Please Come See My 7 Unusually Cool Earth Homes
Earth..the final frontier! I mean berm homes and cob houses and other stuff like that. Please come see 7 unusually cool Earth Homes for Earth Day 2015.
It’s not easy being green
having to spend each day the color of the leaves
When I think it could be nicer being red, or yellow or gold-
or something much more colorful like that
I’m talking mansion or lovely Victorian Lady.
Green can be cool and eco-friendly-like.
Green can be big like a mountain, or important like a river, or tall like a tree.
I am green and it’ll do fine, it’s beautiful!
And I think it’s what I want to be. Said the frog and me.
Some Earth homes spend each day the color of the earth blending into the surroundings, carved into the ground or hang out looking cool like a tree.
Today is their day.
1. Villa Vas. A hobbit-looking holiday retreat nestled in the Alpine slopes of Vals in Switzerland. One of its many features is radiant floors, something I would install if I were building a new home. See a slide show of the inside of this marvel on SeARCH.
3. Dani Ridge House. A very cool earth home with a curved earth roof over the living room. The shape of the roof reminds me of The Wave House.
4. Earth Flow. A rustic northwest area earth home that blends into its sandy environment.
5. Earthship Farmstead. In the Virginia mountains. The owners wanted a house “where their sheep could graze on the roof.”
A+ beautiful and unusual Earthship house. I love it. It certainly has wonderful views and landscaping. I spy a cow on the roof. Take that Earth Day!
6. House in the Woods, Japanese style.
Inside is all Bamboo and Douglas Fir beams.
Outside, the roof grows plants native to the area.
7. Storybook Cob House. A mud and wood house in Ireland built by hand using natural and salvaged materials. Cob means mixed up earth and straw building material. Cob earth is the soil below top soil. So start digging! See the fairytale bunk beds and the rest of the interior on Storybook Cob House.
I think the cow on the roof wins most unusual earth home. Pick out your favorite.
Hobbit over to check out some Hobbit Houses too.
