Finish the back wall of the reception/general store which is an earthship style building. Currently, the wall is made of exposed tires filled with sand. This finishing detail will beautify the welcome area and bring us a step closer to finishing our earthship. We’ll be setting the base for PART 2 of this COB series by shaping out our exposed rocket stove bench.
