Love the concept of earth sheltered homes. 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 Pinnacle House is an award-winning, sustainably-designed home in Lyme, New Hampshire. The home was designed and built by architect Don Metz in 1971, a pioneer in green home design and construction. The north-side of the house is built into the hillside, creating a green roof through the use of earth-sheltered building techniques. The house faces due south, offering passive solar gain and spectacular views from every room. thepinnaclehouse.com
