SFA Photo Of The Day: Earthship Biotecture Home Under Construction In Taos, New Mexico

Patrick and I rented an Earthship home for our stay in Taos, New Mexico last September. Our vacation rental was part of a larger Earthship community, and I photographed one of the homes that was under construction while we were there. This is only the hallway of a pretty palatial earthship, so I can only imagine what the rest of the home will be like, and can't wait to photograph it again the next time we are in Taos - hopefully it will be finished. Some of these homes are personal projects being completed by individual owners, and they spend years designing and crafting them.
