    A friend of mine has one. He lives it. Even during the hottest part of summer when everybody’s electric bill is through the roof his stats low

    Got a buddy gonna build one in a year or two. We checked into it before we bought a house
    and it sounds like a good idea. Need to plan on ventilation and humidity.

    When we first moved to Jessamine County we lived on the same farm as our landlord who had an in ground home. Technically their home was only partially in ground, with one wall entire wall exposed with lots of windows. I would describe it as a walk out basement without the upstairs.

    Faced south and had mature hardwoods in front yard. Summer the leaves were on and provided shade, winter no leaves so lots of natural light.

    Only thing I didn't like was the layout, long but only one room deep. They heated the entire home with wood only, and cooled it in summer with a very small AC unit.
