Love the concept of earth sheltered homes. Contractor " built my first one (earth bermed) in 1984 in Grafton, NH". Why do we still build energy wasting boxes on a lot that can be easily ravaged by hurricanes and tornados?
Earth Sheltered Homes and Berm Houses - a great cutaway view of how to set up a bermed home to allow light on each level, (front and back) as well as perfect indoor growing conditions for indoor gardens and green walls. It's an idea.
