It's a great idea if you live in a hilly or mountinous area, but where I live the land is as flat as a pancake. I would love to be able to buld something like this, if nothing else, as a work shop, or a root celler. (Where I live was swamp land untl one of FDR's alphabet soup groups drained it to make it easier to farm.)

I'v got a real problem with building a house at the bottom of a hill.
Witnessed mudslides in person and seen how they kill, NO THANKS.
Though I have looked into this kind of building because I like the architecture, NOT BECAUSE IT'S "GREEN"
I would like one of these in the desert, I think that would be nice.
I have seen some mud houses, I dont want to call then adobe because Im not sure that's what they are, in any case they looked pretty good and were suppose to be fairly cheap.

Not quite as cool as the Hobbit Hut, but shipping containers are plentiful and cheap.

I REALLY want to do this but dont have the $$ for land. If someone has land I will build them one if they let me build there also. I definatly have the skills to do this. This is so cool. What are the gov. restrictions? Would they have to know?
