What brought us here.
For a couple years I have been interested in building a house that could take advantage of energy efficient green construction methods and off-the-grid technology, however, convincing your family to begin building a house that is typically unconventional and sometimes extreme, at least in my mind, would prove difficult. So when my wife informed me a few months back that she would love to live in a house like Bilbo Baggins my mind started racing.
Follow us on our journey from living in a "hot-in-the-summer cold-in-the-winter" house that floods every time it rains, right in the middle of a city to an energy efficient earth sheltered house located on a piece of property we haven't purchased yet.
