The dream of owning a home has evolved much over the years. Now there is a large population that is considering alternative home options. We’ll take a peek at homes inspired by air and earth. Airplane hangar and underground homes are a lucrative option for those looking for unique architecture and living.
The underground home may bring you back to the mid-century, where many people were building underground homes in fear. Currently, the underground home is an environmentally-conscious decision. Not only is the underground home energy-efficient, but it requires less maintenance, is more private, and boasts stable temperatures throughout the seasons. It offers better shelter from storms and may even qualify for insurance breaks.
Underground home interiors can be unique or quite like traditional homes. Depending on how the home is constructed, it can receive plenty of natural light. Built with a view on a hillside, many have quite lovely views. Some underground homes are deeply ensconced in the ground, while other styles are only partially so.
Airplane hangar homes are built to accommodate those who wish to store airplanes at their home, just as you would store an automobile in the garage. There are residential airstrip communities all over the world where these structures exist that consist of plane storage alongside living space. There are also airplane hangars that have been converted into homes. Either way, this is a living option that may appeal to those that have embraced life in the air. Spacious and open, these structures are versatile and are built to withstand storms, making them ideal for some.
So, you say you want to live in an alternative home? Whether it is air or ground that appeals, these homes offer something different.
