Living a life in an eco-friendly earth home may bring you more peace and happiness than you think. If you’re considering these types of houses, there are pros and cons that you should be aware of.
First of all, I think that there are a lot of pros when living underground such as conserving energy. The temperature inside is moderate enough (50-60°F) so you don’t have to use a lot of energy to heat up. Another advantage is that the house is very secure. You don’t have to worry about much since your house is under ground. In addition, earth homes are very quiet and this is perfect for people who wish to live in peace. Also, the storms and tornadoes won’t affect the house.
Secondly, as for the disadvantages of living underground, you might lack the sunlight. If the house doesn’t have enough windows, it may get dark very easily. Moreover, water can seep through the walls, after heavy rains. Installing two doors is also important, for safety. And also you’ll have to wait a long time if you want to sell this unique house.
In conclusion, as with any home, you’ll find pros and cons when buying a house. You should take into consideration every aspect and later make a decision which will make you happy.
