Is There An Oil Well In The Garden?

Recommended Posts

E-mailed an EA about a 2 bed semi cottage in Frodsham, Cheshire, advertised through Rightmove (priced 299,950). Wondered what the special features were?! No answer yet.

Maybe it has a few thousand old car tyres? Enough to build a housing estate maybe?


Earthships are built by stacking up tyres, which are then packed with earth and recycled rubbish, and then plastered over. The mass of the walls is harnessed to heat and cool the homes. The Brighton project has been labelled the Lizard, to reflect this natural way of controlling temperature.

The homes, if built, will also collect their own water and be powered by solar panels and wind turbines.

"People love the idea," said Daren Howarth, Biotecture's development director. "We have already received around 100 expressions of interest from buyers."

If the estate gets the go ahead from Brighton and Hove council, the homes are expected to fetch between £250,000 and £350,000 each. Some might also be available for rent through a housing association.

Fantastic idea but HOW MUCH?????????
