Talk about living in harmony with the Earth.

The ancient becomes modern, and not a moment too soon. Here in rural northern California the opportunities for this type of housing are endless, and our culture of innovation should be fertile soil for underground housing. However, many years of experience tell me that simple intellectual inertia can be a real idea killer. Convincing local planning and health officials as well as homeowners and investors of the soundness of this approach will be no easy matter, at best. Being able to point to real world examples like this can be helpful and hope springs eternal. Design may save the world, but only if the powers can be convinced to pull their collective head out of….ahh….the ground and put some houses into it, windmills upon it etc. Congratulations to the team at MAKE. It would be interesting to hear more about their experience with the planning and approval process.
