Helpful comments and links to tutorials would be most appreciated! I'm considering building an earth-sheltered home by myself, using the (plentiful) local rocks and the abandoned foundations of an early 20th century house.  Above the house, the ground is extremely steep; it's forested, but a slippery climb.

For some reason this thread deleted the rest of my post... I seem to only post one sentence at a time.

Wow, I give up, this form has some bug preventing my posts from coming through.

I think there is a glitch going on right now. So don't give up - just wait a few days and try again.

We've gotta get close enough to that helmet to pull the choke on it's engine and flood his mind! Or, we could just read this tiny ad:
