Earth sheltered home

hi~
my husband and I are very excited to buy our first earth sheltered home! Does anyone know what we should look for with maintaining the home? has anyone painted concrete walls/ceilings? Any tips or ideas?

Thanks!

What climate region do you live in? I feel as though the moisture/weather conditions would have an effect on how your walls would accept paint :P

It's always good to have a Earth sheltered home but before constructing this kind of any house we need remember to provide proper drainage around the house.

Well this is good idea but it is depend on the climate because Earth Sheltered can taste in hills with covered green grass.
I have good reference which can give you good assistance of designs, planning, under ground sheltering etc.

This sounds great but you have to conduct serious research into the proper maintaining part so everything goes well. Share pictures of your finished earth sheltered home here

Would love to see some pictures of your new Earth Sheltered Home. As for the maintenance, I think it depends on the temperature of your place.
