$50 and Up Underground House Book – Underground Housing and Shelter via Cool Tools (review).

The $50 & Up Underground House Book teaches how to build the lowest cost, most sunshine-filled, best ventilated and driest underground houses of all. It teaches how to incorporate greenhouses, root cellars and fallout shelters into an underground home. It covers both hillside and flat land design, and explains how to solve drainage problems with dependable gravity rather then expensive, failure-prone building materials. It also details ways to pass or otherwise deal with the building codes.

    I read the original version of this book (possibly even the same book except for the title) more than twenty years ago. My boss, who is a structural engineer, told me he read it in college and it’s realistic in terms of engineering. I have yet to build one but if the NYSE keeps tanking my retirement home might be one of these. :)
