it's official - i do have a raccoon as a roommate! - now do i evict him/her or let him/her stay rent free?! - hummmm - u know deep down inside i wanna leave "it" alone - but i also don't want damage done to my house that will cost me a fortune to fix .. breaks my heart to make the lil guy/gal leave! .. Joe says i build him a lil home so this way he can stay near and i won't feel bad - i'm actually thinking of doing such! - i know i'm a lil cookey when it comes to animals!
lets now switch gears a lil back to what this blog was all about - things i LOVE and inspire me in life - take a look at these 5 homes - all built underground! - now that's some WOW factor right there! - i'm hooked by this idea already - even tho the idea of not a lot of natural sunlight sorta' leaves a sour taste in my mouth - BUT to live in one of these, i think i could make do!

what do you think? - something for you or a total pass by?
i admit - i'm smitten with this - i love anything that has a "wow factor" to it - and well these are just beyond stunning - i just want a tour inside BADLY - anyone else wanna take a tour with me?!

i also would like to know how earth friendly these homes are?!?! - many of you know i'm very passionate about 'saving the earth' - so when i pass by a housing development going up and i see the thousands of tree's builders knock down for unneeded housing - it kills me - i always think to REUSE - why take more from the earth then you need - animals need shelter too - and if you can't afford to buy a house, knock it down, and rebuild then DO NOT BUY -- but that's me and my "save the earth" antics -- i seriously have such a soft spot for our earth and we are just tearing it to pieces! - feel me?!

  1. Ah - good luck with the raccoon!
    These underground private spaces are awesome! Not sure I could live there full time - but it would be an amazing get away spot!

    Hope you're having a lovely week!

  2. I'd love to tour them but I don't have a desire to live in them. I have no idea on your new housemate - that's a tricky one, good luck :)

  3. My parents had a raccoon living inside the ceiling above my room after last year's tornado! I love all your natural homes - why not make the most of the existing environment?
