I'm still of a mindset for earth sheltered homes. Low maintenance, low energy sustainment costs, comparable construction costs. Google earth sheltered homes...they don't have to be dome-shaped, but simple physics says that shape should be incorporated. They can be built anywhere, and will all reap the future benefits of good planning and longevity. That being said, concrete and steel are the best shell materials. Inside can be whatever your heart desires. I suppose, mentioning that a properly sealed house of this type also requires an air exchanger.
