Those are pretty neat. But I don't know if I could live in one. I have to have natural light. I live in Montana and it would be a shame to not be able to see the views in every room. If we will the lottery (heh) I want a whole wall in our bedroom to be glass, with an automatic shade. AND is removable automatically. I could just not have a wall on some days. So much fresh-smelling air. That would be fantastic.

I saw an episode of house hunters international and the couple were buying a cave home. I think it's awesome and very eco-friendly. I want to build a straw bale home, or possibly a cord-wood masonry partly subterranean home one day, just cause. lol
On the show, the inside of the caves looked very cozy and warm and inviting, not dark and dreary. Some of them you couldn't even tell you were in a cave, just looked like a condo.Others had some exposed rocks, very cool looking.

I drive past the Az cave house every time I go to visit my MIL. It was up for sale not long ago and the listing had LOTS of way cool photos. I toyed with the idea of pretending to be interested in buying it so I could get a good look inside. But in the end I figured I just couldn't do that the realtor.

Ooh I didn't think of that. I imagine you would have to you some kind of bug/arachnid repellant.

it would be awesome as long as the creepy cave bugs stayed far, far away. a friend of mine has a cabin in northern Wisconsin that is built into a hill. it was really neat but the spiders were terrible.

That is so cool. I would LOVE to do that. No utility bills, great view, wildlife ahhhhhh.

I would totally do it if I lived in a mountainous area... or above sea level...lol. On a family vacation as a kid, we went to South Dakota (Mount Rushmore, Laura Ingalls Wilder homestead, etc.) and saw a pioneer home made in the side of a hill. We were able to go in and it was like air condition! On another vacation to Colorado we saw the cliff dwellings at Mesa Verde. It was a whole city on the side of a mountain. Amazing how resourceful the Native Americans were with what they had.That was my favorite thing we saw on that vacation. (We weren't rich, by the way, but we did take vacations every summer. My dad is a historian and wanted to show us American history up close. They scrimped and saved every year for that!)
