Earthship Kansas: A Home Made of Old Tires

A couple spends two years building a massive, yet light and airy, home out of old tires.

Marble reclaimed from a Kansas City hospital graces the floor of the Millsteins’ curved entryway. The circa 1974 stained glass panel inset into the Millsteins’ front door formerly decorated the entrance to a local art glass business. Tinted plaster covers all interior walls, eliminating the need for paint.
