1. How much of the concrete used in an Earthship could be replaced with Cob?
2. I live in Southern Ohio and it gets really humid in the summer, how do you deal with humidity during those months?
3. And my final question is would it be quicker, cheaper and less toxic to build with Earthbags than tires?

That's kind of what I have thought about number 3 myself.
What kind of horror stories have you heard about using tyres?
I just completely uncomfortable about using tires simply because you never know were and what they have been driven thought.
The bond beam, buttresses, footings and exterior stucco need concrete.
