Earthships offer sustainable housing options.

I was down in Taos, NM on a day off from work and visited an Earthship community. These seem to be a very sustainable as well as intriguing housing option. The main issues that emerged when discussing Earthships with my coworkers included modifying city housing restrictions or the Earthships to allow them within city limits, insuring such homes, and getting people to see Earthships not as a housing possibility for hippies but as a plausible housing option.
