The Complete Book Of Underground Houses 

Rob Roy

Preference :

According to Roy, underground or `earth-sheltered' houses are unexpectedly livable. Judging by his book's attractive pictures, that's easy to believe. The house he bases his point-by-point guide on is indeed a showplace. Its homey touches are just that, though, and Roy's main concern is creating such a house, from drawing up the plans to surveying the site to the actual building. Roy's instruction is insightful and comprehensive...Throughout, he covers construction and installation details that are extremely important for nonprofessionals brave enough to undertake to build their own homes
