This example may not be as firmly in the “pro” category. A great example of the 90 degree facing design style, this underground home was however abandoned and eventually demolished due to mold and water activity. Among the complaints of the owner are a lack of exterior noise (which may not be a detractor for some) and mold growth. Facing repairs, the couple apparently chose to build and move into a traditional home on the property.
