Waooo, amazing … But I’m not sure it’s so “green” when I think about the number of Pakistani they killed to collect so many used sandals :-(

I would like more info and more pictures. Did yo blog about this perhaps. I want to know how this works. Used tires are the new “natural” resourse.

The term for the smell is ‘off gassing’ and occurs when tires are exposed to UV light – so yeah it would smell and the roof would burn toxicly if it caught fire as plenty of oxygen to mix with. Tires walls covered in plaster/render don’t off gas and don’t burn unless exposed.

I bet these tyres are under some kind of treatment. Personally I prefer roofing made of plastic with the same red color of ceramic, it seems recycled but I’m not sure (I hope it is).

I am constructing a treehouse and am going to try out the idea of using old tires for roofing material.

nice idea…..but tend to agree about the smell, fire hazard……and, I think, a lot of heavy metals associated with Tyres?
