Earth berm house plans

Earth berm house plans offer added security against intruders as well as shelter from weather. Dug out designs also keep the home heavily insulated, reducing heating and cooling costs

Cave dwellings have been popular with man for thousands of years, and they continue to do so. Higher utility costs has made the concept even more inviting

Cost to build is relatively the same. Concrete walls and flooring cost a little more, however, there is no exterior finish on two to three sides of the home, which makes up the difference. Roofs may be flat with roof top patio, or sloped with gable ends, offering additional space in the attic for a loft or storage

Unless you live in earthquake territory, such as California, berming into the earth is a wise decision
