Going green is something the world at large is doing in order to sustain mother earth. This is being done by finding ways to spend the least amount of energy, using sustainable resources and working to the best to live in harmony with nature. Building Eco-friendly products has come a long way to the point of building Eco homes. These homes are built with the principles of sustainable design taking priority. They come in such resplendent designs that they awe and help you connect with your inner self. Consider a house that has a green roof, literally!
Vegetation is planted on roofs to enable houses to self insulate. This also enables the house to soak in rain water rather than drain it. More complex designs of these earth houses are built in the ground or on naturally occurring terrain that can allow for the integration of concrete walls and insulation. These Eco homes are naturally insulated and hence protected from abrasive weather that shorten the life span of the houses. Earth houses are artistic works and are only limited to the creativity of the house owner and architect. Modern earth homes use fine grained sprayed concrete which can be shaped in a curvacious manner that is a definite shift from standard housing.
Earth houses have many advantages to them though they can be pricey to set up. You could put the entrance on the roofs which would allow you to go down into Eco homes. Protection from storms is increased based on the architectural design of more curves and arches that offer less resistance. The blanket of soil on top of the roof that can be as much as 3 meters offers a great deal of protection as well. This soil blanket in turn gives rise to the production of more oxygen for the atmosphere as it is carpeted with vegetation. A truly innovative way to go green.
