Earthship Can Walls
The picture on the right is a close up of a can wall. You can see how it is layered with cans and then concrete and then another layer of cans. You can also see how the tabs of the cans all point to the outside. This is done whenever possible due to the tab acting as a lathe for the adobe plaster to hold onto.
this picture you can see the beginning of the plastering. The plastering of
the can walls starts off with a layer of concrete and then finishes with adobe
or stucco depending on the location of your wall. Unlike the external can walls,
the cans can't all point in the same direction because you need to plaster
on each end of the cans.
This is the master bathroom. You can see the tomato plant on the left. This tomato plant produces wonderful tomatoes year round and has lasted three years. The bathtub in the background is shaped to fit your body which is real nice. People have asked us if it bothers us that people can see us through the glass, but when you live out in nature like we do the only thing watching us are the deer and God.
