buildingFoxhole founder and CEO Ted Brinegar said the not-for-profit organization’s mission is to build sustainable, low carbon footprint housing for veterans that require little or no maintenance and uses repurposed materials such as tires, glass bottles, and cardboard to keep construction cost down and to heat and cool the homes keeping utility costs to a minimum.

“When you hear a house is built from dirt and tires it seems sketchy, but when the homes are finished they will look like a southwestern home, but with extra windows facing south,” Brinegar said.

Brinegar’s designs are based on Earthship Biotecture and have been optimized for the unique climate in southern New Mexico.

“We will be working closely with state and local building code officials to demonstrate, that even though we may be using new or different techniques and building materials, that we are meeting or exceeding the intent of the code requirements,” he said.

Foxhole’s board of directors is comprised of volunteer experts in construction, earthworks, communications and military veteran affairs.
