Though the above photo is part of a movie set, real Hobbit houses and underground dwellings are an up and coming movement of today and for obvious reasons. The following quote gives quick reference of advantages to making your dwelling underground. The full article, containing much more detail is in the link below.

Underground houses have less surface area so fewer building materials are used, and maintenance costs are lower. They are also wind, fire and earthquake resistant, providing a secure and safe environment in extreme weather. One of the greatest benefits of underground living is energy efficiency. May 6, 2020″
Underground Construction – Sustainable Build

The whole concept of living underground amazes me. Imagine, being out of the path of hurricanes and tornadoes in your own underground bunker that maintains cooler temperatures in the summer and warmer temperatures in the winter. There are so many ways to wrap your head around endless possibilities for what your own underground dwelling could be. What follows are a couple of You Tube videos that can better explain what this could look like for you. Enjoy.

Is this not such a good space saver: being able to park your car on your roof!

I love the use of nature in this one. Very unique build.
