Earthship inspiration

We took a family vacation to the Earthships in Taos New Mexico.  We spent the first night in the Corner Cottage and the second night in the Phoenix.  During our stay we saw many examples of glass bottle, plastic bottle, and can bricks.  Here are some pictures we took of the different kinds of bricks.
