Igloo construction, architecturally.

A few questions that are not answered in your FAQ's: 1. How much do the materials cost? How much does the overall construction realistically cost? 2. Are these houses off-grid? How do the electric and water systems work? 3. How do zoning laws generally affect the construction of these houses? Are they legal in most areas? 4. How much does each additional room generally cost? 5. Are there any that are already built that are open to the public for viewing? 6. I'm interested in having a greenhouse in my home where I can grow food indoors as well as out. Is this feasible with the Magic Green Homes?
