Bill Lishman's unique underground house was the culmination of years of research and countless hours of design. Why build underground? There are many advantages to earth integrated architecture. With the earth as insulation, heating and cooling energy requirements are significantly reduced, especially in windy areas. Underground homes offer protection from storms, never have to painted, shingled or have the eaves troughs cleaned out! Underground architecture is unobtrusive, leaving clear views, and can be covered with gardens and lawns.

Lishman and his family have lived in their home now for 18 years and according to the builder it has worked exceptionally well. With experience he knows the strengths and weaknesses of the design inside and out. In the future Lishman plans to offer a new updated refinement of his design and make it available in the marketplace to accommodate everything from a single dome dwelling to a whole community of dome homes. To follow Bill's progress on exciting advancement for future domesticated dome dwellers bookmark his site below for updates!
