As more homeowners are looking to live as sustainable as possible, more and more are looking to alternate modes of homeownership that may not be the typical ones we know. Earth-sheltered homes provide a unique and sustainable way of living for homeowners who are looking to be more eco-friendly. Not only are these homes less environmentally invasive than traditional homes, but they offer a variety of benefits in both the comfort and sustainability areas of homeownership.


There are a few different types of earth-sheltered homes:

- earth-covered homes that incorporate the living roof design (and it is becoming very popular in cities around the country);

- in-hill homes (which are essentially real-life modern hobbit holes). Each offers its own unique benefits.


BigRentz created an infographic listing all the information about these wonderful homes — like how they incorporate the local flora and fauna, automatically being more eco-friendly than traditional homes.
