    Why we live in houses -> read the story of the 3 little piggies

    Why our houses are not underground -> we have a pineal gland, it needs sunlight to keep us happy and moving

    I like windows.

    I'd feel claustrophobic if I couldn't see my surroundings too. It would feel like being in a great big fancy coffin.

    I don't know about you guys, but my dream house is a bunker, with only a shack basically showing on the surface which houses an elevator or stairs or something. I think that would be both awesome and hilarious!

    Well, for starters, the Mole People would have territorial advantage.

    We have a religious observance called, "Bush Walking".

    So we live in a house during the week and go bush in the weekend.

    And when we return to our house, we appreciate it all the more.

    And when we get tired of our house, we pack our swag and go bush.

    People have them here. Naturally they offer a great deal in energy efficiency, even with heavy heating needs here in the north. It seems the majority of the problems or maybe why you don't see more of them is financing and insuring them. This house is in the upper peninsula of Michigan.

    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    I believe it can be summed upped by how many skyscrapers we have in the world. It is that much easier to build up instead of building underneath. The cost to maintain such a building is probably a lot harder underground than it is up a few thousand feet above the ground.

    There is also the issue of where you live. The city where I live, it can be prone to flooding during the rainy season (usually around this time.) An underground house will do my city no good if it does turn out that there will be flooding.

    There is a lot of those illegal plants and vegetables that cannot be imported to one country or another. Just gotta look at flight warnings.

    I suffer from claustrophobia. We have a lot of old coal mines you can visit in my hometown, but I cant stay for too long down there, makes me go crazy.

    I like that house, its turnable towards the suns movement and has an integrated compost.
