Living in Caves

I think these houses are really cool. I’d like to live in a cave.

Homes That Are Built Inside Caves

By Melissa Friedling, MainStreet

People all over the world have lived in cave dwellings for millennia, and do to this day – in China, the American Southwest, France, Spain, Turkey, and Iran (to name just a few).

And it is no wonder, since caves are cool in the summer, warm in the winter, offer great protection from the elements and have fewer building-material expenses. There are challenges too – lack of light and damp air – but these have been largely solved in the modern troglodyte lifestyle.

What’s not to like?



I like this last one especially.
