Peter Vetsch - Earth Houses
- Published on: 2/23/2015
- Earth houses are houses built using soil or natural terrain features to help form the walls. Such buildings are partly or completely embedded into the ground.
Architect Peter Vetsch is a major advocate for earth houses, and has built over 90 such homes over the course of his career. One of the main advantage of earth houses is insulation : the thermal inertia of the walls and absence of air leaks makes for naturally energy efficient buildings.
