Our Green Story
Why I Built a Beautiful Home in 1987 and Buried It!
Why did I build a perfectly good house in 1987 and buried it? First, I want to pass down my house to my children and grandchildren. Being out of the elements with no outside maintenance it could last 600 years. Secondly, by doing so, I’m currently saving $300 per month on utilities! A house this size built above ground would cost approximately $300 per month on heating and cooling. My underground home is under the frost line, and in Michigan this layer is four feet deep. Within that layer it stays 54° year-round on the outside of my home. Since my home faces the south. The glass windows in front of the house create what’s called passive solar. My outside walls stay about 70° year-round and provide 90% of my heating and cooling. I don’t have a furnace or air conditioning either.
Years ago, utility costs were much less. If you take the average expenses over the 32 years I’ve lived there. I saved $76,800.00, but you can’t write off your energy bills you pay in after-tax dollars. So, as of now my house has approximately saved me $100,000 on my utility bills! Lastly, I don’t have a furnace, air conditioning unit, roofs, or painting that requires repairs and replacement.
