It passed the Mother-in-law test when at Christmas it was minus 20 F outside and a bright sunny day and no additional heat was needed. When auxiliary heat is needed there is a wood stove, fireplace and a gas furnace. In the summer, the sun is high in the sky thus reflecting most of its energy off the windows and not in the home. By ventilating with a fan at night it keeps the home cool in the summer. The masonry/concrete structure is the heat storage of the home. The earth covers the home on the top and back, making it quiet and insulated. Think of the protection this home can give over a conventional home. For example, it can withstand a hurricane over a conventional framed home. Also, this home has lots of unique features in the home like spiral stairs to a roomy loft. There is a loft in each of the upstairs bedrooms and wood beams throughout the home. Along with a 2 car garage that is attached, it comes with a shop/garage approximately 30' x 38'. Behind the home, there is covered storage areas for a travel trailer, boat, and 4 wheelers.
