So i have bren planning on building an earthship for some time. But now that I have seen my property in person i noticed that my soil is mainly just sand. Is it possible to fill the tires with sand? If not what type of natural building would you recommend?

Yes. Just make sure you pack your sidewalls--nothing different. Start upon solid compaction
