information on earthships being built.
Some research into performance was done by the University of Brighton on the Brighton Earthship.
It featured on the June 2015 UK Channel 4+ TV programme Kevin McCloud's Escape to the Wild+, season 1, episode 3. I've been fortunate enough over the years to spend time with many friends that smoke which has exposed me to many different techniques. I looked at old refrigerators, new smokers, and even considered building a wood smoker from scratch. I hope that the smoking tradition continues for many years and provides great meals like the smoked salmon pictured below. You are currently viewing our boards as a guest which gives you limited access to view most discussions and access our other features. Also you need to make the side stringers (A and B in the stick drawing) full length to carry the load and more importantly spread the load. Earthships are designed to use thermal mass+ construction and natural cross ventilation, assisted by thermal draught (Stack effect+), to regulate indoor temperature. The outer walls in the majority of Earthships are made of earth-rammed tires, but any dense material with a potential to store heat, such as concrete, adobe, earth bags+, or stone, could theoretically be used to create a building similar to an Earthship.
The second member, who stands on the tire, uses a sledgehammer to pack the dirt in while moving in a circle around the tire to keep the dirt even and avoid warping the tire. As water collects on the roof, it is channeled through a silt-catching device and into a cistern.
In the botanical cell the water is oxygenated+ and filtered+ using bacteria and plants to reduce the nutrient load.
The incubator stores the sun's heat in its concrete mass, and is insulated, to help the anaerobic process. Photovoltaic+ panels and windturbine+s located on or near the Earthship generate DC energy that is then stored in several types of deep-cycle batteries+. In addition to the exterior tire walls, some Earthships are sunk into the earth to take advantage of earth-sheltering+ to reduce temperature fluctuations. This may be due to belief that ground-coupled structures, buildings in thermal contact with the ground, do not require insulation. Earthships are positioned so that its principal wall, which is nonstructural and made mostly of glass sheets, faces directly towards the equator. As the hot air rises, the system creates a steady airflow - of cooler air coming in, and warmer air blowing out. The earthship, near Hermanus+, is located in a 60 hectare private nature reserve which is part of a 500000 hectare area enclosed in a game fence and borders the Walker Bay+ Nature Reserve. Although Mike Reynolds and a team of interns helped complete the first two classrooms, the majority of the building was built by community members who had been trained in Reynolds' building techniques. Josephine Overeem, the woman who wanted to build the earthship, and Michael Reynolds decided to do a demonstration model in her back yard at her residence in Strombeek+ (Belgium). In 2005, the first earthship in England was established in Stanmer Park+, Brighton+ with the Low Carbon Trust+. The successful application was for sixteen one, two, and three-bedroom earthship homes on this site, expected to have a sale price of 250 - 400,000 pounds.


The design was modified for a European climate and is seen as the first of many for the European arena.
The build experience and learning is documented in the UK Grand Designs+ series and in their book. A good chronological overview on the earthships built in Europe by Michael Reynolds+ can be found in the article 'Europe'.

Smoking can be traced thorough out American history from the Native Americans to George Washington’s home at Mt Vernon. After about a year of looking I came across an old tray carrier from the food service industry. Then, I built shelves, installed thermometers, added fire bricks to the floor and cut the divider out between the racks. During my test I was able to keep the smoker between 130 and 140 degrees consistently for 8 hours.

I'm thinking of putting a ceiling in soon after I get my pole barn built and everything out of the packed garage. When I got my building quote the price for the interior walls was a $2500 option the interior ceiling was a $6500 option which I did not get. I guess its hard to say if the bed of the truck will be strong enough and I guess that depends on how much weight you put in the cab over area? The tire walls are strengthened by using concrete in the tires on the ends, called "concrete half blocks". The cisterns are positioned so they gravity-feed a water organization module (WOM) that filters out bacteria and contaminants and makes it suitable for drinking.
Water from the incubator is channeled out either to an exterior leach field+ or to landscaping "planter cells", concrete cells containing plants. The space in which the batteries are kept is usually a special, purpose-built room placed on the roof. The energy run through the Power Organizing Module can be used to run any household appliance including washing machines, computers, kitchen appliances, print machines, and vacuums. It also may be due to climatic differences between New Mexico+ where earthships were first built and cloudier, cooler, and wetter climates. CLEVEL invited Reynolds from Belgium to Brighton in the UK, and orchestrated plans for the earthship in Brighton, started in 2003. The homes are all designed according to basic earthship principles developed in the United States and adapted to the UK. Since it is illegal to use tires in Belgium (for risk of leaking toxic metals like lead and zinc), the project uses earthbags+ to build their earthship instead. Figure of the Earth+ The expression figure of the Earth has various meanings in geodesy according to the way it is used and the precision with which the Earth's size and shape is to be defined.
Because my new smoker is made from all metal I felt it important to make the racks out of wood.
If I doubled my fire I could get the temp up to 170 degrees and sustain that temp as long as needed without the use of vents.
Obviously with 4' OC joists, drywall and plywood are basically out of the question so i was thinking of using some kind of ribbed metal. Then again I see a lot of bed mounted utility frames on trucks carrying all kinds of crazy weight. A finished earth-rammed tire is large enough to surpass conventional requirements for structural load distribution to the earth. The cells are similar to the botanical cell used in greywater treatment and are usually placed just before and under the windows of the earthship.
Additional energy, if required, can be obtained from gasoline-powered generators or by integrating with the city grid.
Thermal performance problems seen in some earthship designs may also have occurred due to thermal mass+ being erroneously equated to R-value+. To allow the sun to heat the mass of the Earthship, the solar-oriented wall is angled so that it is perpendicular to light from the winter sun. This was the beginning of a series of trips made by Reynolds and the construction of earthships in the UK, France and the Netherlands.
15,000 tires will be recycled to construct these homes (the UK burns approximately 40 million tires each year). I felt the wood racks would help it season and retain many of the qualities and flavor of a wood smokehouse.

My carpenters shall therefore erect gibbets on which to hang all concerned when the widow is consumed.
Water is then pushed into a conventional pressure tank to create common household water pressure.
This allows for maximum exposure in the winter, when heat is wanted, and lesser exposure in the summer, when heat is to be avoided. The plans include the enhancement of habitats on the site for lizard+s that already live there, which is the reasoning behind entitling the project "The Lizard". I elected to not use propane as a heat source, but chose to use a more traditional fire of charcoal and green alder cut in 4 inch chunks.
Malcolm Wells+, an architect and authority on earth-sheltered design, recommends an imperial R-value+ 10 insulation between deep soils and heated spaces. Some Earthships, especially those built in colder climates, use insulated shading on the solar-orientated wall to reduce heat loss during the night. I also had no issues in cutting the holes in the sheets for the electrical boxes for light fixtures.
