Amazing how three ladies can dug out this lovely underground home on their own by hand! And it's a lovely home, cozy and warm!

“A taste of underground living.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

We first visited Faye's house some thirty years ago and nothing much has changed. It's amazing to see the many rooms chiseled out of the rock underground and hear how it all came about. Short of space? Simply get to work and dig some more! The temperature stays constant and comfortable and the home is low maintenance as well. Amazing!

“Good value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2012

You get a one on one tour which is very personal. You get to ask all the questions you want and it is so interesting to actually walk through the underground house. Everything about how she built it was explained.
