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.

This lady would make an excellent teacher, I will probably never forget that this house is Earth integrated and below the frost line, at 12-14 inches

There's another name for this kind of construction: "Earth-sheltered". However, I wouldn't want to live without windows, so I can't look out and see the sun and trees and the weather, and have no windowsills for my plants. I have in the past wondered if this kind of housing might be ideal for northern peoples, Crees and Inuit, for example.

The lady has a unique way of sounding so unenthusiastic about their achievements. Like "Yeah, we were the first people to walk on the moon. I guess it was interesting. You can make jelly with these berries in the fall. I do that sometimes"

I immediately like every house on youtube when I see a dog roaming freely happily wandering around everywhere he likes. Don't care if it's a tiny house or a historic building or an earthship or a boat or a tipi or a treehouse or a cave or a submarine or an appartment.. I finally found the secret that makes houses attractive

I wonder if they really did the work she said they did or just watched the worker? Fridge looks small and kid almost caught her hands... All that custom stuff cost money. I do give them credit on design and not making another wasteful Mcmansion , but probably costs triple what regulated construction cost , and one problem I can see is roof failure end water leaking or seeping in. Props also on the skylights that will heat also and I wonder if any open in summer? Also amazing advantage on heating and cooling in that climate . thumbs up
