Ok thier was a narticle in MEN in '82 about a root cellar/bungalow that was dug out of the side of a hill and the inside plastered with a cement/earth mix. Looks like an excelent cheap way to make an eficient home ect... I used to have the guys book that went into only slightly more detail describing very nice homes made by this method. I think this was the book: Carter, David: Build it underground : a guide for the self-builder & building professional Article: http://www.motherearthnews.com/library/1982_March_April/Mom_s_Subterranean_Root_Cellar_Bungalow Anyway what I would like to know is does anyone here have any experience with this sort of thing? Or does anyone have any info on getting this book or preferably more/new info on the subject?
