"The Low-Cost Underground House Workshop by Mike Oehler" is a video that shows how to build underground and use poly sheets to make it water proof. It's a great video that should help you waterproof your dwelling - I bet it will give you a bunch of good ideas.

Mike Oehler also authors a book called "The $50 and up underground house" :

This forum's owner has a video with the author on youtube too :
