Glenn, our place doesn’t look like a berm/earth house from the road (as you can see from the photo). It’s kind of like a modern earth house. The solar panel is in the front. Looking at the photo, the left side (1/3 of house) is Scott’s workshop. He loves to make machines for automation, from design to finished product. Army major, pilot, wrote Army training manual for helicopter pilots, creates media video adverts and virtual video tours for companies, designed my garden shed; he’s like a Renaissance man. Here’s some photos.
1st pic, just bought house. 2nd pic, after putting in driveway and built garden shed.
Glenn, the loft runs the entire length (65 ft) of the house (top windows) and my office
is on the right side, starting at the top floor-to-ceiling window on the right side of
solar panel. Scott basically has the whole left 1/3 of the house, top (his office) to
bottom (workshop). The bedrooms are at the back of the house against the berm with
huge window wells where we get lots of light for the back rooms. No grass on the roof,
