    I've always wanted to built a berm house with steel I-Beams and lots of glass. Its a little late now but I have a perfect spot for one on a hillside that has a cliff ending in a meadow that abuts my stream. Its about 800 yards from the road on the western side. Maintaining an access would be challenging if I continued to work away from home but with the proper equipment, not insurmountable. The only downside is that the cliff front faces east instead of south.

    I looked at a great piece of property today.... but it was flat and would only be useable with a regular above ground green house. I will have to remember this Walipini if we find a suitable property for that technique.

    Makes sense to me. At @6' down, there is a year round 56° , add solar and it would be pretty cozy. Might be better as a dome though. More area inside and out, and the sun angle would not matter.
