I've done lots of reading but little building as yet. Partially because of this one question...How safe is an underground house built using the PSP method during an earthquake? I understand the principal about it just moving along with the earth movement, but what about soils that experience liquification -is that the right word?? I'm wondering if anyone here had any experience and/or advice on building and living underground in an earthquake prone region. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
