Meanwhile, in Biras, in the Dordogne, Pauline, Benjamin and Noéha live in a buried house, partly built with waste such as bottles, cans and even tires. “We had to recover 6,000 glass bottles. “To do this, they toured restaurants, bars and nightclubs. The greenhouse at the front of the building captures the sun’s heat which is then retained in the tire wall. To regulate the temperature of the house, they use a special ventilation system called “Canadian wells”.

The concept of the earthship was invented by an American architect, Michael Reynolds, in the 1970s. This habitat is self-sufficient in energy, thanks to 12 solar panels and a solar water heater. The 100 square meter sloping roof also collects rainwater which is then filtered and stored in tanks. The construction of this 150 square meter house cost 250,000 euros, excluding the price of the land. Thanks to the establishment of a school-site of around one hundred people, the structure emerged from the ground in 24 days. Several months were then necessary to finalize the work.
