They are made from stuff like tires, aluminum cans and bottles. Is that cool or what? Oh, and the best part of all - you can rent them for vacation in Taos and ONE of them even allows pets! The nice lady at Earthship explained that the reason they only rent that one has something to do with planters that are built into the house and close to the floor. Apparently some of us dogs are irresistably attracted to them and like to dig and uh, do other stuff to them. But, one of the houses is made differently and is safe for (and from) doggies. Yayyy! Bet you never stayed anywhere this cool before!
