Underground dome house of the family who led geese to fly home

    Paula and Bill Lishman spent many winters in a poorly-insulated A frame cabin before realizing they needed to go underground to use the earth’s energy to stay warm, so they knocked the top off a hill, dropped in ferro-cement domes and covered it up again with dirt. Thanks to skylights cut into every dome and the white-powdered marble that covers the interior, their earth-sheltered home is naturally well-lit despite being below the frost line. Fifteen feet below ground, the soil temperature remains about equal to the annual average temperature of the area’s surface air so earth-sheltered homes use sod’s constant temperature to stay warmer in winter and cooler in summer.
    Bill Lishman believed in rethinking not just the conventional home, but also how we live. He reimagined his home’s refrigerator by building a round appliance that pops up out of the countertop so the heavier cool air stays inside when opened (via compressed air).
    In 1986, Bill Lishman began training Canada Geese to follow his ultralight aircraft and to "teach" the birds migration routes to avoid a threatened extinction. His work on "Operation Migration" brought him popular recognition with the 1996 movie Fly Away Home starring Jeff Daniels.
    Paula Lishman also believes in rethinking convention. In 1979 she began her fashion label reinventing the fur trade by using spun fur to knit her clothing.

Not earth integrated. It's buried. It is still neat though. I put an "E" on the end of it, pronounce it dir-tee.

"We call it "earth integrated" because it's integrated into the earth." That really clears up the important distinction between dome houses with dirt piled on top vs. box-shaped houses with dirt piled on top.

Wealthy people have projects like this, sadly these kinds of projects aren't available to poorer income people. I've noticed that most of the people who have these projects are pretty wealthy to afford construction, etc. Just saw a video about a CEO who went basically off grid but obviously had the means to make the life adjustments.
