THe beginnings of a sketchup model. The walls, shown as adobe, are cob covered pounded earth tires. The tires aren't in this model however. The front frame work isn't complete, nor the entrance ways. There will be planters along the front inside the windows that will be used for grey water treatmeant. The roof shown here is just a steel covered insulated core roof. A green roof and earth berming around the walls will be used.
As I improve at sketchup, I will get the full model done. It will include all elements, from landscape to utility (water/power) lines and outlets. A seperate model will show the exterior wood furnance, power tower, and utility buildings for this building. #lost_acres_tire_home
