Michael Reynolds builds self-sufficient ‘earthships’ that generate their own power.

Full name: Michael Reynolds

Age: 63

Current position: Founder of Earthship Biotecture

How I got to here in 10 words or less: Don’t give up.

* * *

Architect Michael Reynolds has built more than 1,000 homes from materials including used car tires and glass-bottle bottoms. He calls his self-sufficient designs “earthships” because they require little heating or cooling and generate their own electricity and water. His company, Earthship Biotecture of Taos, N.M., designs and builds sustainable homes world-wide.

    you in less than 24 hours, otherwise you can delete my link from your
    site.
