Hijinks Ensue

Underground house

Apologies if you've already seen this on Boing Boing. Some of you will have listened to me ramble at length about my long-term dream of building an ecologically friendly underground house in the countryside, and thought me to be more than a little mad for considering it. Well, this house is exactly the kind of construction I'm talking about, and I think it proves that it's not only possible but it can be done for a much lower cost than a boring standard bricks and mortar house, providing you can manage to buy a suitable piece of land and obtain planning permission to build on it.
